Ezekiel 11:19-20 [view]
Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me.

A.W. Pink [view]
None but the Spirit of Truth can write God's Law on my heart. Here, then, is the first and most essential qualification for understanding and interpreting the Scriptures, namely a mind illuminated by the Holy Spirit.
A.W. Pink [view]
The gospel is not an announcement that God has relaxed his justice or lowered his standard of holiness.
A.W. Pink [view]
The gospel is not good advice, but good news. It does not speak of what man is to do, but tells what Christ has done.
A.W. Pink [view]
The Gospel is the means that God uses ot call out His own elect.
A.W. Pink [view]
This generation has forgotten that the gospel message does not clean up and shine the outside of a person, rather it bores into the very heart and soul of a person and radically changes that person from the inside forever.
A.W. Tozer [view]
Salvation does not come by learning from the life of Christ but by receiving life from the death of Christ.
Adrian Rogers [view]
If evangelism is not a passion for the pastor, it will not be a priority for the people.

If you want to listen to God, open your Bible. Beware of every other notion about how you're going to hear from God.
Alistair Begg [view]
If you're going to be known for one thing, be known as a Gospel man.
Alistair Begg [view]
The great need is for us to be taught theologically, not just stirred emotionally.

Trying to make the Gospel more 'relevant' is like trying to make water more wet.

Do not go where it is all fine music and grand talk and beautifl architecture, go where the gospel is preached and go often.

Do not try to make the Gospel tasteful to carnal minds. Do not hide the offense of the cross, lest you make it of no effect.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
Every Christian is either a missionary or an imposter.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
Gospel tracts are fantastic for young people or any Christians who have but little power and little ability, but nevertheless, wish to do something for Christ. They have not the tongue of the eloquent, but they may have the hand of the diligent. They cannot stand and preach but they can stand and distribute here and there these silent preachers.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
I would sooner bring one sinner to Jesus than unravel all the mysteries of the divine word, for salvation is what we are to live fore.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
If I was saved by a simple gospel, then I am bound to preach that same simple gospel 'till I die, so that others may be saved by it. When I cease to preach salvation by faith in Jesus, put me into a lunatic asylum, for you may be sure that my mind is gone.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our bodies. If they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees. Let no one go there unwarned or unprayed for.

If you have no desire to bring others to Heaven, you are not going there yourself.

If you long to save men's souls, you must tell them a great deal of disagreeable truth."
Charles Spurgeon [view]
It is easy to bring a man to the river of regret, but you cannot make him drink the water of repentance.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
It is God's Word, not our comment on God's Word, which saves souls. The Word of God is powerful for all sacred ends.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
Man, until sovereign grace opens his ears, is deaf to the heavenly harmonies of the love of God in Christ Jesus.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
Preach Christ, that is the magnet; He will draw His own to Himself.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
Satan tells me I am unworthy. But I always was unworthy, and yet you have long loved me. So my unworthiness cannot stop me from having fellowship with you now.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
Soulwinning is the chief business of the Christian minister; indeed, it should be the main pursuit of every true believer.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
The diver plunges deep to find pearls, and we must accept any labor or hazard to win a soul.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
The greatest moments in history are not battles of conquerors, but the preaching of the Gospel.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
The greatest of all miracles is the salvation of a soul.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
The heart of the gospel is redemption, and the essence of redemption is the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
The Law is for the self-righteous, to humble their pride. The Gospel is for the Lost, to remove their despair.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
The most important daily habit we can possess is to remind ourselves of the gospel.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
The preaching of Christ is the thunderbolt, the sound of which makes all hell shake.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
The true minister of Christ feels impelled to preach the whole truth, because it and it alone can meet the wants of man. What evils has this world seen through a distorted, mangled, man-moulded gospel.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
To be a soul winner is the happiest thing in the world. And with every soul you bring to Jesus Christ, you seem to get a new heaven here upon earth.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
Tracts have done more for the salvation of souls than all the sermons that have ever been preached.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
Until God gives me the roll call of the elect, I am going to preach the "whosoever will" gospel. That is the gospel we are to preach today.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
We are not saved by obedience, for obedience is the result of salvation. We are saved by faith because faith leads us to obey.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
We hear complaints that the minister speaks too harshly and talks too much of judgment. Saved sinners never make that complaint.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
When preaching and private talk are not available, you need to have a tract ready. Get good striking tracts or none at all. But a touching gospel tract may be the seed of eternal life. Therefore do not go out without your tracts.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
While others are congratulating themselves, I have to sit humbly at the foot of the cross and marvel that I'm saved at all.
Charles Spurgeon [view]
It is not kindness to tell patients who need strong medicine that nothing serious is wrong with them.
Cornelius Van Til [view]
It is the reformed faith that must take upon itself the leadership in Christian apologetics.
Cornelius Van Til [view]
If people are actually "basically good", wouldn't the earth be basically peaceful?
Dan Lietha [view]
Humility, not pride, should be what motivates us to share the gospel with unbelievers. For in sharing the gospel with those who are perishing, we are reminded that we were once perishing ourselves.
Darrell Harrison [view]
The martyrs did not die because they believed the gospel. They died because the proclaimed the gospel.
David Platt [view]
God's wrath IS part of God's Glory. Because if you look at the cross and don't see the wrath of God against sin, you are NOT seeing the love of God there either.
Dr. James White [view]
What is the critic’s most common error? Amazingly, it is a simple failure to read the text carefully and in context.

Christian, it is not your duty to make the Gospel acceptable, but it is your duty to make it available.
Dr. Reg Dunlap [view]
The Bible will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from the Bible.
Dwight L. Moody [view]
The power of a simple gospel tract, placed in the hands of a willing servant of God, can never be underestimated. It can lead a soul to Christ and transform a life of eternity.
Dwight L. Moody [view]
Men do not reject the Bible because it contradicts itself, but because it contradicts them.
E. Paul Hovey [view]
By the law we see our misery and by the gospel we see our remedy.
Edmund Calamy [view]
Evangelism is not a professional job for a few trained men, but is instead the unrelenting responsibility of every person who belongs to the company of Jesus.
Elton Trueblood [view]
It is unloving to keep the truth from people. Especially if that truth has eternal consequences.
Frank Turek [view]
Tracts are the silent preachers of the gospel, going forth into places where the living voice cannot reach.
George Whitefield [view]
We can preach the Gospel of Christ no further than we have experienced the power of it in our own hearts.
George Whitefield [view]
Biblical Evangelism is the realization that the Word of God and the Word of God only has the power to convert the sinner.
Grant R. Castleberry [view]
God's revelation is foundational to all of our knowledge.
Greg Bahnsen [view]
The gospel is to be preached to human beings, not as elect or reprobate, but as sinners, all of whom need redemption.
Herman Bavnick [view]
The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed.
Hudson Taylor [view]
A genuine Gospel-faith has nothing selfish about it – it never makes a man think only of his own salvation. It stirs him up, on the contrary, to concern about the souls of others. I always suspect that those who care nothing whether their brethren are saved or not, must in reality be ignorant or thoughtless about their own state.
J.C. Ryle [view]
Beware of manufacturing a God of your own: a God who is all mercy, but not just. Such a God is an idol of your own.
J.C. Ryle [view]
God knew what we were before conversion - wicked, guilty, and defiled; yet He loved us.
J.C. Ryle [view]
Happy indeed is that church whose members not only desire to reach heaven themselves, but desire also to take others with them.
J.C. Ryle [view]
It is the neglect of the Bible which makes so many a prey to the first false teacher whom they hear.
J.C. Ryle [view]
It would have been well for the church of Christ, if the warnings of the Gospel had been as much studied as its promises.
J.C. Ryle [view]
No salvation without regeneration - no spiritual life without a new birth - no heaven without a new heart.
J.C. Ryle [view]
One single soul saved shall outlive and outweigh all the kingdoms of the world.
J.C. Ryle [view]
Since Satan cannot destroy the Gospel, he has too often neutralized its usefulness by addition, subtraction, or substitution.
J.C. Ryle [view]
Take away the cross of Christ, and the Bible is a dark book.
J.C. Ryle [view]
Tell the world! Tell the young. Tell the poor. Tell the aged. Tell the ignorant. Tell the sick. Telle the dying. Tell them all about Christ.
J.C. Ryle [view]
The beginning of the way to heaven, is to feel that we are on the way to hell.
J.C. Ryle [view]
The Gospel was not meant merely to reside in our intellect, memories, and tongues—but to be seen in our lives.
J.C. Ryle [view]
The man who does not glory in the gospel can surely know little of the plague of sin that is within him.
J.C. Ryle [view]
Unity without the gospel is a worthless unity; it is the very unity of hell.
J.C. Ryle [view]
We have the truth, and we need not be ashamed to say so.
J.C. Ryle [view]
Without a divine call, no one can be saved.
J.C. Ryle [view]
If we forget that it is God’s prerogative to give results when the gospel is preached, we shall start to think that it is our responsibility to secure them. And if we forget that only God can give faith, we shall start to think that the making of converts depends, in the final analysis, not on God, but on us, and that the decisive factor is the way we evangelize. This line of thought consistently followed out will lead us astray.
J.I. Packer [view]
A healthy church is one that is shaped by the gospel.
Joel Beeke [view]
The Puritans, then, were not afraid to use the law of God as an instrument of evangelism. When God is about to play the chord of grace in the soul, they taught, he usually starts with the bass note of the law.
Joel Beeke [view]
As the hearts of men are attracted to Jesus Christ, their minds are filled with reverence and love for the Scriptures.
John Calvin [view]
Beware of placing even the smallest drop of your confidence on anything apart from the gospel.
John Calvin [view]
God cannot be sincerely called upon by others than those to whom, through the preaching of the gospel, his kindness and gentle dealings have become known.
John Calvin [view]
God has created the entire world that it should be the theatre of His glory by the spread of His gospel.
John Calvin [view]
In no part of the earth was there ever such thunder heard as the voice of the Gospel.
John Calvin [view]
It is a sacrifice well-pleasing to God to advance the spread of the gospel.
John Calvin [view]
It is our duty to proclaim the goodness of God to every nation.
John Calvin [view]
It is very just that we should labor… to further the progress of the gospel.
John Calvin [view]
Let us understand that there is no salvation whatsoever outside of Jesus Christ, for He is the beginning and the end of faith.
John Calvin [view]
Nothing could be more inconsistent concerning the nature of faith than that deadness which would lead a man to disregard his brethren, and to keep the light of knowledge... in his own breast.
John Calvin [view]
The flesh and blood of Christ are not less truly given to the unworthy than to the elect believers of God; and yet it is true, that just as the rain falling on the hard rock runs away because it cannot penetrate, so the wicked by their hardness repel the grace of God, and prevent it from reaching them.
John Calvin [view]
The gospel cannot be published without instantly driving the world to rage.
John Calvin [view]
The heart cannot be opened to receive His mercy unless it be utterly empty of all opinion of its own worth.
John Calvin [view]
The pastor ought to have two voices; One for gathering the sheep; and another for driving away wolves.
John Calvin [view]
To know God is to be changed by God.
John Calvin [view]
We shall never be clothed with the righteousness of Christ except we first know assuredly that we have no righteousness of our own.
John Calvin [view]
We should remember that the gospel is preached not only by the command of Christ but at his urging and leading.
John Calvin [view]
Without the gospel, everything is useless and vain.
John Calvin [view]
The public preaching of the word of God is the chief ordinary means of salvation.
John Knox [view]
America's moral decline is a spiritual problem, not a political one, and its solution is the gospel, not partisan politics.
John MacArthur [view]
How do you evangelize people? You lead them to the Holy Scripture.
John MacArthur [view]
If you try to develop a kind of Christianity that's not offensive, that's not Christianity, it's not the Gospel.
John MacArthur [view]
Is God unfair in not choosing to save everyone 'Fair' would send everyone to hell. You don't want fair, you want mercy.
John MacArthur [view]
Make sure Satan has to climb over a lot of Scripture to get to you.
John MacArthur [view]
The very one who gave the Law that condemns us also supplies the righteousness needed to save us.
John MacArthur [view]
We must return to the message God has called us to preach. We need to confront sin and call sinners to repentance.
John MacArthur [view]
Although my memory is fading, I remember two things very clearly: I am a great sinner, and Christ is a great savior.
John Newton [view]
Unless we are thoroughly convinced that without Christ we are under the eternal curse of God, as the worst of His enemies, we shall never flee to Him for refuge.
John Owen [view]
Christ did not die for any upon condition, if they do believe; but He died for all God’s elect, that they should believe.
John Owen [view]
Every time we say we believe in the Holy Spirit, we mean we believe that there is a living God able and willing to enter human personality and change it.
John Owen [view]
Poor souls are apt to think that all those whom they read or hear of to be gone to heaven, went there because they were so good and holy. Yet not one of them, not any one that is now in heaven (Jesus Christ alone excepted), did ever come there any other way but by forgiveness of sins.
John Owen [view]
Satan’s greatest success is in making people think they have plenty of time before they die to consider their eternal welfare.
John Owen [view]
The Gospel will teach a man to feel sin and believe righteousness at the same time. Faith will carry heaven in one hand and hell in the other; showing the one deserved, the other one purchased.
John Owen [view]
The most tremendous judgment of God in this world is the hardening of the hearts of men.
John Owen [view]
The nature and end of judgment or sentence must be corrective, not vindictive; for healing, not destruction.
John Owen [view]
The purpose of our holy and righteous God was to save His church, but their sin could not go unpunished. It was, therefore, necessary that the punishment for that sin be transferred from those who deserved it but could not bear it, to one who did not deserve it but was able to bear it.
John Owen [view]
There is no death of sin without the death of Christ.
John Owen [view]
Therefore, on God alone will I rely for my keeping. I will continually look to Him.

To suppose that whatever God requireth of us that we have power of ourselves to do, is to make the cross and grace of Jesus Christ of none effect.
John Owen [view]
It is amazing what the distribution of tracts has done and will do.
John Wesley [view]
You have one business on earth, to save souls.
John Wesley [view]
Seek not to grow in knowledge chiefly for the sake of applause, and to enable you to dispute with others; but seek it for the benefit of your souls.
Jonathan Edwards [view]
The design of gospel tracts is to awaken the minds of men, and to excite in them a sense of their danger and their need of a Savior.
Jonathan Edwards [view]
Jesus Christ did not come into this world to make bad people good; He came into this world to make dead people LIVE.
Lee Strobel [view]
Saying "Preach the Gospel daily, use words if necessary" is like saying "Feed the hungry, use food if necessary".
Ligon Duncan [view]
A little science estranges man from God, but much science leads them back to Him.
Louis Pasteur [view]
To evangelize is to declare on the authority of God what he has done to save sinners, to warn men of their lost condition, to direct them to repent, and to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Mark Dever [view]
We plan for so many less important things; why not plan for our evangelism?
Mark Dever [view]
The best way to learn, however, is not to keep reading and studying until you feel super-confident, with no doubts left regarding your ability.
Mark J. Farnham [view]
If I could answer all your questions about Christianity to your satisfaction would you bow down and worship him?
Mark Spence [view]
A simple layman armed with Scripture is greater than the mightiest pope without it.
Martin Luther [view]
Every week I preach justification by faith to my people, because every week they forget it.
Martin Luther [view]
I am not permitted to let my love be so merciful as to tolerate and endure false doctrine.
Martin Luther [view]
The first duty of the gospel preacher is to declare God's law and to show the nature of sin.
Martin Luther [view]
The god of this world is riches, pleasure and pride.
Martin Luther [view]
The recognition of sin is the beginning of salvation.
Martin Luther [view]
A sinner does not decide for Christ; a sinner flies to Christ in utter helplessness and despair.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
As long as a man think that he can save himself he remains lost.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
Evangelism must start with the holiness of God, the sinfulness of man, the demands of the Law and the eternal consequences of evil.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
God has chosen to call out His people by means of evangelism and the preaching of the Word. he ordains the means as well as the end.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
I never find Jesus Christ changing His Gospel in order to make it suit the people. I find Him changing the people in order to make them fit into His Gospel.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
If my preaching of this cross is not an offense to the natural man, I am misrepresenting it.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
It is an essential part of the gospel that conviction must always precede conversion; the gospel of Christ condemns before it releases.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
No man can believe the gospel in and of himself; the power of the Spirit alone can lead anyone to belief; without it we are spiritually dead and lost and ruined and under the wrath of God.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
Our very believing is the result of the power of God.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
Salvation is not a reformation of behavior but a transformation of character.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
The business of the Gospel is to bring people to God, and to reconcile them to God. Not to fill churches! Not to have good statistics! But to reconcile men to God, to save them from the wrath to come.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
The Christian is not a good man. He is a vile wretch who has been saved by the grace of God.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
There is no 'way', no 'truth' in the world, apart from Christ.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
We must stand firm in the truth, in the message, for without it we have no power. We may be very nice and kind to one another, but that will not convince the world of sin, and bring them to Jesus. The truth alone can do that.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
We preach not to fill our churches, but to save sinners from hell, and the two are not the same.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
We should so know God that our one longing and desire should be that the whole world should come to know Him too.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
When a man says, 'Because I have sinned I have lost (salvation)', what he is really saying on the other side is, 'I had it because I was good.' He is wrong in both respects.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
Why is it that some have believed? It is because the Spirit has sanctified them, has set them apart, has called them out. It is the work of the Spirit in conviction, and calling out, and giving power to believe.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones [view]
The gospel of Jesus Christ is an arrow of light that pierces the darkness living in the hearts of men.
Neal Fant [view]
So completely was Jesus bent upon saving sinners by the sacrifice of Himself, He created the tree upon which He was to die, and nurtured from infancy the men who were to nail Him to the accursed wood.
Octavius Winslow [view]
Oh my friends, we are loaded with countless church activities, while the real work of the church - that of evangelizing and winning the lost is almost entirely neglected
Oswald J. Smith [view]
There's nothing in the Bible that tells the world to come to the church; but, there's everything in the Bible that tells the church to go to the world!
Paul Kader [view]
The Word of God must be established as the absolute standard of all truth and knowledge, and asserted as the ultimate reference point for all reasoning.
Paul S Nelson [view]
The gospel is not merely an introductory message to Christianity--it is the message of Christianity, and the believer would do well to give his life in the pursuit of knowing its glory and making its glory known.
Paul Washer [view]
We should never tell a man that he only needs to add Christ to make his life complete. He must be told that without Christ he has no life.
Paul Washer [view]
We were not called to watch TV, to play games, to waste our time. People are dying and going to Hell and they need the gospel.
Paul Washer [view]
What this world needs today are preachers who preach the gospel over, and over, and over, and over again.
Paul Washer [view]
I would rather win souls than be the greatest king or emperor on earth; I would rather win souls than be the greatest general that ever commanded an army; I would rather win souls than be the greatest poet, or novelist, or literary man who ever walked this earth. My one ambition in life is to win as many as possible.
R.A. Torrey [view]
Evangelism belongs, not merely to the well-being of a church, but to its very being. Evangelism is of the essence of the true church.
R.B. Kuiper [view]
God is never obligated to be merciful to a rebellious creature. He doesn't owe us mercy.
R.C. Sproul [view]
It's better lose a thousand friends or a thousand relatives than to lose the Gospel.
R.C. Sproul [view]
Men can bring people to church but only God can bring people to Christ.
R.C. Sproul [view]
The gospel is only good news when we understand the bad news.
R.C. Sproul [view]
The Word of God can be in the mind without being in the heart; but it cannot be in the heart without first being in the mind.
R.C. Sproul [view]
There is nothing in this universe you need more desperately than Christ.
R.C. Sproul [view]
Without the doctrine of justification by faith alone, the gospel is not merely compromised; it's lost altogether.
R.C. Sproul [view]
Your personal testimony is not the Gospel.
R.C. Sproul [view]
Humanity is a four-day-dead Lazarus whose only hope is in the life-giving words of Jesus Christ.
Ray Comfort [view]
The combined accomplishments of great men and women in history don't hold a candle to being used by God in the salvation of one soul.
Ray Comfort [view]
Over the years the Lord has blessed that one-to-one evangelistic activity to bring more people to faith in Christ than any service, program, or event we sponsor.
Ryan Denton [view]
He who denies the existence of God, has some reason for wishing that God did not exist.
Saint Augustine [view]
If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don't like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.
Saint Augustine [view]
It's not that the Gospel is intellectually hard to understand; it's that it's hard for the depraved heart to take.
Sinclair Ferguson [view]
“Jesus said, ‘Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.’ If you’re not fishing, you’re not following.”
Steve Lawson [view]
If the gospel we preach does not exalt God, magnify Christ, and humble man, it is not the gospel.
Steve Lawson [view]
Life is short, death is sure; sin the curse, Christ the cure.
Steve Lawson [view]
Salvation is not a reward for the righteous, it is a gift for the guilty.
Steve Lawson [view]
The cross is the very center of true Christianity. It is where the wrath of God toward sinners is fully satisfied and where sinners are reconciled to God.
Steve Lawson [view]
The power of the gospel is greater than any erupting volcano or explosive bomb. It alone can save lives and transform them into what they must become.
Steve Lawson [view]
We do not go to heaven by climbing a ladder of good works. Nor by pulling ourselves up by our good morality. But by trusting in Jesus Christ who died upon the cross.
Steve Lawson [view]
We've so elevated the love of God over the wrath of God that we've air conditioned hell.
Steve Lawson [view]
You ought to be able to be awakened at 3 am and within 2 seconds be able to explain what the gospel is.
Steve Lawson [view]
Repentance is the vomit of the soul.
Thomas Brooks [view]
Christians were never meant to sit in pews week after week waiting for those who are lost in darkness and stuck at the bottom of life's pit to show up begging for rescue and redemption. God's plan all along has been to send us out. Not just missionaries and evangelists - everyone!!
Unknown [view]
it is not the Christian's job to pressure people for a profession. It is our privilege and pleasure to simply proclaim the gospel. The Holy Spirit's job is to convict and convert.
Unknown [view]
Apologetics is about knowing what we believe, why we believe it and being able to communicate that to others in a winsome and effective way.
Voddie Baucham [view]
I do not approach a person on the basis of a specific sin that he or she needs to quit but on the basis of a nature that needs to be changed.
Voddie Baucham [view]
Repentance is the battle cry of every Christian.
Voddie Baucham [view]
Take your guilt to the cross and your faith to the streets.
Voddie Baucham [view]
The center and the core of the Gospel is what God has done. Not what I have done.
Voddie Baucham [view]
Evangelion (that we call the gospel) is a Greek word and signifieth good, merry, glad and joyful tidings, that maketh a man's heart glad and maketh him sing, dance, and leap for joy.
William Tyndale [view]
It is impossible to preach Christ, except thou preach against antichrist.
William Tyndale [view]
The Church is the one institution that exists for those outside it.
William Tyndale [view]
The Law and the Gospel are two keys. The Law is the key that shutteth up all men under condemnation, and the Gospel is the key which opens the door and lets them out.
William Tyndale [view]
When Christ is preached, the hearts of those who are elect and chosen begin to soften and melt at the abundant mercy of God.
