How Is Forgiveness And Repentance For Sins Given – Spiritual Reading

How Is Forgiveness And Repentance For Sins Given – Spiritual Reading.



To return to the grand text: “Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.” Our Lord Jesus Christ has gone up that grace may come down. His glory is employed to give greater currency to His grace. The Lord has not taken a step upward except with the design of bearing believing sinners upward with Him.


He is exalted to give repentance; and this we shall see if we remember a few great truths. The work which our Lord Jesus has done has made repentance possible, available, and acceptable. The law makes no mention of repentance, but says plainly, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” If the Lord Jesus had not died and risen again and gone unto the Father, what would your repenting or mine be worth?


We might feel remorse with its horrors, but never repentance with its hopes. Repentance, as a natural feeling, is a common duty deserving no great praise: indeed, it is so generally mingled with a selfish fear of punishment, that the kindliest estimate makes but little of it. Had not Jesus interposed and wrought out a wealth of merit, our tears of repentance would have been so much water spilled upon the ground.


Jesus is exalted on high, that through the virtue of His intercession repentance may have a place before God. In this respect He gives us repentance, because He puts repentance into a position of acceptance, which otherwise it could never have occupied.
When Jesus was exalted on high, the Spirit of God was poured out to work in us all needful graces.


The Holy Ghost creates repentance in us by supernaturally renewing our nature, and taking away the heart of stone out of our flesh. Oh, sit not down straining those eyes of yours to fetch out impossible tears! Repentance comes not from unwilling nature, but from free and sovereign grace. Get not to your chamber to smite your breast in order to fetch from a heart of stone feelings which are not there.


But go to Calvary and see how Jesus died. Look upward to the hills whence comes your help. The Holy Ghost has come on purpose that He may overshadow men’s spirits and breed repentance within them, even as once He brooded over chaos and brought forth order. Breathe your prayer to Him, “Blessed Spirit, dwell with me. Make me tender and lowly of heart, that I may hate sin and unfeignedly repent of it.” He will hear your cry and answer you.



Remember, too, that when our Lord Jesus was exalted, He not only gave us repentance by sending forth the Holy Spirit, but by consecrating all the works of nature and of providence to the great ends of our salvation, so that any one of them may call us to repentance, whether it crow like Peter’s cock, or shake the prison like the jailer’s earthquake. From the right hand of God our Lord Jesus rules all things here below, and makes them work together for the salvation of His redeemed.


He uses both bitters and sweets, trials and joys, that He may produce in sinners a better mind toward their God. Be thankful for the providence which has made you poor, or sick, or sad ; for by all this Jesus works the life of your spirit and turns you to Himself. The Lord’s mercy often rides to the door of our hearts on the black horse of affliction. Jesus uses the whole range of our experience to wean us from earth and woo us to Heaven.


Christ is exalted to the throne of Heaven and earth in order that, by all the processes of His providence, He may subdue hard hearts unto the gracious softening of repentance. Besides, He is at work at this hour by all His whispers in the conscience, by His inspired Book, by those of us who speak out of that Book, and by praying friends and earnest hearts. He can send a word to you which shall strike your rocky heart as with the rod of Moses, and cause streams of repentance to flow forth.


He can bring to your mind some heart-breaking text out of Holy Scripture which shall conquer you right speedily. He can mysteriously soften you, and cause a holy frame of mind to steal over you when you least look for it. Be sure of this, that He who is gone into His glory, raised into all the splendor and majesty of God, has abundant ways of working repentance in those to whom He grants forgiveness. He is even now waiting to give repentance to you. Ask Him for it at once.



Observe with much comfort that the Lord Jesus Christ gives this repentance to the most unlikely people in the world. He is exalted to give repentance to Israel. To Israel! In the days when the apostles thus spoke, Israel was the nation which had most grossly sinned against light and love, by daring to say, “His blood be on us and on our children.” Yet Jesus is exalted to give them repentance! What a marvel of grace! If you have been brought up in the brightest of Christian light, and yet have rejected it, there is still hope.


If you have sinned against conscience, and against the Holy Spirit, and against the love of Jesus, there is yet space for repentance. Though you may be as hard as unbelieving Israel of old, softening may yet come to you, since Jesus is exalted, and clothed with boundless power. For those who went the furthest in iniquity, and sinned with special aggravation, the Lord Jesus is exalted to give to them repentance and forgiveness of sins.


Happy am I to have so full a gospel to proclaim! Happy are you to be allowed to read it! The hearts of the children of Israel had grown hard as an adamant stone. Luther used to think it impossible to convert a Jew. We are far from agreeing with him, and yet we must admit that the seed of Israel have been exceedingly obstinate in their rejection of the Saviour during these many centuries.


Truly did the Lord say, “Israel would none of me.” “He came to his own and his own received him not.” Yet on behalf of Israel our Lord Jesus is exalted for the giving of repentance and remission. Probably my reader is a Gentile; but yet he may have a very stubborn heart, which has stood out against the Lord Jesus for many years; and yet in him our Lord can work repentance.


It may be that you will yet feel compelled to write as William Hone did when he yielded to divine love. He was the author of those most entertaining volumes called the ” Everyday Book,” but he was once a stout–hearted infidel. When subdued by sovereign grace, he wrote:



The proudest heart that ever beat
Hath been subdued in me;
The wildest will that ever rose
To scorn Thy cause and aid Thy foes
Is quell’d my Lord, by Thee.
Thy will, and not my will be done,
My heart be ever Thine;
Confessing Thee the mighty Word,
My Saviour Christ, my God, my Lord,
Thy cross shall be my sign.


(All of Grace) The Lord can give repentance to the most unlikely, turning lions into lambs, and ravens into doves. Let us look to Him that this great change may be wrought in us. Assuredly the contemplation of the death of Christ is one of the surest and speediest methods of gaining repentance. Do not sit down and try to pump up repentance from the dry well of corrupt nature.


It is contrary to the laws of mind to suppose that you can force your soul into that gracious state. Take your heart in prayer to Him who understands it, and say, “Lord, cleanse it. Lord, renew it. Lord, work repentance in it.” The more you try to produce penitent emotions in yourself, the more you will be disappointed; but if you believingly think of Jesus dying for you, repentance will burst forth.


Meditate on the Lord’s shedding His heart’s blood out of love to you. Set before your mind’s eye the agony and bloody sweat, the cross and passion; and, as you do this, He who was the bearer of all this grief will look at you, and with that look He will do for you what He did for Peter, so that you also will go out and weep bitterly. He who died for you can, by His gracious Spirit, make you die to sin; and He who has gone into glory on your behalf can draw your soul after Him, away from evil, and toward holiness.



I shall be content if I leave this one thought with you; look not beneath the ice to find fire, neither hope in your own natural heart to find repentance. Look to the Living One for life. Look to Jesus for all you need between Hell Gate and Heaven Gate. Never seek elsewhere for any part of that which Jesus loves to bestow; but remember, Christ is all.

Oswald Chambers


“Sometimes I go to God and say, “God, if Thou dost never answer another prayer while I live on this earth, I will still worship Thee as long as I live and in the ages to come for what Thou hast done already. God’s already put me so far in debt that if I were to live one million millenniums I couldn’t pay Him for what He’s done for me.” 

A.W. Tozer


“We must begin to feel that God, might bring down its power to earth, and in the mystery of prayer, he gave us with a power which could move the Heavenly Earth.” 

Andrew Murray


“Help” is a prayer that is always answered. It doesn’t matter how you pray–with your head bowed in silence, or crying out in grief, or dancing. Churches are good for prayer, but so are garages and cars and mountains and showers and dance floors. Years ago I wrote an essay that began, “Some people think that God is in the details, but I have come to believe that God is in the bathroom.” 

Anne Lamott


“Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.” 

Mother Teresa


“We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.” 

Oswald Chambers


“As the books of Job, Jeremiah, and Habakkuk clearly show, God has a high threshold of tolerance for what appropriate to say in a prayer. God can “handle” my unsuppressed rage. I may well find that my vindictive feelings need God’s correction – but only by taking those feelings to God will I have the opportunity for correction and healing.” 

Philip Yancey

His face, that hitherto may have been strange and intolerable to me, is transformed in intercession into the countenance of a brother for whom Christ died, the face of a forgiven sinner.” 

Dietrich Bonhoeffer


“Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden.” 

Corrie Ten Boom


“I’ve seen many men work without praying, though I’ve never seen any good come out about it, but I’ve never seen a guy pray without working.”

“Has someone or something pushed your anxiety button? Answer it with prayer!” 

Evinda Lepins


“Our prayers should be for blessings in general, for God knows best what is good for us.'” Moira smiled as she quoted the ancient sage, then shrugged. “It made sense to me.

Irene Hannon


“Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayer and worn with thanks.” 

Thomas Goodwin


“Let us never forget to pray. God lives. He is near. He is real. He is not only aware of us but cares for us. He is our Father. He is accessible to all who will seek Him.” 

Gordon B. Hinckley


“He who kneels the most, stands the best.” 

D.L. Moody


“In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”

 John Bunyan


“That is to say, I pray for you. And there’s an intimacy in it. That’s the truth.” 

Marilynne Robinson


“We tend to use prayer as a last resort, but God wants it to be our first line of defense. We pray when there’s nothing else we can do, but God wants us to pray before we do anything at all.

Most of us would prefer, however, to spend our time doing something that will get immediate results. We don’t want to wait for God to resolve matters in His good time because His idea of ‘good time’ is seldom in sync with ours.” 

Oswald Chambers


“In the silence of the heart God speaks. If you face God in prayer and silence, God will speak to you. Then you will know that you are nothing. It is only when you realize your nothingness, your emptiness, that God can fill you with Himself. Souls of prayer are souls of great silence.” 

Mother Teresa


“Go where your best prayers take you.” 

Frederick Buechner


“Prayer may just be the most powerful tool mankind has.”

Ted Dekker


“When you have reached your own room, be kind to those who have chosen different doors and to those who are still in the hall. If they are wrong they need your prayers all the more; and if they are your enemies, then you are under orders to pray for them. That is one of the rules common to the whole house.” 

C.S. Lewis


“… Goals not bathed in prayer or brought in humility before the Lord turn out to be downright useless. They don’t go anywhere. They don’t accomplish anything.”

Dieter F. Uchtdorf


“Be not forgetful of prayer. Every time you pray, if your prayer is sincere, there will be new feeling and new meaning in it, which will give you fresh courage, and you will understand that prayer is an education.” 

Fyodor Dostoevsky

“Do not suppose that the Gospel is magnified or God glorified by going to the worldlings and telling them that they may be saved at this moment by simply accepting Christ as their Savior, while they are wedded to their idols, and their hearts are still in love with sin.

Should Forgiveness Of Sins Go With Repentance – Spiritual Reading

Should Forgiveness Of Sins Go With Repentance - Spiritual Reading Blog Post Banner Image

Should Forgiveness Of Sins Go With Repentance – Spiritual Reading.



It is Clear from the text which we have lately quoted that repentance is bound up with the forgiveness of sins. In Acts 5:31 we read that Jesus is “exalted to give repentance and forgiveness of sins.” These two blessings come from that sacred hand which once was nailed to the tree, but is now raised to glory. Repentance and forgiveness are riveted together by the eternal purpose of God. What God hath joined together let no man put asunder.



Repentance must go with remission, and you will see that it is so if you think a little upon the matter. It cannot be that pardon of sin should be given to an impenitent sinner; this were to confirm him in his evil ways, and to teach him to think little of evil. If the Lord were to say, “You love sin, and live in it, and you are going on from bad to worse, but, all the same, I forgive you,” this were to proclaim a horrible license for iniquity.


The foundations of social order would be removed, and moral anarchy would follow. I cannot tell what innumerable mischiefs would certainly occur if you could divide repentance and forgiveness, and pass by the sin while the sinner remained as fond of it as ever. In the very nature of things, if we believe in the holiness of God, it must be so, that if we continue in our sin, and will not repent of it, we cannot be forgiven, but must reap the consequence of our obstinacy.


According to the infinite goodness of God, we are promised that if we will forsake our sins, confessing them, and will, by faith, accept the grace which is provided in Christ Jesus, God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


But, so long as God lives, there can be no promise of mercy to those who continue in their evil ways, and refuse to acknowledge their wrongdoing. Surely no rebel can expect the King to pardon his treason while he remains in open revolt. No one can be so foolish as to imagine that the Judge of all the earth will put away our sins if we refuse to put them away ourselves.


Moreover, it must be so for the completeness of divine mercy. That mercy which could forgive the sin and yet let the sinner live in it would be scant and superficial mercy. It would be unequal and deformed mercy, lame upon one of its feet, and withered as to one of its hands. Which, think you, is the greater privilege, cleansing from the guilt of sin, or deliverance from the power of sin?


I will not attempt to weigh in the scales two mercies so surpassing. Neither of them could have come to us apart from the precious blood of Jesus. But it seems to me that to be delivered from the dominion of sin, to be made holy, to be made like to God, must be reckoned the greater of the two, if a comparison has to be drawn. To be forgiven is an immeasurable favor.


We make this one of the first notes of our psalm of praise: “Who forgiveth all thine iniquities.” But if we could be forgiven, and then could be permitted to love sin, to riot in iniquity, and to wallow in lust, what would be the use of such a forgiveness? Might it not turn out to be a poisoned sweet, which would most effectually destroy us? To be washed, and yet to lie in the mire; to be pronounced clean, and yet to have the leprosy white on one’s brow, would be the veriest mockery of mercy.


What is it to bring the man out of his sepulcher if you leave him dead? Why lead him into the light if he is still blind? We thank God, that He who forgives our iniquities also heals our diseases. He who washes us from the stains of the past also uplifts us from the foul ways of the present, and keeps us from failing in the future. We must joyfully accept both repentance and remission; they cannot be separated. The covenant heritage is one and indivisible, and must not be parceled out. To divide the work of grace would be to cut the living child in halves, and those who would permit this have no interest in it.


I will ask you who are seeking the Lord, whether you would be satisfied with one of these mercies alone? Would it content you, my reader, if God would forgive you your sin and then allow you to be as worldly and wicked as before? Oh, no! The quickened spirit is more afraid of sin itself than of the penal results of it.


The cry of your heart is not, “Who shall deliver me from punishment?” but, “O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? Who shall enable me to live above temptation, and to become holy, even as God is holy?” Since the unity of repentance with remission agrees with gracious desire, and since it is necessary for the completeness of salvation, and for holiness’ sake, rest you sure that it abides.



Repentance and forgiveness are joined together in the experience of all believers. There never was a person yet who did unfeignedly repent of sin with believing repentance who was not forgiven; and on the other hand, there never was a person forgiven who had not repented of his sin. I do not hesitate to say that beneath the copes of Heaven there never was, there is not, and there never will be, any case of sin being washed away, unless at the same time the heart was led to repentance and faith in Christ. Hatred of sin and a sense of pardon come together into the soul, and abide together while we live.



These two things act and react upon each other: the man who is forgiven, therefore repents; and the man who repents is also most assuredly forgiven. Remember first, that forgiveness leads to repentance. As we sing in Hart’s words:



Law and terrors do but harden,
All the while they work alone;
But a sense of blood–bought pardon
Soon dissolves a heart of stone.



When we are sure that we are forgiven, then we abhor iniquity; and I suppose that when faith grows into full assurance, so that we are certain beyond a doubt that the blood of Jesus has washed us whiter than snow, it is then that repentance reaches to its greatest height. Repentance grows as faith grows. Do not make any mistake about it; repentance is not a thing of days and weeks, a temporary penance to be over as fast as possible! No; it is the grace of a lifetime, like faith itself.


God’s little children repent, and so do the young men and the fathers. Repentance is the inseparable companion of faith. All the while that we walk by faith and not by sight, the tear of repentance glitters in the eye of faith. That is not true repentance which does not come of faith in Jesus, and that is not true faith in Jesus which is not tinctured with repentance. Faith and repentance, like Siamese twins, are vitally joined together.


In proportion as we believe in the forgiving love of Christ, in that proportion we repent; and in proportion as we repent of sin and hate evil, we rejoice in the fullness of the absolution which Jesus is exalted to bestow. You will never value pardon unless you feel repentance ; and you will never taste the deepest draught of repentance until you know that you are pardoned. It may seem a strange thing, but so it is-the bitterness of repentance and the sweetness of pardon blend in the flavor of every gracious life, and make up an incomparable happiness.



These two covenant gifts are the mutual assurance of each other. If I know that I repent, I know that I am forgiven. How am I to know that I am forgiven except I know also that I am turned from my former sinful course? To be a believer is to be a penitent. Faith and repentance are but two spokes in the same wheel, two handles of the same plough.


Repentance has been well described as a heart broken for sin, and from sin; and it may equally well be spoken of as turning and returning. It is a change of mind of the most thorough and radical sort, and it is attended with sorrow for the past, and a resolve of amendment in the future.



Repentance is to leave
The sins we loved before;
And show that we in earnest grieve,
By doing so no more.



Now, when that is the case, we may be certain that we are forgiven; for the Lord never made a heart to be broken for sin and broken from sin, without pardoning it. If, on the other hand, we are enjoying pardon, through the blood of Jesus, and are justified by faith, and have peace with God, through Jesus Christ our Lord, we know that our repentance and faith are of the right sort.



Do not regard your repentance as the cause of your remission, but as the companion of it. Do not expect to be able to repent until you see the grace of our Lord Jesus, and His readiness to blot out your sin. Keep these blessed things in their places, and view them in their relation to each other. They are the Jachin and Boaz of a saving experience; I mean that they are comparable to Solomon’s two great pillars which stood in the forefront of the house of the Lord, and formed a majestic entrance to the holy place.


No man comes to God aright except he passes between the pillars of repentance and remission. Upon your heart the rainbow of covenant grace has been displayed in all its beauty when the tear–drops of repentance have been shone upon by the light of full forgiveness. Repentance of sin and faith in divine pardon are the warp and woof of the fabric of real conversion. By these tokens shall you know an Israelite indeed.



To come back to the Scripture upon which we are meditating: both forgiveness and repentance flow from the same source, and are given by the same Saviour. The Lord Jesus in His glory bestows both upon the same persons. You are neither to find the remission nor the repentance elsewhere. Jesus has both ready, and He is prepared to bestow them now, and to bestow them most freely on all who will accept them at His hands.


Let it never be forgotten that Jesus gives all that is needful for our salvation. It is highly important that all seekers after mercy should remember this. Faith is as much the gift of God as is the Saviour upon whom that faith relies. Repentance of sin is as truly the work of grace as the making of an atonement by which sin is blotted out. Salvation, from first to last, is of grace alone. You will not misunderstand me.


It is not the Holy Spirit who repents. He has never done anything for which He should repent. If He could repent, it would not meet the case; we must ourselves repent of our own sin, or we are not saved from its power. It is not the Lord Jesus Christ who repents. What should He repent of? We ourselves repent with the full consent of every faculty of our mind.


The will, the affections, the emotions, all work together most heartily in the blessed act of repentance for sin; and yet at the back of all that is our personal act, there is a secret holy influence which melts the heart, gives contrition, and produces a complete change. The Spirit of God enlightens us to see what sin is, and thus makes it loathsome in our eyes.


The Spirit of God also turns us toward holiness, makes us heartily to appreciate, love, and desire it, and thus gives us the impetus by which we are led onward from stage to stage of sanctification. The Spirit of God works in us to will and to do according to God’s good pleasure. To that good Spirit let us submit ourselves at once, that He may lead us to Jesus, who will freely give us the double benediction of repentance and remission, according to the riches of His grace.
“By grace are ye saved.”

“Philosophy and science have not always been friendly toward the idea of God, the reason being they are dedicated to the task of accounting for things and are impatient with anything that refuses to give an account of itself.

“Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow.

“There is today no lack of Bible teachers to set forth correctly the principles of the doctrines of Christ, but too many of these seem satisfied to teach the fundamentals of the faith year after year, strangely unaware that there is in their ministry no manifest Presence, nor anything unusual in their personal lives. They minister constantly to believers who feel within their breasts a longing which their teaching simply does not satisfy.”

“The man who has God for his treasure has all things in one.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“For this reason the gravest question before the Church is always God Himself, and the most portentous fact about any man is not what he at a given time may say or do, but what he in his deep heart conceives God to be like. We tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward our mental image of God. This is true not only of the individual Christian, but of the company of Christians that composes the Church. Always the most revealing thing about the Church is her idea of God, just as her most significant message is what she says about Him or leaves unsaid, for her silence is often more eloquent than her speech.”

“Always, everywhere God is present, and always He seeks to discover Himself to each one.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“The yearning to know what cannot be known, to comprehend the incomprehensible, to touch and taste the unapproachable, arises from the image of God in the nature of man. Deep calleth unto deep, and though polluted and landlocked by the mighty disaster theologians call the Fall, the soul senses its origin and longs to return to its source.”

“Let every man abide in the calling wherein he is called and his work will be as sacred as the work of the ministry. It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular, it is why he does it.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Faith is the least self-regarding of the virtues. It is by its very nature scarcely conscious of its own existence. Like the eye which sees everything in front of it and never sees itself, faith is occupied with the Object upon which it rests and pays no attention to itself at all.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“The Bible is a whole series of highways, all leading toward God. And when the text has been illuminated and the believer of the text knows that God is the end toward which he is moving, then that man has real faith.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“It is God which worketh in you.” He needs no one, but when faith is present He works through anyone.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Faith is not a once-done act, but a continuous gaze of the heart at the Triune God.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“We now demand glamour and fast-flowing dramatic action. A generation of Christians reared among push buttons and automatic machines is impatient of slower and less direct methods of reaching their goals…The tragic results of this spirit all all about us: shallow lives, hollow religious philosophies…the glorification of men, trust is religious externalities….salesmanship methods, the mistaking of dynamic personality for the power of the Spirit. These and such of these are the symptoms of an evil disease.”

“We can never know who or what we are till we know at least something of what God is.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Whatever God felt about anything, He still feels. Whatever He thought about anyone, He still thinks. Whatever He approved, He still approves. Whatever He condemned, He still condemns. Today we have what they call the relativity of morals. But remember this God never changes. Holiness and righteousness are conformity to the will of God. And the will of God never changes for moral creatures.”

“We can be in our day what the heroes of faith were in their day – but remember at the time they didn’t know they were heroes.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“God never uses anyone greatly until He tests them deeply.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“True faith rests upon the character of God and asks no further proof than the moral perfections of the One who cannot lie.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Now, if faith is the gaze of the heart at God, and if this gaze is but the raising of the inward eyes to meet the all-seeing eyes of God, then it follows that it is one of the easiest things possible to do. It would be like God to make the most vital thing easy and place it within the range of possibility for the weakest and poorest of us.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“The world is perishing for lack of the knowledge of God and the Church is famishing for want of His Presence.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“God must do everything for us. Our part is to yield and trust.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Jesus Christ came not to condemn you but to save you, knowing your name, knowing all about you, knowing your weight right now, knowing your age, knowing what you do, knowing where you live, knowing what you ate for supper and what you will eat for breakfast, where you will sleep tonight, how much your clothing cost, who your parents were. He knows you individually as though there were not another person in the entire world. He died for you as certainly as if you had been the only lost one. He knows the worst about you and is the One who loves you the most. “

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Faith creates nothing; it simply reckons upon that which is already there.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“The man that believes will obey; failure to obey is convincing proof that there is not true faith present. To attempt the impossible God must give faith or there will be none, and He gives faith to the obedient heart only. Where real repentance is, there is obedience; for repentance is not only sorrow for past failures and sins, it is a determination to begin now to do the will of God as He reveals it to us.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“If you are out of the fold and away from God, put your name in the words of John 3:16 and say, “Lord, it is I. I’m the cause and reason why Thou didst on earth come to die.” That kind of positive, personal faith and a personal Redeemer is what saves you. If you will just rush in there, you do not have to know all the theology and all the right words. You can say, “I am the one He came to die for.” Write it down in your heart and say, “Jesus, this is me—Thee and me,” as though there were no others. Have that kind of personalized belief in a personal Lord and Savior.”

Is It True That The Bible Is The Word Of God – Spiritual Reading

Is It True That The Bible Is The Word Of God - Spiritual Reading Blog Post Banner Image

Is It True That The Bible Is The Word Of God – Spiritual Reading.



The thing that the Bible teaches concerning the extent of the inspiration of its writings is that because of this inspiration of Prophets and Apostles, the writers of the Bible, the whole Bible as originally given becomes the absolutely inerrant Word of God.


In the O. T. David says of his own writings, in 2 Sam. 23:2, a passage already referred to, “The Spirit of Jehovah spake by me, and His Word was upon my tongue.” In Mark 7:13 Our Lord Jesus Himself calls the law of Moses “the Word of God.” He says “making void the Word of God by your tradition, which ye have delivered.” 


In the verses immediately preceding, He has been drawing a contrast between the teachings of the Mosaic law (not merely the teachings of the Ten Commandments, but other parts of the Mosaic law as well) and the traditions of the Scribes and Pharisees, and has shown how the traditions of the Scribes and Pharisees flatly contradicted the requirements of the law as given through Moses, and in summing up the matter he says in the verse just quoted, that the Scribes and Pharisees made void “the Word of God” by their traditions, thus calling the law of Moses “the Word of God.”


When I was in England a high dignitary and scholar in the Church of England in a private correspondence tried to call me down by saying that the Bible nowhere claimed to be “the Word of God,” but I replied to him by showing [him that not only did the Bible claim it, but that the Lord Jesus Himself said in so many words that the law given through Moses was “the Word of God.”


In 1 Thess. 2:13 the Apostle Paul claims that his own epistles and teachings are “the Word of God.” He says: “And for this cause we also thank God without ceasing, that when ye received from us the word of the message, even the word of God, ye accepted it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also worketh in you that believe.” 


Here the Apostle Paul claims for his own teaching in the most absolute way that the message that he gave was “the Word of God.” When we read the words that Jeremiah wrote and Isaiah wrote and Paul wrote and John wrote and James wrote and Jude wrote and the other Bible writers wrote, we are reading what God says.


We are not listening to the voice of man, but we are listening to the voice of God. “The Word of God” which we have in the Old and New Testaments, as originally given, is absolutely inerrant down to the smallest word and smallest letter or part of a letter. Our Lord Jesus Himself says of the Pentateuch in Matt. 5:18: “For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law till all things be accomplished.” 


Now a “jot” is the Hebrew character “yodh,” the smallest character in the Hebrew alphabet, less than half the size of any other letter in the Hebrew alphabet, and a “tittle” is a part of a letter, the little horn put on some of the Hebrew consonants, less than the cross we put on a “t,” and here our Lord says that the law given through Moses was absolutely inerrant, down to its smallest letter or part of a letter.


That certainly is verbal inspiration with a vengeance. Again he said, as recorded in John 10:35, after having quoted from the 82nd Psalm and the 6th verse, as conclusive proof of a point, “The Scripture CANNOT BE BROKEN,” thus asserting the absolute irrefragability or inerrancy and finality of the Scriptures. If the Scriptures as originally given were not the inerrant Word of God, then not only is the Bible a fraud, but Jesus Christ Himself was utterly misled and is therefore utterly unreliable as a teacher.


I have said that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as originally given were absolutely inerrant, and the question of course arises to what extent is the Authorized Version, or the Revised Version, the inerrant Word of God. The answer is simple; they are the inerrant Word of God just to that extent that they are an accurate rendering of the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as originally given, and to all practical intents and purposes they are a thoroughly accurate rendering of the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as originally given.


There are, it is true, many variations in the many manuscripts we possess, thousands of variations, but by a careful study of these very variations, we are able to find with marvellous accuracy what the original manuscripts said. A very large share of the variations are of no value whatever, as it is evident from a comparison of different manuscripts that they are mistakes of a transcriber.


Many other variations simply concern the order of the words used, and in translating into English, in which the order of words is often different from what it is in the Greek, the variation is not translatable. Many other variations are of small Greek particles, many of which are not translatable into English any way.


When all the variations of any significance have been reduced to the minimum to which it is possible to reduce them by a careful study of manuscripts, there is not one single variation left that affects any doctrine held by the evangelical churches, and the Scriptures as we have them to-day translated into our English language, either in the A. V. or R. V., are to all practical intents and purposes the inerrant Word of God.

Dwight L. Moody


“There is no better evangelist in the world than the Holy Spirit.”

Dwight L. Moody


“God will honor our faith.”

Dwight L. Moody


“No man ever sought Christ with a heart to find Him who did not find Him.”

Dwight L. Moody


“In Proverbs we read: ‘He that winneth souls is wise.’ If any man, women, or child by a godly life and example can win one soul to God, his life will not have been a failure. He will have outshone all the mighty men of his day, because he will have set a stream in motion that will flow on and on forever and ever.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Christians should live in the world, but not be filled with it. A ship lives in the water; but if the water gets into the ship, she goes to the bottom. So Christians may live in the world; but if the world gets into them, they sink.”

Dwight L. Moody

“Excuses are the cradle … that Satan rocks men off to sleep in.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Happiness is caused by things that happen around me, and circumstances will mar it; but joy flows right on through trouble; joy flows in the night as well as in the day; joy flows through persecution and opposition. It is an unceasing fountain bubbling up in the heart; a secret spring the world can’t see and doesn’t know anything about.”

Dwight L. Moody


“If I take care of my character, my reputation will take care of me.”

Dwight L. Moody


“It is a good deal better to have life in Christ and God than any where else. I would rather have my life hid with Christ in God than be in Eden as Adam was. Adam might have remained in Paradise for 16,000 years, and then fallen, but if ours is hid in Christ, how safe!”

Dwight L. Moody


“Faith is an outward look, not an inward look.”

Dwight L. Moody


“When a man is not deeply convicted of sin, it is a pretty sure sign that he has not truly repented. Experience has taught me that men who have very slight conviction of sin sooner or later lapse back into their old life.”

Dwight L. Moody


“God doesn’t seek for golden vessels, and does not ask for silver ones, but He must have clean ones.”

Dwight L. Moody


“I find that many Christians are in trouble about the future; they think they will not have grace enough to die by. It is much more important that we should have grace enough to live by. It seems to me that death is of very little importance in the meantime. When the dying hour comes, there will be dying grace; but you do not require dying grace to live by.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Our Faith must be tested. God builds no ships but what He sends to sea.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Earth recedes….Heav en opens before me.”

Dwight L. Moody


“God commands us to be filled with the Spirit, and if we are not filled, it is because we are living beneath our privileges.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Ministry need not be an office; it’s a lifestyle devoted to attracting the lost to Christ and encouraging other believers in the faith.”

Dwight L. Moody


“A Christian in the world is one thing, and the world in a Christian is quite another thing. A ship in the water is all right, but when the water gets in the ship, it is quite a different thing.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The Scriptures were not given to increase our knowledge, but to change our lives.”

Dwight L. Moody


“I am glad there are things in the Bible I do not understand. If I could take that book up and read it as I would any other book, I might think I could write a book like that.”

Dwight L. Moody


“I believe hundreds of Christian people are being deceived by Satan now on this point, that they have not got the assurance of salvation just because they are not willing to take God at His word.”

Dwight L. Moody


‘The tendency of the world is down – God’s path is up.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Moses spent forty years thinking he was somebody; forty years learning he was nobody; and forty years discovering what God can do with a nobody.”

Dwight L. Moody


“God doesn’t expect the impossible from us. He wants us to expect the impossible from Him!”

Dwight L. Moody


“God stands in no need of our strength or wisdom, but of our ignorance, of our weakness; let us but give these to Him, and He can make use of us in winning souls.”

Dwight L. Moody


“I have never met a man who has given me as much trouble as myself.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The man that is popular with the world is not a friend of Jesus. You cannot serve two masters. The world hates Christ, and if you are a friend of the world you cannot be a friend of His. You may be sure that something is wrong with you when everybody is your friend.”

Dwight L. Moody


“If our circumstances find us in God, we shall find God in all our circumstances.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The law stops every man’s mouth. God will have a man humble himself down on his face before Him, with not a word to say for himself. Then God will speak to him, when he owns that he is a sinner, and gets rid of all his own righteousness.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Light for every darkness, life in death, the promise of our Lord’s return, and the assurance of everlasting glory.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Would you be free from the condemnation of the sins that are past, from the power of the temptations that are to come? Then take your stand on the Rock of Ages. Let death, let the grave, let the judgment come, the victory is Christ’s and yours through Him.”

Dwight L. Moody


“A man to be converted has to give up his will, his ways, and his thoughts.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Dr. Bonar once said that he could tell when a Christian was growing. In proportion to his growth in grace he would elevate his Master, talk less of what he himself was doing, and become smaller and smaller in his own esteem, until, like the morning star, he faded away before the rising sun.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The Bible was not given for our information but for our transformation.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Temptations are like tramps. Treat them kindly, and they will return bringing others with them. Temptations are never so dangerous as when they come to us in a religious garb.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Man is born with his face turned away from God. When he truly repents, he is turned right round toward God; he leaves his old life.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The moral man is as guilty as the rest. His morality cannot save him.”

Dwight L. Moody


“My friends, look to Christ, and not to yourselves. That is what is the matter with a great many sinners; instead of looking to Christ, they are looking at the bite of sin.”

Dwight L. Moody


“We may easily be too big for God to use, but never too small.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Give your life to God; he can do more with it than you can.”

Dwight L. Moody


“God will not accept a divided heart. He must be absolute monarch. There is not room in your heart for two thrones. You cannot mix the worship of the true God with the worship of any other god more than you can mix oil and water. It cannot be done. There is not room for any other throne in the heart if Christ is there. If worldliness should come in, godliness would go out.”

“I cannot convert men; I can only proclaim the Gospel.”

“Some say if only my fears and doubts will leave then I will get to work. But instead you should get to work and then your fears and doubts will leave.”

Dwight L. Moody

Dwight L. Moody


“The Bible will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from the Bible.”

Dwight L. Moody


“We talk about heaven being so far away. It is within speaking distance to those who belong there. Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people.”

Dwight L. Moody


“When I first became a Christian I thought I would be glad when I got farther on, and got established. I thought I would be so strong and there would not be any danger; but the longer I live, the more danger I see there is. The only hope of any Christian…is to keep hold of Christ.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Out of 100 men, one will read the Bible, the other 99 will read the Christian.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Use me then, my Saviour for whatever purpose and whatever way thou mayest require. Here is my poor heart, and empty vessel; fill it with Thy Grace.”

Dwight L. Moody


“I look upon this world as a wrecked vessel. God has given me a lifeboat and said, ‘Moody, save all you can.”

Dwight L. Moody


“What we want is men with a little courage to stand up for Christ. When Christianity wakes up, and every child that belongs to the Lord is willing to speak for Him, is willing to work for Him, and, if need be, willing to die for Him, then Christianity will advance, and we shall see the work of the Lord prosper.”

Dwight L. Moody


“To be tempted is not to sin. The strongest attacks are made on the strongest forts.”

Dwight L. Moody


“I believe the religion of Christ covers the whole man. Why shouldn’t a man play baseball or lawn-tennis? … Don’t imagine that you have got to go into a cave to be consecrated, and stay there all your life. Whatever you take up, take it up with all your heart.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Everybody wants to enjoy heaven after they die, but they don’t want to be heavenly-minded while they live.”

Dwight L. Moody


“God has called us to SHINE, just as much as Daniel was sent into Babylon to shine. Let no one say that he cannot shine because he has not so much influence as some others may have. What God wants YOU to do is to use the influence YOU have. Daniel probably did not have much influence down in Babylon at first, but God soon gave him more because he was FAITHFUL and used what he had.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The Lord gives his people perpetual joy when they walk in obedience to him.”

Dwight L. Moody


“If I walk with the world, I can’t walk with God.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The difference between listening to a radio sermon and going to church…is almost like the difference between calling your girl on the phone and spending an evening with her.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Faith makes all things possible… love makes all things easy.”

Dwight L. Moody


“I thought when I became a Christian I had nothing to do but just to lay my oars in the bottom of the boat and float along. But I soon found that I would have to go against the current.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Every true work of God has had its bitter enemies – not only outside, but also inside – just as in the days of Nehemiah.”

Dwight L. Moody


“I hunted all through the four Gospels trying to find one of Christ’s funeral sermons, but I couldn’t find any. I found He broke up every funeral He ever attended! Death couldn’t exist where He was.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Be humble, or you’ll stumble.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The work of the Spirit is to impart life, to implant hope, to give liberty, to testify of Christ, to guide us into all truth, to teach us all things, to comfort the believer, and to convict the world of sin.”

Dwight L. Moody


“There is no greater honour than to be the instrument in God’s hands of leading one person out of the kingdom of Satan into the glorious light of Heaven.”

Dwight L. Moody


“There is no use in running before you are sent; there is no use in attempting to do God’s work without God’s power. A man working without this unction, a man working without this anointing, a man working without the Holy Ghost upon him, is losing time after all.”

Dwight L. Moody


“It is our privilege to know that we are saved.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The best definition I can find of faith is the dependence upon the veracity of another. The Bible definition in the 11th chapter of Hebrews is, ‘Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.’ In other words, faith says amen to everything that God says. Faith takes God without any ifs, If God says it, Faith says I believe it; Faith says amen to it.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Those who say they will forgive but can’t forget, simply bury the hatchet but leave the handle out for immediate use.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The best way to show that a stick is crooked is not to argue about it or to spend time denouncing it, but to lay a straight stick alongside it.”

Dwight L. Moody


“A man can no more take in a supply of grace for the future than he can eat enough today to last him for the next 6 months, nor can he inhale sufficient air into his lungs with one breath to sustain life for a week to come. We are permitted to draw upon God’s store of grace from day to day as we need it.”

Dwight L. Moody


“I have come a hundred miles,” said a minister, “to get some of Mr. Moody’s spirit.” ” You don’t want my spirit,” was the reply. “What you want is the Spirit of God.”

Dwight L. Moody


“It is clear you don’t like my way of doing evangelism. You raise some good points. Frankly, I sometimes do not like my way of doing evangelism. But I like my way of doing it better than your way of not doing it.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Real true faith is man’s weakness leaning on God’s strength.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God’ (Rom. 10:17). That is whence faith comes. It is not for me to sit down and wait for faith to come stealing over me with a strong sensation, but is for me to take God at His Word.”

Dwight L. Moody


“If God did not want us to understand the book of Revelation, He would not have given it to us at all.”

Dwight L. Moody


“It is a masterpiece of the devil to make us believe that children cannot understand religion. Would Christ have made a child the standard of faith if He had known that it was not capable of understanding His words?”

Dwight L. Moody


“There cannot be any peace where there is uncertainty.”

Dwight L. Moody


“If God tells us to do a thing we are to do it; if He tells us to believe a thing, we are to believe it; we are to have faith in God. Have faith in God, and if God tells you to believe a thing believe it, and then you will have peace and confidence and joy.”

Dwight L. Moody


“God has cast our confessed sins into the depths of the sea, and He’s even put a ‘No Fishing’ sign over the spot.”

Dwight L. Moody


“There are many of us that are willing to do great things for the Lord, but few of us are willing to do little things.”

Dwight L. Moody

Dwight L. Moody


“Some day you will read in the papers that D.L. Moody of East Northfield, is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it! At that moment I shall be more alive than I am now; I shall have gone up higher, that is all, out of this old clay tenement into a house that is immortal-a body that death cannot touch, that sin cannot taint; a body fashioned like unto His glorious body.”

Dwight L. Moody


“No one can sum up all God is able to accomplish through one solitary life, wholly yielded, adjusted, and obedient to Him.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The best way to revive a church is to build a fire in the pulpit.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Is there any reason why you should not have faith in God? Has God ever broken one of His promises? I defy any infidel or unbeliever to place a finger on a single promise of God ever made and failed to fulfill.”

Dwight L. Moody


“It is better to be a little too strict than too liberal.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The valley of the shadow of death holds no darkness for the child of God. There must be light, else there could be no shadow. Jesus is the light. He has overcome death.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Satan is willing to have us worship anything, however sacred – the Bible, the crucifix, the church – if only we do not worship God Himself.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Let us expect that God is going to use us. Let us have courage and go forward, looking to God to do great things.”

Dwight L. Moody


“No man can resolve himself into Heaven.”

Dwight L. Moody

Dwight L. Moody


“It is the only happy life to live for the salvation of souls.”

Dwight L. Moody


“If you were to spend a month feeding on the precious promises of God, you would not be going about with your heads hanging down like bulrushes, complaining how poor you are; but you would lift up your heads with confidence, and proclaim the riches of His grace because you could not help it.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Earth recedes, Heaven opens before me. If this is death, it is sweet! There is no valley here. God is calling me, and I must go.”

Dwight L. Moody


“A great many people are trying to make peace, but that has already been done. God has not left it for us to do; all we have to do is to enter into it.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Character is what a man is in the dark.”

Dwight L. Moody


“This lost world will never be reached and brought back to loyalty to God, until the children of God wake up to the fact that they have a mission in the world. If we are true Christians we should all be missionaries.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Faith gives us living joy and dying rest.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Trust in yourself and you are doomed to disappointment; trust in money and you may have it taken from you, but trust in God, and you are never to be confounded in time or eternity.”

Dwight L. Moody


“David was the last one we would have chosen to fight the giant, but he was chosen of God.”

Dwight L. Moody


“When God wants to move a mountain, he does not take a bar of iron, but he takes a little worm. The fact is, we have too much strength. We are not weak enough. It is not our strength that we want. One drop of God’s strength is worth more than all the world.”

Dwight L. Moody


“A holy life will produce the deepest impression. Lighthouses blow no horns; they only shine.”

Dwight L. Moody


“I’d rather get ten men to do the job than to do the job of ten men.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Every one ought to study the Bible with two ends in view: his own growth in knowledge and grace, and passing it on to others. We ought to have four ears,- two for ourselves, and two for other people. My Bible is worth a good deal to me because I have so many passages marked that, if I am called upon to speak at any time, I am ready. We ought to be prepared to pass around heavenly thoughts and truths, just as we do the coin of the realm.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Small numbers make no difference to God. There is nothing small if God is in it.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Verily I say unto you, he that heareth my word and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation, but is passed from death unto life.” My friend, that is worth more than all the feeling you can have in a life-time.”

Dwight L. Moody


“You might as well try to hear without ears or breathe without lungs, as to try to live a Christian life without the Spirit of God in your heart.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Many of the Bible characters fell just in the things in which they were thought to be strongest. Moses failed in his humility, Abraham in his faith, Elijah in his courage, for one woman scared him away to that juniper-tree; and Peter, whose strong point was boldness, was so frightened by a maid, as to deny his Lord.”

Dwight L. Moody


“When a man is filled with the Word of God you cannot keep him still, If a man has got the Word, he must speak or die.”

Dwight L. Moody


“If God has given you a message, go and give it to the people as God has given it to you. It is a stupid thing to try to be eloquent.”

Dwight L. Moody


“If we have Christ with us, we can do all things. Let us not be thinking how weak we are. Let us lift up our eyes to Him and think of Him as our Elder Brother who has all power given to Him in Heaven and on earth. He says, ‘Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.”

Dwight L. Moody


“If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry to reaching children for God!”

Dwight L. Moody


“I am walking toward a bright light and the nearer I get the brighter it is.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Salvation is worth working for. It is worth a man’s going round the world on his hands and knees, climbing its mountains, crossing its valleys, swimming its rivers, going through all manner of hardship in order to attain it. But we do not get it in that way. It is to him who believes.”

Dwight L. Moody


“When we find a man meditating on the words of God, my friends, that man is full of boldness and is successful.”

Dwight L. Moody


“You cannot find, I believe, a case in the Bible where a man is converted without God’s calling in some human agency–using some human instrument.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The best work usually meets the strongest opposition.”

Dwight L. Moody


“If Jesus bore the cross, and died on it for me, ought I not to be willing to take it up for Him?”

Dwight L. Moody


“He is the Rock, His work is perfect: For all His ways are judgment: A God of truth and without iniquity, Just and right is He.”

Dwight L. Moody


“There is the joy of one’s own salvation. I thought, when I first tasted that, it was the most delicious joy I had ever known, and that I could never get beyond it. But I found, afterward, there was something more joyful that, namely, the joy of the salvation of others.”

Dwight L. Moody


“I never saw a fruit-bearing Christian who was not a student of the Bible.”

Dwight L. Moody


“When a man gets up so high (spiritual mountaintop) that he cannot reach down and save poor sinners, there is something wrong.”

Dwight L. Moody


“God had one Son without sin, but He never had a son without trial.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The resurrection is the keystone of the arch on which our faith is supported. If Christ has not risen, we must impeach all those witnesses for lying. If Christ has not risen, we have no proof that the crucifixion of Jesus differed from that of the two thieves who suffered with him. If Christ has not risen, it is impossible to believe his atoning death was accepted.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The grand question of life is, Is my name written in heaven?”

Dwight L. Moody


“The Son of God passed by the mansions and went down in a manger that He might sympathize with the lowly.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Seeking to perpetuate one’s name on earth is like writing on the sand by the seashore; to be perpetual it must be written on eternal shores.”

Dwight L. Moody


“I believe Satan exists for two reasons: first, the Bible says so, and second, I’ve done business with him.”

Dwight L. Moody


“How easy it is to work for God when we are filled with His Spirit! His service is so sweet, so delightful; He is not a hard master. People talk about their being overworked and breaking down. It is not so. It is [over-worry] and care that wears people out.
Why do so many workers break down? Not from overwork, but because there has been friction of the machinery; there hasn’t been enough of the oil of the Spirit. Great engines have their machinery so arranged that where there is friction there is oil dropping on it all the time. It is a good thing for Christians to have plenty of oil.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The Bible without the Holy Spirit is a sundial by moonlight.”

Dwight L. Moody


“As a dead man cannot inherit an estate, no more can a dead soul inherit heaven. The soul must be resurrected in Christ.”

Dwight L. Moody


“If a man gets drunk and goes out and breaks his leg so that it must be amputated, God will forgive him if he asks it, but he will have to hop around on one leg all his life.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Remember, a small light will do a great deal when it is in a very dark place. Put one little tallow in the middle of a large hall, and it will give a good deal of light.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The monument I want after I am dead is a monument with two legs going around the world-a saved sinner telling about the salvation of Jesus Christ.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Attitudes determine our actions, for good or bad.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The first thing a man must do if he desires to be used in the Lord’s work, is to make an unconditional surrender of himself to God.”

Dwight L. Moody


“There is no harder lesson for man to learn than the lesson of humility. It is the rarest of all gifts. It is a very rare thing to find a man or woman that is following closely the footsteps of the Master in meekness and humility.”

Dwight L. Moody


“I know the Bible is inspired because it inspires me.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Christ came down to save us from a terrible hell, and any man who is cast down to hell from here must go in the full blaze of the gospel, and over the mangled body of the Son of God.”

Dwight L. Moody


“What we need as Christians is to be able to feed ourselves. How many there are who sit helpless and listless, with open mouths, hungry for spiritual things, and the minister has to try to feed them, while the Bible is a feast prepared, into which they never venture.”

Dwight L. Moody


“Life is very sweet to me, and there is no position of power or wealth that could tempt me from the throne God has given me.”

Dwight L. Moody


“It is a favorite thing with infidels to set their own standard, to measure themselves by other people. But that will not do in the Day of Judgment. Now we will use God’s law as a balance weight.”

Dwight L. Moody


“He that overcometh shall inherit all things. God has no poor children.”

Dwight L. Moody


“It is the greatest pleasure of living to win souls to Christ.”

Dwight L. Moody


“The trouble with a great many men is that they spread themselves out over too much ground. They fail in everything. If they would only put their life into one channel, and keep it in, they would accomplish something. They make no impression because they do a little work here and a little work there….Lay yourselves on the altar of God, and then concentrate on some one work.”

Dwight L. Moody

John Bunyan


“All that the Father giveth me SHALL COME… Here, therefore, the Lord Jesus positively determineth to put forth such a sufficiency of all grace as shall effectually perform this promise.

“Though the world disregard the society of God’s children now, yet there is a time coming in which they would be glad to have the least company with them.”

John Bunyan


“Dost thou understand me, sinful soul? He wrestled with justice, that thou mightest have rest; He wept and mourned, that thou mightest laugh and rejoice; He was betrayed, that thou mightest go free; was apprehended, that thou mightest escape; He was condemned, that thou mightest be justified; and was killed, that thou mightest live; He wore a crown of thorns, that thou mightest wear a crown of glory; and was nailed to the cross, with His arms wide open, to show with what freeness all His merits shall be bestowed on the coming soul; and how heartily He will receive it into His bosom?”

John Bunyan


“The man that takes up religion for the world will throw away religion for the world.”

John Bunyan


“The law, instead of cleansing the heart from sin, doth revive it, put strength into, and increase it in the soul, even as it doth discover and forbid it, for it doth not give power to subdue.”

John Bunyan


“Fear, lest, by forgetting what you are by nature, you also forget the need that you have of continual pardon, support, and supplies from the Spirit of grace, and so grow proud of your own abilities, or of what you have received from God.”

John Bunyan


“At the day of Doom men shall be judged according to their fruits. It will not be said then, did you believe? But, were you doers or talkers only?”

John Bunyan


“There is a warning here for true pilgrims. Beware of the talker, but also be careful not to judge too quickly those whom God has blessed with both genuine grace and a fluency to speak of divine mercy in ways more eloquent than others. The proof is in the life-not a perfect life, but a life that both delights in divine truth and magnifies God, the only giver of the sovereign grace that always produces the truly fruitful, fragrant life.”

John Bunyan


“He who runs from God in the morning will scarcely find Him the rest of the day.”

John Bunyan


“Man indeed is the most noble, by creation, of all the creatures in the visible World; but by sin he has made himself the most ignoble.”

John Bunyan


“Humility is the light of the understanding.”

John Bunyan


“As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place, where was a den; and I laid me down in that place to sleep: and as I slept I dreamed a dream. I dreamed, and behold I saw a man clothed with rags, standing in a certain place, with his face from his own house, a book in his hand, and a great burden upon his back. I looked, and saw him open the book, and read therein; and as he read, he wept and trembled: and not being able longer to contain, he brake out with a lamentable cry; saying, ‘What shall I do?'”

John Bunyan


“To seek yourself in this world is to be lost; and to be humble is to be exalted.”

John Bunyan


“He that comes to Christ cannot, it is true, always get on as fast as he would. Poor coming soul, thou art like the man that would ride full gallop whose horse will hardly trot. Now the desire of his mind is not to be judged of by the slow pace of the dull jade he rides on, but by the hitching and kicking and spurring as he sits on his back. Thy flesh is like this dull jade, it will not gallop after Christ, it will be backward though thy soul and heaven lie at stake.”

John Bunyan


“There is no way to kill a man’s righteousness but by his own consent.”

John Bunyan


“The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, and they that lack the beginning have neither middle nor end.”

John Bunyan


“Riches and power, what is there more in the world? For money answereth all things-that is, all but soul concerns. It can neither be a price for souls while here, nor can that, with all the forces of strength, recover one out of hell fire.”

John Bunyan


“It is profitable for Christians to be often calling to mind the very beginnings of grace with their souls.”

John Bunyan


“Though it be said that faith cometh by hearing, yet it is the Spirit that worketh faith in the heart through hearing, or else they are not profited by hearing.”

John Bunyan


“Run when I can, walk when I cannot run, and creep when I cannot walk.”

John Bunyan


“To lay hold of and receive the gospel by a true and saving faith is an act of the soul that has been made a new creature, which is the workmanship of God… Wherefore whoever receiveth the grace that is tendered in the gospel, they must be quickened by the power of God, their eyes must be opened, their understandings illuminated, their ears unstopped, their hearts circumcised, their wills also rectified, and the Son of God revealed in them.”

John Bunyan


“The man who does not know the nature of the Law, cannot know the nature of sin.”

John Bunyan


“Our sins, when laid upon Christ, were yet personally ours, not his; so his righteousness, when put upon us, is yet personally his, not ours.”

John Bunyan


“I will stay in prison till the moss grows on my eye lids rather than disobey God.”

John Bunyan


“Let dissolution come when it will, it can do the Christian no harm, for it will be but a passage out of a prison into a palace; out of a sea of troubles into a haven of rest; out of a crowd of enemies, to an innumerable company of true, loving, and faithful friends; out of shame, reproach, and contempt, into exceeding great and eternal glory.”

John Bunyan


“An idle man’s brain is the devil’s workshop.”

John Bunyan


“Doth Jesus Christ stand up to plead for us with God, to plead with him for us against the devil? Let this teach us to stand up to plead for him before men, to plead for him against the enemies of his person and gospel.”

John Bunyan


“Old truths are always new to us, if they come with the smell of heaven upon them.”

John Bunyan


“See how ye Pharisee in the Temple stands, And justifies himself with lifted hands. Whilst ye poor publican with downcast eyes, Conscious of guilt to God for mercy cries.”

John Bunyan


“This hill though high I covent ascend; The difficulty will not me offend; For I perceive the way of life lies here. Come, pluck up, heart; let’s neither faint nor fear.”

John Bunyan


“He that doth righteousness; that is, righteousness which the gospel calleth so, is righteous; that is, precedent to, or before he doth that righteousness. For he doth not say, he shall make his person righteous by acts of righteousness that he shall do; for then an evil tree may bear good fruit, yea, and make itself good by doing so; but he saith, He that doth righteousness is righteous; as he saith, He that doth righteousness is born of him.”

John Bunyan


“Words easy to be understood do often hit the mark, when high and learned ones do only pierce the air.”

John Bunyan


“It is sad to see how the most of men neglect their precious souls, turning their backs upon the glorious gospel, and little minding a crucified Jesus, when, in the meanwhile, their bodies are well provided for, their estates much regarded, and the things of this present life are highly prized, as if the darling was of less value than a clod of earth; an immortal soul, than a perishing body; a precious Saviour, than unsatisfying creatures.”

John Bunyan


“The road of denial leads to the precipice of destruction.”

John Bunyan


“He that is down needs fear no fall. He that is low, no pride; He that is humble, ever shall have God to be his Guide.”

John Bunyan


“The kingdom of heaven is for the heirs – and if children, then heirs; if born again, then heirs. Wherefore it is said expressly, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. By this one word, down goes all carnal privilege of being born of flesh and blood, and of the will of man. Canst thou produce the birthright?”

John Bunyan


“There can be but one will the master in our salvation, but that shall never be the will of man, but of God; therefore man must be saved by grace.”

John Bunyan


“If you release me today, I’ll preach tomorrow.”

John Bunyan


“Faith receiveth the promise, embraceth it, and comforteth the soul unspeakably with it. Faith is so great an artist in arguing and reasoning with the soul, that it will bring over the hardest heart that it hath to deal with. It will bring to my remembrance at once, both my vileness against God, and his goodness towards me; it will show me, that though I deserve not to breathe in the air, yet that God will have me an heir of glory.”

John Bunyan


“The spirit of prayer is more precious than treasures of gold and silver.”

John Bunyan


“Therefore, I bind these lies and slanderous accusations to my person as an ornament; it belongs to my Christian profession to be vilified, slandered, reproached and reviled, and since all this is nothing but that, as God and my conscience testify, I rejoice in being reproached for Christ’s sake.”

John Bunyan


“I will stay in jail to the end of my days before I make a butchery of my conscience.”

John Bunyan


“The greatness of God, of the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, is that, if rightly considered, which will support the spirits of those of his people that are frighted with the greatness of their adversaries.”

John Bunyan


“Humility is the light of understanding.”

John Bunyan


“Wherefore, though the Christian, as a Christian, is the only man at liberty, as called thereunto of God; yet his liberty is limited to things that are good: he is not licensed thereby to indulge the flesh.”

John Bunyan


“Grace can pardon our ungodliness and justify us with Christ’s righteousness; it can put the Spirit of Jesus Christ within us; it can help us when we are down; it can heal us when we are wounded; it can multiply pardons, as we through frailty multiply transgressions.”

John Bunyan


“Beware of resting in the word of the kingdom, without the spirit and power of the kingdom of that gospel, for the gospel coming in word only saves nobody, for the kingdom of God or the gospel, where it comes to salvation, is not in word but in power.”

John Bunyan


“I have often thought that the best Christians are found in the worst of times.”

John Bunyan


“Temptations, when we meet them at first, are as the lion that reared upon Samson; but if we overcome them, the next time we see them we shall find a nest of honey within them.”

John Bunyan


“Whatever contradicts the Word of God should be instantly resisted as diabolical.”

John Bunyan


“To run and work the law commands, but gives us neither feet nor hands. But better news the gospel brings, it bids us fly and gives us wings.”

John Bunyan


“It could be a sign of pride in your life if a word of reproof or admonition is not able to be received with the same grace, whether it be given by the poorest of saints or the most educated person.”

John Bunyan


“The Lord uses his flail of tribulation to separate the chaff from the wheat.”

John Bunyan


“Look how fears have presented themselves, so have supports and encouragements; yea, when I have started, even as it were at nothing else but my shadow, yet God, as being very tender of me, hath suffered me to be molested, but would with one Scripture or another, strengthen me against all; insomuch that I have often said, Were it awful, I could pray for greater trouble, for the greater comfort’s sake.”

John Bunyan


“The Swamp of Despond is that place set before the narrow gate where true and false pilgrims alike are assaulted by their own internal corruption and pollution. The dirt and scum that has attached itself to our hearts and minds is agitated and revealed by both the workings of a guilty conscience and the devouring avarice of the enemy of our souls.”

John Bunyan


“As your faith is, such your hope will be. Hope is never ill when faith is well, nor strong if faith be weak.”

John Bunyan


“I would say to my soul, O my soul, this is not the place of despair; this is not the time to despair in. As long as mine eyes can find a promise in the Bible, as long as there is a moment left me of breath or life in this world, so long will I wait or look for mercy, so long will I fight against unbelief and despair.”

John Bunyan


“Our heart oft times wakes when we sleep, and God can speak to that, either by words, by proverbs, by signs and similitudes, as well as if one was awake.”

John Bunyan


“One leak will sink a ship: and one sin will destroy a sinner.”

John Bunyan


“I saw, moreover, that it was not my good frame of heart that made my righteousness better, nor my bad frame that made my righteousness worse; for my righteousness was Jesus Christ himself, the same yesterday and today and forever.”

John Bunyan


“No child of God sins to that degree as to make himself incapable of forgiveness.”

John Bunyan


“If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the Man Christ without, and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the word of God.”

John Bunyan


“Men, even the elect, have too many infirmities to come to Christ without help from heaven; inviting will not do.”

John Bunyan


“Temptation provokes me to look upward to God.”

John Bunyan


“Such is the effect of the grace of God in the heart of a pilgrim; while on one hand he sees the propensity of his evil nature to every sin which has been committed by others, and is humbled; he also confesses, that, by no power of his own, is he preserved, but ever gives the glory to the God of all grace, by whose power alone he is kept from falling.”

John Bunyan


“He hath given me rest by His sorrow, and life by His death.”

John Bunyan


“It is possible to learn all about the mysteries of the Bible and never be affected by it in one’s soul. Great knowledge is not enough.”

John Bunyan


“Though there is not always grace where there is the fear of hell, yet, to be sure, there is no grace where there is no fear of God.”

John Bunyan


“Just as Christian came up to the Cross, his burden loosed from off his shoulders, fell from off his back, and began to tumble down the hill, and so it continued to do till it came to the mouth of the sepulchre. There it fell in, and I saw it no more!”

John Bunyan


“Sleep is sweet to the labouring man.”

John Bunyan


“God, as I may say, is forced to break men’s hearts, before he can make them willing to cry to him, or be willing that he should have any concerns with them; the rest shut their eyes, stop their ears, withdraw their hearts, or say unto God, Be gone.”

John Bunyan


“Faith is a fruit, work, or gift of the Spirit of God, whereby a poor soul is enabled through the mighty operation of God, in a sense of its sins and wretched estate to lay hold on the righteousness, blood, death, resurrection, ascension, intercession, and coming again of the Son of God which was crucified without the gates of Jerusalem, for eternal life.”

John Bunyan


“Then I saw that there was a way to hell, even from the gates of heaven.”

John Bunyan


“Then said he, ’I am going to my Father’s; and though with great difficulty I am got hither, yet now I do not repent me of all the trouble I have been at to arrive where I am. My sword I give to him that shall succeed me in my pilgrimage, and my courage and skill to him that can get it. My marks and scars I carry with me, to be a witness for me that I have fought His battles who now will be my rewarder.’…. So he passed over, and all the trumpets sounded for him on the other side.”

John Bunyan


“I have given Him my faith, and sworn my allegiance to Him; how, then, can I go back from this, and not be hanged as a traitor?”

John Bunyan


“The God in whose hands are all our days and ways, did cast into my hand (one day) a book of Martin Luther’s ; it was his Comment on the Galatians! … I found my condition in his experience so largely and profoundly handled, as if his book had been written out of my heart … I do prefer this book of Martin Luther upon the Galatians, excepting the Holy Bible, before all the books that ever I have seen, as most fit for a wounded conscience.”

Jesus, Faith, Christianity, Religion And Spirituality Quotes – John Wesley.


“God does not love men that are inconstant, nor good works that are intermitted. Nothing is pleasing to him, but what has a resemblance of his own immutability.”

John Wesley


“Faith is the divine evidence whereby the spiritual man discerneth God, and the things of God.”

John Wesley


“We should be continually laboring to cut off all the useless things that surround us; and God usually retrenches the superfluities of our souls in the same proportion as we do those of our bodies.”

John Wesley


“He who governed the world before I was born shall take care of it likewise when I am dead. My part is to improve the present moment.”

John Wesley


“If we suffer persecution and affliction in a right manner, we attain a larger measure of conformity to Christ, by a due improvement of one of these occasions, than we could have done merely by imitating his mercy, in abundance of good works.”

John Wesley


“The person who bears and suffers evils with meekness and silence, is the sum of a Christian man.”

John Wesley


“It is good to renew ourselves, from time to time, by closely examining the state of our souls, as if we had never done it before; for nothing tends more to the full assurance of faith, than to keep ourselves by this means in humility, and the exercise of all good works.”

John Wesley


“Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth.”

John Wesley


“As no good is done, or spoken, or thought by any man without the assistance of God, working in and with those that believe in him, so there is no evil done, or spoken, or thought without the assistance of the devil, who worketh with strong though secret power in the children of unbelief. All the works of our evil nature are the work of the devil.”

John Wesley


“I learned more about Christianity from my mother than from all the theologians in England.”

John Wesley


“I preached on the righteousness of the law and the righteousness of faith. While I was speaking, several dropped down as dead and among the rest such a cry was heard of sinners groaning for the righteousness of faith that it almost drowned my voice. But many of these soon lifted up their heads with joy and broke out into thanksgiving, being assured they now had the desire of their soul – the forgiveness of their sins.”

John Wesley


“There is no faithfulness like that which ought to be between a guide of souls and the person directed by him. They ought continually to regard each other in God, and closely to examine themselves, whether all their thoughts are pure, and all their words directed with Christian discretion. Other affairs are only the things of men; but these are peculiarly the things of God.”

John Wesley


“To abandon all, to strip one’s self of all, in order to seek and to follow Jesus Christ naked to Bethlehem, where he was born; naked to the hall where he was scourged; and naked to Calvary, where he died on the cross, is so great a mercy, that neither the thing, nor the knowledge of it is given to any, but through faith in the Son of God.”

John Wesley


“You have nothing to do but to save souls. Therefore spend and be spent in this work. And go not only to those that need you, but to those that need you most it is not your business to preach so many times, and to take care of this or that society; but to save as many souls as you can; to bring as many sinners as you possibly can to repentance.”

John Wesley


“And indeed, there is no little sin, because there is no little God to sin against. In general, what to (humans) seems a small offense, to Him who knows the heart may appear a heinous crime.”

John Wesley


“Once in seven years I burn all my sermons; for it is a shame, if I cannot write better sermons now than I did seven years ago.”

John Wesley


“One of the principal rules of religion is, to lose no occasion of serving God. And, since he is invisible to our eyes, we are to serve him in our neighbor; which he receives as if done to himself in person, standing visibly before us.”

John Wesley


“True humility is a kind of self-annihilation; and this is the centre of all virtues.”

John Wesley


“The sea is an excellent figure of the fullness of God, and that of the blessed Spirit. For as the rivers all return into the sea; so the bodies, the souls, and the good works of the righteous, return into God, to live there in his eternal repose.”

John Wesley


“If we were not utterly impotent, our good works would be our own property; whereas now they belong wholly to God, because they proceed from him and his grace: While raising our works and making them all divine, he honors himself in us through them.”

John Wesley


“The readiest way to escape from our sufferings is, to be willing they should endure as long as God pleases.”

John Wesley


“I want the whole Christ for my Savior, the whole Bible for my book, the whole Church for my fellowship and the whole world for my mission field.”

John Wesley


“Above all sing spiritually. Have an eye to God in every word you sing. Aim at pleasing him more than yourself, or any other creature. In order to do this attend strictly to the sense of what you sing, and see that your heart is not carried away with the sound, but offered to God continually; so shall your singing be such as the Lord will approve here, and reward you when he cometh in the clouds of heaven.”

John Wesley


“If, after having renounced all, we do not watch incessantly, and beseech God to accompany our vigilance with his, we shall be again entangled and overcome.”

John Wesley


“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to cast off his trust in riches.”

John Wesley


“Oh that God would give me the thing which I long for! That before I go hence and am no more seen, I may see a people wholly devoted to God, crucified to the world, and the world crucified to them. A people truly given up to God in body, soul and substance! How cheerfully would I then say, ‘Now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace.”

John Wesley


“As the most dangerous winds may enter at little openings, so the devil never enters more dangerously than by little unobserved incidents, which seem to be nothing, yet insensibly open the heart to great temptations.”

John Wesley


“Tell me how it is that in this room there are three candles and but one light, and I will explain to you the mode of the divine existence.”

John Wesley


“Bring me a worm that can comprehend a man, and then I will show you a man that can comprehend the Triune God.”

John Wesley


“The bottom of the soul may be in repose, even while we are in many outward troubles; just as the bottom of the sea is calm, while the surface is strongly agitated.”

John Wesley


“When a man becomes a Christian, he becomes industrious, trustworthy and prosperous. Now, if that man when he gets all he can and saves all he can does not give all he can, I have more hope for Judas Iscariot than for that man!”

John Wesley


“The first priority of my life is to be holy, and the second goal of my life is to be a scholar.”

John Wesley


“A constant attention to the work which God entrusts us with is a mark of solid piety.”

John Wesley


“The best helps to growth in grace are the ill usage, the affronts, and the losses which befall us. We should receive them with all thankfulness, as preferable to all others, were it only on this account, — that our will has no part therein.”

John Wesley


“It is hardly credible of how great consequence before God the smallest things are; and what great inconveniences sometimes follow those which appear to be light faults. As a very little dust will disorder a clock, and the least sand will obscure our sight, so the least grain of sin which is upon the heart will hinder its right motion towards God.”

John Wesley


“My fear is not that our great movement, known as the Methodists, will eventually cease to exist or one day die from the earth. My fear is that our people will become content to live without the fire, the power, the excitement, the supernatural element that makes us great.”

John Wesley


“God is so great, that he communicates greatness to the least thing that is done for his service.”

John Wesley


“We are to bear with those we cannot amend, and to be content with offering them to God. This is true resignation. And since He has borne our infirmities, we may well bear those of each other for His sake.”

John Wesley


“When I was young I was sure of everything; in a few years, having been mistaken a thousand times, I was not half so sure of most things as I was before; at present, I am hardly sure of anything but what God has revealed to me.”

John Wesley


“The words of St. Paul, ‘No man can call Jesus Lord, but by the Holy Ghost,’ show us the necessity of eyeing God in our good works, and even in our minutest thoughts; knowing that none are pleasing to him, but those which he forms in us and with us. From hence we learn that we cannot serve him, unless he use our tongue, hands, and heart, to do by himself and his Spirit whatever he would have us to do.”

John Wesley

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Groans that words cannot express are often prayers that God cannot refuse.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayer is never out of season: in summer and in winter its merchandize is precious. Prayer gains audience with heaven in the dead of night, in the midst of business, in the heat of noonday, in the shades of evening. In every condition, whether of poverty, or sickness, or obscurity, or slander, or doubt, your covenant God will welcome your prayer and answer it from His holy place.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Prayer is the best study. It blesses the pleading preacher and the people to whom he ministers.”

“Prayer must not be our chance work, but our daily business, our habit and vocation.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Words are not the essence but the garments of prayer.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“To us, at any rate, prayer is no vain thing. We go to our chambers alone, believing that we are transacting high and real business when we pray. We do not bow the knee merely because it is a duty, and a commendable spiritual exercise; but because we believe that, into the ear of the eternal God, we speak our wants, and that His ear is linked with a heart feeling for us, and a hand working on our behalf. To us, true prayer is true power.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

You have God’s Word for it—what more is needed? Cannot you take God’s Word? You can take your father’s word. You can take your mother’s word—why cannot you take God’s word? Oh, what base hearts we must have to suspect God Himself!”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayer without fervency is like hunting with a dead dog, and prayer without preparation is hawking with a blind falcon.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayers are instantly noticed in heaven. The moment Saul began to pray, the Lord heard him. Here is comfort for the distressed but praying soul. When our hearts are broken and we bow in prayer, we are often only able to employ the language of sighs and tears; still our groaning has made all the harps of heaven thrill with music. That tear has been caught by God and treasured in the receptacle of heaven. “Put my tears in your bottle”1 implies that they are caught as they flow.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayer is the natural out gushing of a soul in communion with Jesus. Just as the leaf and the fruit will come out of the vine-branch without any conscious effort on the part of the branch, but simply because of its living union with the stem, so prayer buds, and blossoms, and fruits out of souls abiding in Jesus.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“A sleepy prayer–what can make people more dislike going up to the house of God at all? Cast your whole soul into the exercise. If ever your whole manhood was engaged in anything., let it be in drawing near unto God in public.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“The best praying man is the man who is most believingly familiar with the promises of God. After all, prayer is nothing but taking God’s promises to him, and saying to him, “Do as thou hast said.” Prayer is the promise utilized. A prayer which is not based on a promise has no true foundation.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“When you cannot use your sword you may take to the weapon of all-prayer. Your powder may be damp, your bow-string may be relaxed, but the weapon of all-prayer need never be out of order.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

“Leviathan laughs at the javelin, but he trembles at prayer. Sword and spear need furbishing, but prayer never rusts, and when we think it most blunt it cuts the best. Prayer is an open door which none can shut. Devils may surround you on all sides, but the way upward is always open.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Have we this day grace enough to make trenches into which the divine blessing may flow? Alas! we too often fail in the exhibition of true and practical faith. Let us this day be on the outlook for answers to prayer. As the child who went to a meeting to pray for rain took an umbrella with her, so let us truly and practically expect the Lord to bless us. Let us make the valley full of ditches and expect to see them all filled.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Christ’s mighty prayers are as vocal to God as His daily services. He witnesses under all circumstances.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Try this receipt, O believer, whenever thou art sad of heart and in heaviness of spirit: forget thyself and thy little concerns, and seek the welfare and prosperity of Zion.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“If God be near a church, it must pray. And if he be not there, one of the first tokens of his absence will be a slothfulness in prayer.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“The minister is not always in the act of prayer, but he is always in the spirit of it.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“This is frequently the position of believers now — they are called to perils and temptations altogether untried: at such seasons let them imitate Jacob’s example by offering sacrifices of prayer unto God, and seeking His direction; let them not take a step until they have waited upon the Lord for His blessing: then they will have Jacob’s companion to be their friend and helper.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Miserable men are we if we miss the aid of your prayers, but happy are we if we live in your supplications.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“A prayerless soul is a Christless soul. Prayer is the lisping of the believing infant, the shout of the fighting believer, the requiem of the dying saint falling asleep in Jesus. It is the breath, the watchword, the comfort, the strength, the honour of a Christian. If thou be a child of God, thou wilt seek thy Father’s face, and live in thy Father’s love. Pray that this year thou mayst be holy, humble, zealous, and patient; have closer communion with Christ.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayer is the slender nerve that moves the muscle of omnipotence.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“I have now concentrated all my prayers into one, and that one prayer is this, that I may die to self, and live wholly to Him.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Rest assured it is harder to know how to be full than it is to know how to be hungry–so desperate is the tendency of human nature to pride and forgetfulness of God. Take care that you ask in your prayers that God would teach you “how to be full.”  “Let not the gifts thy love bestows.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“We may not make sure that the Lord will at once remove all disease from those we love, but we may know that believing prayer for the sick is far more likely to be followed by restoration than anything else in the world; and where this avails not, we must meekly bow to His will by whom life and death are determined. The tender heart of Jesus waits to hear our griefs, let us pour them into His patient ear.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“If I feel myself disinclined to pray, then is the time when I need to pray more than ever.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Remember how it is written of Job, “The Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends.” While he prayed for himself, he remained a captive; but when he prayed for those unfriendly friends of his, then the Lord smiled upon him, and 
loosed his captivity.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“The song which thrills to heaven, and seeks to emulate seraphic strains, hath human discords in it. The prayer which moves the arm of God is still a bruised and battered prayer.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Prayer is the lisping of the believing infant, the shout of the fighting believer, the requiem of the dying saint falling asleep in Jesus. It is the breath, the watchword, the comfort, the strength, the honor of a Christian.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Our prayer must always be, ‘Holy Spirit, dwell with me! Holy Spirit, dwell with Your servants!” 


Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“It is always best to get blessings into our house in the legitimate way, by the door of prayer; then they are blessings indeed, and not temptations.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“PRAISE should always follow answered prayer;”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Do not sit down and try to pump up repentance from the dry well of a corrupt nature. It is contrary to the laws of your mind to suppose that you can force your soul into that gracious state. Take your heart in prayer to Him who understands it and say, “Lord, cleanse it. Lord, renew it. Lord, work repentance in it.” The more you try to produce penitent emotions in yourself, the more you will be disappointed. However, if you believingly think of Jesus dying for you, repentance will burst forth.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Revival begins by Christians getting right first and then spills over into the world.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“We do not forget to eat: we do not forget to take the shop shutters down: we do not forget to be diligent in business: we do not forget to go to our beds to rest: but we often do forget to wrestle with God in prayer, and to spend, as we ought to spend, long periods in consecrated fellowship with our Father and our God.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“If you can trust Him with your soul, you must of necessity trust Him with your prayers!”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“For my own part, my constant prayer is that I may know the worst of my case, whatever the knowledge may cost me. I know that an accurate estimate of my own heart can never be otherwise than lowering to my self-esteem; but God forbid that I should be spared the humiliation which springs from the truth! The sweet red apples of self-esteem are deadly poison; who would wish to be destroyed thereby? The bitter fruits of self-knowledge are always healthful, especially if washed down with the waters of repentance, and sweetened with a draught from the wells of salvation; he who loves his own soul will not despise them.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“When you plead the name of Christ, you plead that which shakes the gates of hell and that which the hosts of heaven obey, and God Himself feels the sacred power of that divine plea.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“The Christian should work as if all depended upon him, and pray as if it all depended upon God.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Whether it be prayer or praise, whether it be work or suffering, the genuine salt of humility cannot be used in excess.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Thoughts and reasonings are like the steel wedges which give a hold upon truth; but prayer is the lever, the prise which forces open the iron chest of sacred mystery, that we may get the treasure hidden within.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Private prayer is the drill ground for our more public exercises, neither can we long neglect it without being out of order when before the people.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Keep the altar of private prayer burning. This is the very life of all piety. The altars of church and family borrow their fires from here, so let this one burn well. Secret devotion is the very essence, evidence, and barometer of vital, experiential religion.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“If we cannot prevail with men for God, we will at least endeavor to prevail with God for men.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Will you not this day make it your prayer? “Lord, help me to glorify Thee; I am poor, help me to glorify Thee by contentment; I am sick, help me to give Thee honour by patience; I have talents, help me to extol Thee by spending them for Thee; I have time, Lord, help me to redeem it, that I may serve Thee; I have a heart to feel, Lord, let that heart feel no love but Thine, and glow with no flame but affection for Thee; I have a head to think, Lord, help me to think of Thee and for Thee; Thou hast put me in this world for something, Lord, show me what that is, and help me to work out my life-purpose.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The very precariousness of weather excites a large amount of earnest prayer.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Spare neither labor in the study, prayer in the closet, nor zeal in the pulpit. If men do not judge their souls to be worth a thought, compel them to see that their minister is of a vex], different opinion.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The seed of acceptable devotion must come from heaven’s storehouse. Only the prayer which comes from God can go to God.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“This is a large petition. To intercede for a whole city needs a stretch  of faith, and there are times when a prayer for one man is enough to  stagger us. But how far-reaching was the psalmist’s dying intercession!  How comprehensive! How sublime! “Let the whole earth be filled with his  glory.” It doth not exempt a single country however crushed by the foot  of superstition; it doth not exclude a single nation however barbarous.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Reader, is prayer your element or your weariness? Which?”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

And in the Spirit, there is love and acceptance.
I refuse to be put to shame anymore.
Satan enough is enough. 
I have suffered under your yoke of bondage.
You have slandered me.
You have tossed me about.
You have made me undesirable.
You have led others to gossip about me.
You have spread lies and rumors about me. 
But that ends today.
That ends right now in the mighty name of Jesus. 
Jesus came to heal.
Jesus came to make us acceptable. 
I refuse to be trash.
I refuse to be a reject.
I refuse to be dumped.
I refuse to be deplorable. 
I’m a Child of the Most High King.
I’m a Daughter of Jesus Christ.
I’m a Sister of Yeshua.
I’m Royalty.
I’m born of the Spirit of God.
The Holy Spirit is my guide.
Jesus is my Lord and savior.
Jesus is the master of my soul and spirit and life. 
I can’t be rejected by any man or woman.
That is not my portion.
That is not my position. 
Satan I refuse to settle for your breadcrumbs.
I refuse to beg you for what rightly belongs to me. 
Slaving away like Jacob slaved for Laban.
I refuse in the mighty name of Jesus. 
I have suffered enough under your rule.
I have endured pain and suffering.
I have endured enough rejection.
I have endured enough hurt. 
But in the Authority of Jesus Christ, I come against you.
And I say No more.
Satan! No more.
I cast and bind this spirit of rejection in the mighty name of Jesus. 
Satan you are a liar and thief.
Who came to steal, kill and destroy.
But Jesus came to give us Life and to give it to us abundantly.
And I, therefore, take the freedom of Jesus.
I take Jesus. 
Lucifer leave right now.
No more games.
No more excuses.
No more disrespect.
No more deception.
No more loneliness.
No more intimidation.
No more negotiations.
Your time is up.
Leave right now.
I was once a captive but Jesus came to set the captives free.
And he has set me free. 
Men and Women toying with my feelings and emotions stop today.
I deserve healthy and wholesome relations.
I deserve great and godly relationships and friendships.
I deserve to have people who love Jesus and obey him.
I deserve peace, joy, kindness, patience, meekness, gentleness, faithfulness, love, goodness, and self-control.
The fruit of the Holy Spirit.
Not because I’m worthy but because of Jesus Christ.
The blood Jesus shed was not for nothing.
The blood of Jesus is costly.
And It already paid for the fruit and gift of the Spirit. 
Jesus has already bought these things for us.
And so I claim mine.
Because I chose to follow him and make him my King. 
He asks us to take his light yoke and give him our heavy burdens.
And that is what I have decided to do.
To give Jesus my heavy yoke of rejection and betrayal. 
Jesus, I love you so much.
For so many reasons but one of them is that you give us gifts and fruits we don’t deserve.
Thank you Lord. Jesus be glorified.
Jesus thank you for my miracle.
Thank you for my breakthrough.
Thank you for my healthy relationships, marriage, and friendships.
Thank you for my godly marriage, relationships, and friendships. 
Be glorified forevermore.
Be exalted.
Be magnified. 
I lift you up and exalt you.
I bow down before you in reverence. 
You are worthy.
You are excellent.
Thank you for Victory. 
No more separation.
No more divorce.
No more betrayal.
No more dumping.
No more rejection.
No more heartbreak.
No more separations.
No more unfaithfulness. 
Hallelujah!
Thank you, Jesus.
Thank you, Hashem, my portion, and rock.
I pray all this in Jesus’s mighty name.
Amen!

For the creation was subjected to futility — not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it — in the hope 21 that the creation itself will also be set free from the bondage of corruption into the glorious freedom of God’s children.

Is anyone among you sick? He should call for the elders of the church, and they should pray over him after anointing him with olive oil in the name of the Lord. 15 The prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will restore him to health; if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The urgent request of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect.

Please Pray, Seek And Search For God While He Can Be Found – Prayer.


When was the Last time you Spoke to God?
When was the Last time you Sought the Lord?
When was the Last time you Listened to Jesus?
Did you take time to Pray today?
Did you ask God to Guide you through the Day?
Did you thank God for the Blessings he has bestowed you?
Did you tell him about all the things you need and want from him?
 


Many times we take Prayer for granted. Yet Prayer is very powerful and it’s one of the most important ways of communicating to God and maintaining a Vibrate, personal relationship with our Maker.


An anonymous person wrote the Poem below reminding us of the many reasons we don’t receive the things we seek and need from God. I pray it’s a challenge for us to seek, search and find the Lord while we have the time. Because like the Prophet Isaiah cautions us in the Bible there will come a time when we won’t have the opportunity:


Seek the Lord while he may be found;
call on him while he is near.
7 Let the wicked forsake their ways
and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

Isaiah 55:6-7


Poem


I got up early one morning
and rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish
that I didn’t have time to pray.
 .
Problems just tumbled about me,
and heavier came each task.
“Why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered.
He answered, “You didn’t ask.”
 .
I wanted to see joy and beauty,
but the day toiled on, gray and bleak;
I wondered why God didn’t show me.
He said, “But you didn’t seek.”
 .
I tried to come into God’s presence;
I used all my keys at the lock.
God gently and lovingly chided,
“My child, you didn’t knock.”
 .
I woke up early this morning,
and paused before entering the day;
I had so much to accomplish
that I had to take time to pray.

Author unknown


“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Matthew 7:7-8
