A man's real belief is that which he lives by. What a man believes is the thing he does, not the thing he thinks.
- George Macdonald
Faith is a living and unshakable confidence, a belief in the grace of God so assured that a man would die a thousand deaths for its sake.
- Martin Luther
When we believe that God is Father, we also believe that such a father's hand will never cause his child a needless tear. We may not understand life any better, but we will not resent life any longer.
- William Barclay
He does not believe who does not live according to his belief.
- Thomas Fuller
It is of no use to say to men, "Let not your heart be troubled," unless you finish the verse and say, "Believe in God, believe also in Christ."
- Alexander MacLaren
If I get well and write a book on Christianity, about which we have talked, we can attend more fully to this matter; but if I should be taken away suddenly, I do not wish to leave any duty of this kind unperformed. I want to leave somewhere a declaration of my belief in Christianity.
- Daniel Webster
You can't tell it like it is, if you don't believe it like it was.
- Vance Havner
The hallmark of intelligence is not whether one believes in God or not, but the quality of the processes that underlie one's beliefs.
- Alister McGrath
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
- Martin Luther
Learn that urgency in prayer does not so much consist in vehement pleading, as in vehement believing. He that believes most the love and power of Jesus will obtain the most in prayer.
- Robert Murray McCheyne
We can't have full knowledge all at once. We must start by believing; then afterwards we may be led on to master the evidence for ourselves.
- Thomas Aquinas
There is no saint here who can out-believe God. God never out-promised Himself yet.
- Charles Spurgeon
For the most part we live upon successes, not promises: unless we see and feel the print of victories, we will not believe.
- John Owen
Sight is not faith, and hearing is not faith, neither is feeling faith; but believing when we neither see, hear, nor feel is faith; and everywhere the Bible tells us our salvation is to be by faith. Therefore we must believe before we feel, and often against our feelings, if we would honor God by our faith.
- Hannah Whitall Smith
What I believe in my heart must make sense in my mind.
- Ravi Zacharias
Faith is the root of all blessings. Believe, and you shall be saved; believe, and you must needs be satisfied; believe, and you cannot but be comforted and happy.
- Jeremy Taylor
It is more necessary for us to be active than to be orthodox. To be orthodox is what we wish to be, but we can only truly reach it by being honest, by being original, by seeing with our own eyes, by believing with our own heart.
- Henry Drummond
I believe there is no man in the world so constituted but he can believe in God's word. He simply tells you to believe in Him, and He will save you.
- Dwight L. Moody
Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation.
- Assorted Authors
God chooses us, not because we believe, but that we may believe.
We should inquire once again as to what the life of faith is. It is one lived by believing God under any circumstance: "If he slay me," says Job, "yet would I trust in Him" (Job 13:15 Darby). That is faith.
- Watchman Nee
We have a right to believe whatever we want, but not everything we believe is right.
- Ravi Zacharias
