“Jesus is mighty to save, the best proof of which lies in the fact that He has saved me”
C.H. Spurgeon

“Preach the gospel to yourself…
The gospel creates joy; it’s both the source and the object of our joy…
Cultivate this joy by continually meditating on the gospel. Let the cross always be the treasure of your heart, you best and highest thought, and your passionate preoccupation…”
C.J. Mahaney

“Until you see the cross as that which is done by you, then you will never appreciate that it is done for you.”
John Stott

“On the cross, Jesus cannot both save Himself and save you and me. It’s precisely because He refused to save Himself that He is able to save others…”
C.J. Mahaney

“Knowledge without repentance will be but a torch to light men to hell.”
Thomas Watson

“We don’t make the Bible relevant; it is so inherently so simply because it is God’s Word and after all how can anything God says be irrelevant.”
John MacArthur

 

“Nothing sets a Christian so much out of the devil’s reach than humility.” Jonathan Edwards

“Humility is the mindset of a servant. It makes a leader more teachable, more receptive to constructive criticism, better able to work with others, better qualified to deal with other people’s failures and sins, more willing to submit to others, less prone to fight, and quicker to reconcile differences.” Alexander Strauch
 
“Those who think too much of themselves don’t think enough.” Amy Carmichael
“We see Christ exemplified when we see His grace amplified through the sanctified life.”
“One view of Jesus as He is will strike all sin forever dead.” William Cowper
“The Cross of Christ is the central focus of all human history and it will be the focus of all heavenly praise.” R. Holland
“The sovereignty of God is absolute; yet it is never exercised in condemning men who ought to be saved, but rather has resulted in the salvation of men who deserved to be lost.” Erdman
“Lord, I pray that I would vanish in the pulpit so that they might only see Jesus. O’ Lord let them see Jesus not me, let my voice be drown out by yours.”
“Sanctification is justification in action”
“If something is worth fighting for, it is worth rejoicing over.” John Piper
“Works do not belong to the gospel for it is not laws but faith alone, because it (the gospel) is nothing whatever but the promise and offer of divine grace. He then who believes the Gospel receives grace and the Holy Spirit. Thereby the heart becomes glad and joyful in God and then keeps the Law gladly and freely, without the fear of punishment and without the expectation of reward for it is sated and satisfied with that grace of God by which the law has been satisfied.” Martin Luther
“Even prayers and tears of repentance need to be washed in the blood of the Lamb.”
The Gospel has divine power…
“The good bark of the church has had to plough her way through seas of blood, and those who have manned her have been bespattered with the bloody spray; yea, they have had to man her and keep her in motion by laying down their lives unto the death.” C.H. Spurgeon
“Truth is not an end in itself, it is a divinely ordained tool for building Christ-like character.”
“Preaching is theology coming through a man who is on fire.” M. Lloyd Jones
“God chose us not based on our usefulness but based upon the power of Christ’s righteousness. That righteousness transforms us from vessels worthy of destruction into trophies of God’s grace.”
“The saint may be cast down very near to hell and yet shall never come there and the hypocrite may be lifted up very near to heaven and yet never come there. The saint may almost perish and yet be saved eternally; the hypocrite may almost be saved and yet perish finally. For the saint at worst is really a believer, and the hypocrite at best is really a sinner.” Matthew Mead
