Quotes and Notes for the Day

SOMETHINGS TO THINK ABOUT

Preachers/preaching.

1.A great deal of preaching today is weak and pointless. It is so weak, that if it was poison it wouldn’t kill anybody and if it was medicine, it wouldn’t cure anybody. The goal of today’s preaching  seems to call  men to a “satisfied life” instead of a “crucified life.”

2. Spurgeon said, “The preacher of course is above all others distinguished as a man of prayer.  He prays as an ordinary Christian, else he were a hypocrite. He prays more than ordinary christian else he will be disqualified for the office he has undertaken. If you ministers are not prayerful you are to be pitied.

3.The make of a great preacher is a man who gives his best on his lowest day.

4.The Devil has seldom done a cleverer thing than hinting to the church that part of their mission is to provide entertainment for the people, with a view to winning them. We don’t need performs in the pulpit, we need preachers.

5.There is no command in the Bible to entertain one another, there is a command  to exhort  one another.

6.God blesses an honest heart that will stand up and peach the truth without apology. If there is one thing the Church of Jesus Christ  needs in this hour, it is men who are afraid of nothing but God; men whose only ambition is to please the Lord of Glory.

7. A pastor should never become involved in anything that send him to the pulpit dry on Sunday. God save us from a dry-eyed religion. 

8.If the pulpit is in fire, there will be a warmth in the spiritual temperature of the pews. The reason we have so many icebergs in the pews is that we have so many polar bears in the pulpit.

9. Soul Winning preacher aim at action: When you are complimented for a message don’t be too well satisfied. Somebody says, ‘ I learned something today.’ That is only the first step. Another says, I see that truth more clearly: you have convinced me.” That is only step number two. You see a man moved to tears and  shakes with emotion under the message. He is aroused, he is stirred, but the one thing most needful for him is to yield – to respond – to act!!

10.The most valuable contribution a preacher can make is not when he is before his people talking about God, but when he is before God talking about his people.

The Bible reveals two ways which people are following to get into heaven. One way, the true way, is God’s way. God’s way into heaven is the way of peace and truth and righteousness. It is the only way approved of God. This way centers in the Lord Jesus Christ who said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6). The Bible declares that there is another way. “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Prov. 14:12).

There are so many popular ways today filled with lost multitudes all over the land, such as the way of morality, the way of respectability, the way of religion, the way of churchianity, the way of baptism, the way of christening, the way of confirmation, the way of penance, the way of confession, the way of “doing the best I can”, the way of self, the way of education, the way of philosophy, the way of false isms and cults that crowd the street. Little wonder then when we speak to people about the way of salvation, that so many have asked, “How can I know which is the true way? There are so many different ideas and so many religions.”

But there is ONE difference between God’s way of salvation and man’s way, and that difference is found in a Person, the Lord Jesus Christ. You will notice that man leaves Christ out of the center of his way. You will discover that the modern false cults and isms demote Christ to a mere man and add something to what He has already done for your salvation and mine. We become children of God through a supernatural birth. Jesus said to Nicodemus: “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). Jesus also said, “Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” (John 3:7)
