50 John MacArthur Quotes

    - John MacArthur

  • "God must open the eyes of our understanding before we can truly know and rightly interpret His truth. His truth is available only to those with a regenerate spirit and in whom His Spirit dwells, for only the Spirit can illumine Scripture. Just as the physically blind cannot see the sun, the spiritually blind cannot see the Son. Both lack proper illumination."

    - John MacArthur
    Topics: Holy Spirit


  • "Prayers are the nerves that move the muscles of omnipotence. Prayer is not an exercise in futility because God's will, will be done in any case; prayer is the means by which God's will is carried out."

    - John MacArthur
    Topics: Prayer


  • "It means to preach the Bible in such a way, that the meaning of the Bible passage is presented entirely and exactly as it was intended by God. That's the challenge - the divine Word coming through the preacher."

    - John MacArthur
    Topics: Preaching


  • "Prayer is the spontaneous response of the believing heart to God. Those truly transformed by Jesus Christ find themselves lost in wonder and joy of communion with Him. Prayer is as natural for the Christian as breathing."

    - John MacArthur
    Topics: Prayer


  • "Remember that even Jesus' most scathing denunciation - a blistering diatribe against the religious leaders of Jerusalem in Matthew 23 - ends with Christ weeping over Jerusalem. Compassion colored everything He did."

    - John MacArthur

  • "I am convinced, by the way, that friendships provide the most fertile soil for evangelism. When the reality of Christ is introduced into a relationship of love and trust that has already been established, the effect is powerful. And it seems that invariably, when someone becomes a true follower of Christ, that person's first impulse is to want to find a friend and introduce that friend to Christ."

    - John MacArthur
    Topics: Friendship, Evangelism


  • "Generosity is impossible apart from our love of God and of His people. But with such love, generosity not only is possible but inevitable."

    - John MacArthur
    Topics: Giving


  • "Sixteen of the thirty-eight parables of Jesus deal with money. One out of ten verses in the New Testament deals with that subject. Scripture offers about five hundred verses on prayer, fewer than five hundred on faith, and over two thousand on money. The believer's attitude toward money and possessions is determinative."

    - John MacArthur
    Topics: Money


  • "A person who is not being purified from sin has no claim on being saved from it."

    - John MacArthur
    Topics: Purity, Sin


  • "Nowhere in Scripture do we see real gifts of the Spirit operating when someone is out of control or under some sort of supernatural seizure. Nowhere does the New Testament teach that the Spirit of God causes Christians to fall into a trance, faint, or lapse into frenzied behavior. On the contrary, "The fruit of the Spirit is... self-control"."

    - John MacArthur
    Topics: Gifts, Holy Spirit


  • "The gospel according to Jesus explicitly and unequivocally rules out easy-believism. To make all of our Lord's difficult demands apply only to a higher class of Christians blunts the force of His entire message. It makes room for a cheap and meaningless faith - a faith that may be exercised with absolutely no impact on the fleshly life of sin. That is not saving faith."

    - John MacArthur
    Topics: The Gospel


  • "God is not a cosmic killjoy. I know some people who believe He is. They think God runs around saying, "There's one having fun; get him!" They believe God wants to rain on everybody's parade. But that isn't so. God made you. He knows how you operate best. And He knows what makes you happy. The happiness He gives doesn't stop when the party's over. It lasts because it comes from deep within."

    - John MacArthur
    Topics: God, Happiness
