I learned more about Christianity from my mother than from all the theologians in England.
I want the whole Christ for my Saviour, the whole Bible for my book, the whole Church for my fellowship, and the whole world for my mission field.

We should be rigorous in judging ourselves and gracious in judging others.
You have nothing to do but to save souls. Therefore spend and be spent in this work. And go not only to those that need you, but to those that need you most. It is not your business to preach so many times, and to take care of this or that society; but to save as many souls as you can; to bring as many sinners as you possibly can to repentance.
Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth.
One of the greatest evidences of God’s love to those that love him is, to send them afflictions, with grace to bear them.
The bottom of the soul may be in repose, even while we are in many outward troubles; just as the bottom of the sea is calm, while the surface is strongly agitated.

Do you not know that God entrusted you with that money (all above what buys necessities for your families) to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to help the stranger, the widow, the fatherless; and, indeed, as far as it will go, to relieve the wants of all mankind? How can you, how dare you, defraud the Lord, by applying it to any other purpose?
God does nothing but in answer to prayer.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Bring me a worm that can comprehend a man, and then I will show you a man that can comprehend the Triune God.
Tell me how it is that in this room there are three candles and but one light, and I will explain to you the mode of the divine existence.
