“If you’re a Christian, you’re not a Christian because when Jesus Christ was on that cross – the Romans and Jews beat Him up.
If you’re a Christian – your sins are paid for, because when He was on that tree, He bore the sins of His people.
And God, His own Father, crushed Him under the full force of His wrath – all the wrath that should have been poured out on you; God crushed His only begotten Son in your place.”
“Do you remember when you just got into the word because you wanted to hear something from God?
You wanted to know something about Him. Do you remember when you just prayed because of Him? Is your heart burning for Him?”
“The greatest privilege of a Christian is to be like Jesus Christ”
“As the church runs headlong into judgment today the men of God instead of repenting and crying out and studying God’s word with all their passion are looking for models on how to keep lost people in their congregations and it’s wrong.”
“My dear friend, everybody wants to go to heaven. They just don’t want God to be there when they get there.”
“It is only against the pitch blackness of the night that we see the glory of the stars.
And it is only against the pitch blackness of man’s radical depravity that we can begin to see the glories of the gospel.”
“The work is hindered. The glory of God is tarnished and it is because the people of God no longer know how to discern the things of God.”
“We honor the old prophets, we honor the Tozers and Spurgeons but we don’t want to pay the price they paid, and they paid the price by being men who walked alone who lived with God and who loved His word.”
“The greatest heresy in the American evangelical and Protestant church is that if you pray and ‘ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart’, He will definitely come in.”
“I don’t have a vision except for Jesus Christ. I don’t want to be anything. I don’t want to be a big shot. I don’t want to be important.
I don’t want to conquer the world. I just want to be pleasing to God today and that is enough.
That is enough. and strive as I might, I haven’t obtained that goal so why should I look for another?”
“The question is not whether you would like to pray this prayer and ask Jesus to come into your heart — after all, you know, the handle to your heart is on the inside and if you do not open it Jesus cannot come in. My friend, Jesus is Lord of your heart and if He wants to come in, He will kick the door down.”
