Now Playing: Do we know the heart of man and the heart of God?
*** Every unconverted man that you meet is governed by two things; his own lusts, and public opinion.
*** Never count your converts - you will never count enough.
*** We can have as much of Christ as we want, and our lives show how much we want of Him.
*** God has given the work of Christ for our consciences, the Person of Christ for our meditation; and the love of Christ to warm our hearts.
*** This world is not an adequate platform for the manifestation of the ways of God in government [but Israel was].
*** Every exhortation of scripture is founded upon what we possess, it is not a matter of attainment, and God uses exhortation to show us what we possess.
*** We break bread, if intelligently, not merely as forgiven sinners, but as members of the body of Christ.
*** God intends that we should breath by faith, the atmosphere of heaven before we get there.
*** Death is the principle of Christianity; resurrection is its power.
*** Christian obedience is not law-keeping, but delight in love, giving subjection to the will of another, whether expressed or not.
*** The blood of Christ puts my sins away - the death of Christ puts me away - the cross of Christ separates me from the world.
*** You never met a man who walked with God, who at the end of his life said, "I wish I hadn't done it?" and you never will.
*** The sovereignty of God does not lessen man's responsibility. Scripture treats man as a sinner, to be restored to God or judged. Rationalists, as a race to be educated.
*** The unconverted mind of man is the plaything of the devil.
*** I never knew a man to get converted by getting a raise in pay. It's a man's need that brings him to Christ.
*** The first great step, when a man desires to be saved, is unqualified self-condemnation.
*** Conversion is the turning of the heart and will to God through grace. The fear of God is the setting aside of will.
*** God is sufficient unto Himself in every thing but love. He must have objects to love.
*** Man measures sin by man's treatment of man. God measures sin by man's treatment of Christ.
*** In God's presence sin is not measured by transgression, but by what God is.
*** All our unhappiness and failure, whether as saint of sinner, springs from unbelief of the goodness that is in the heart of God for us.
*** Anything that robs your soul of joy in the Lord, robs you of the richest treasure you know in life's pathway.
*** All our intelligence and all our happiness depends upon how we treat the Divine guest that dwells within.
