Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
- Dwight L. Moody
I venture to say that the greatest earthly blessing that God can give to any of us is health, with the exception of sickness. Sickness has frequently been of more use to the saints of God than health has.
- Charles Spurgeon
I will trust Him. Whatever, wherever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him; in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him; if I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. My sickness, or perplexity, or sorrow may be necessary causes of some great end, which is quite beyond us. He does nothing in vain.
- John Henry Newman
The moment an ill can be patiently handled, it is disarmed of its poison, though not of its pain.
- Henry Ward Beecher
It is this unquiet self-love that renders us so sensitive. The sick man, who sleeps ill, thinks the night long. We exaggerate, from cowardice, all the evils which we encounter; they are great, but our sensibility increases them.
- Francois Fenelon
My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary.
- Martin Luther
In sickness the soul begins to dress herself for immortality. And first she unties the strings of vanity that made her upper garments cleave to the world and sit uneasy.
- Jeremy Taylor
Many saints today are stricken with sickness, weakness and suffering; God is chastening them that they may present their bodies to Him a living sacrifice.
- Watchman Nee
It may seem a strange principle to enunciate as the very first requirement in a hospital that it should do the sick no harm.
- Florence Nightingale
I am never happier in the Lord than when I am in a bedroom with a sick person.
- Smith Wigglesworth
Let me ask you, have ever met anybody when they were really sick say, "Oh my gosh, I have a desperate disease. Get me to Havana; I've got to have the best health care in the world.
- Mike Huckabee
Why do Christians get sick? 1. Some sickness comes from God. 2. Some sickness comes from Satan. 3. Some sickness is chastening for sin.
- John MacArthur
As our Lord asked the sick man whether he wished to be healed, so, without our consent, He will not save us; and sinners are without excuse for not consenting to the will of the Lord and their own salvation.
- Assorted Authors
It is in sickness that we most feel the need of that sympathy which shows how much we are dependent upon one another for our comfort, and even necessities. Thus disease, opening our eyes to the realities of life, is an indirect blessing.
- Hosea Ballou
Health is a good thing; but sickness is far better, if it leads us to God.
- J. C. Ryle
Are there not many whose spiritual life is endangered by their physical condition-many who fall because of their physical weakness-many who cannot work actively for God because of the bondage of illness?
- Watchman Nee
