We are the Bibles the world is reading; We are the creeds the world is needing; We are the sermons the world is heeding.
- Billy Graham
The Christian is a person who makes it easy for others to believe in God.
- Robert Murray McCheyne
Christians never say "good-bye"; just "until we meet again."
- Woodrow Kroll
To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.
- C.S. Lewis
Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion - it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.
- Billy Graham
We are indeed the light of the world--but only if our switch is turned on.
- John Hagee
The true Christian is like sandalwood, which imparts its fragrance to the axe which cuts it, without doing any harm in return.
- Sadhu Sundar Singh
Saints are planted in the house of God; they have a kind of rooting there: but though the tabernacle be a good rooting place, yet we cannot root firmly there, unless we are rooted in Jesus Christ.
- Abraham Wright
God has some really weird kids.
Where are the marks of the cross in your life? Are there any points of identification with your Lord? Alas, too many Christians wear medals but carry no scars.
- Vance Havner
Jews have God's promise and if we Christians have it, too, then it is only as those chosen with them, as guests in their house, that we are new wood grafted onto their tree.
- Karl Barth
I do not want the walls of separation between different orders of Christians to be destroyed, but only lowered, that we may shake hands a little easier over them.
- Assorted Authors
When are Christian folks going to remember that every time you call yourself a Christian, you invoke the name of God, and that if you then walk a walk that does not reflect the presence of Christ in your life, cast a vote that does not reflect the presence of Christ in your life, then you are taking the name of the Lord your God in vain?
- Alan Keyes
Victory is the normal experience of a Christian; defeat should be the abnormal experience.
- Watchman Nee
The note of hallelujah must never be in short supply in the spirit of the believer.
- Watchman Nee
Christians should be grave and serious, though cheerful and pleasant. They should feel that they have great interests at stake, and that the world has too. They are redeemed--not to make sport; purchased with precious blood--for other purposes than to make men laugh. They are soon to be in heaven--and a man who has any impressive sense of that will habitually feel he has much else to do than to make men laugh. The true course of life is midway between moroseness and levity; sourness and lightness; harshness and jesting. Be benevolent, kind, cheerful, bland, courteous--but serious. Be solemn, thoughtful, deeply impressed with the presence of God and with eternal things--but pleasant affable and benignant. Think not a smile sinful; but think not levity and jesting harmless.
- Albert Barnes
A Methodist (Christian) is one who loves the Lord his God with all his heart, with all his soul, with all his mind, and with all his strength. God is the joy of his heart, and the desire of his soul, which is continually crying, 'Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth whom I desire besides thee.' My God and my all! 'Thou art the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.' He is therefore happy in God; yea, always happy, as having in him a well of water springing up unto everlasting life, and over-flowing his soul with peace and joy. Perfect love living now cast out fear, he rejoices evermore. Yea, his joy is full, and all his bones cry out, 'Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who, according to his abundant mercy, hath begotten me again unto a living hope of an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled, reserved in heaven for me.
- John Wesley
What I am anxious to see in Christian believers is a beautiful paradox. I want to see in them the joy of finding God while at the same time they are blessedly pursuing Him. I want to see in them the great joy of having God yet always wanting Him.
- A. W. Tozer
There is one single fact which we may oppose to all the wit and argument of infidelity, namely, that no man ever repented of being a Christian on his death-bed.
- Hannah More
Christians are supposed not merely to endure change, nor even to profit by it, but to cause it.
- Harry Emerson Fosdick
The church of Christ is the multitude of all those who believe in Christ for the remission of sins, and who are thankful for that mercy and who love the law of God purely, and who hate the sin in this world an long for the life to come.
- William Tyndale
To be a Christian is not only to believe the teaching of Christ, and to practice it; it is not only to try to follow the pattern and example of Christ; it is to be so vitally related to Christ that His life and His power are working in us. It is to be "in Christ," it is for Christ to be in us
- Martyn Lloyd-Jones
God means every Christian to be effective, to make a difference in the actual records and results of Christian work. God put each of us here to be a power. There is not one of us but is an essential wheel of the machinery and can accomplish all that God calls us to.
