Too many think lightly of sin, and therefore think lightly of the Savior. He who has stood before his God, convicted and condemned, with the rope about his neck, is the man to weep for joy when he is pardoned, to hate the evil which has been forgiven him, and to live to the honour of the Redeemer by whose blood he has been cleansed.

Charles Spurgeon

A letter from a German biker who ended up at Zupke’s house and was later converted: I want to congratulate you on your 50th wedding anniversary. I clearly remember an instance when I met you first. I came in and sat down at the table; then you, Vaylard, came in and you hugged and kissed your wife. I say the truth, I had never see that before — a couple being married for that many years still being in love. I observed the same phenomenon then in other Christian families, and that was one of the strongest encouragements for me to seriously think about becoming a Christian. I figured if I become married I want to enjoy love all the days of my life and not just a few years or months as I observed in all the other marriages.

Bob Jennings, General Journal, 1999

Time continues and much of the Father’s eternal plan for us all is unfolding. Our youth is passing. Our stories are being written. The “midst of the years” can be pretty tough, as it is written, Psalm 102:23 – He has weakened my strength in the way; He has shortened my days. I say, “O my God, do not take me away in the midst of my days.”

Bob Jennings, General Journal




The spirit of Christ is the spirit of missions. The nearer we get to Him, the more intensely missionary we become.

Henry Martyn

There are people who love those who agree with them and admire them, but have no time for those who oppose and dislike them. A Christian’s love must be universal!

Jonathan Edwards

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

Jonathan Edwards

Today some say that to demand repentance by sinners is to demand works for salvation. But if preaching repentance means preaching works, then lay the charge at John’s feet and Jesus’ feet as well. Then go ahead and make the same charge toward Peter and Paul.

Leonard Ravenhill, In Light of Eternity pg. 551

If a million people smiled on me while I knew God was frowning on me, I wouldn’t be happy. But if God smiled on me while a million people frowned on me, I wouldn’t be unhappy.

Leonard Ravenhill

Some women spend hours preparing physically for church. What would happen if we all spent the same amount of time preparing spiritually for church with prayer and meditation?

Leonard Ravenhill

Church unity comes from corporate humility.

Leonard Ravenhill

To graduate a preacher from a seminary without a prayer life is like sending a car from the assembly line without a motor.

Leonard Ravenhill

Think twice before you speak; think three times and you may not speak at all.

Leonard Ravenhill, In Light of Eternity pg. 572

My faith has no bed to sleep upon but omnipotence.

Samuel Rutherford

Our little time of suffering is not worthy of our first night’s welcome home to Heaven.

Samuel Rutherford

I went accordingly to my room, and locked my door, and putting the Bible on a chair, I went down on my knees at the chair. There I remained for several hours in prayer and meditation over the word of God; and I can tell you that I learned more in those three hours which I spent in this way, than I had learned for many months previously.
