55 of my favorite christian quotes

I thought it would be fun to share some of my top favorite quotes with you. They are a collection of quotes from influential Christians, some older and some newer. They have been inspirational and convicting in my life and so worth reading. It would be my desire that as you ponder them you would let them convict you and press you closer to the Lord as they have for me.

Quotes by charles spurgeon

“It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.”

“God is too good to be unkind and He is too wise to be mistaken. And when we cannot trace His hand, we must trust His heart.”

quotes by A.w.tozer

“We cannot pray in love and live in hate and still think we are worshipping God.”

“The deeper into the heart of God I go, the more the enemy will oppose me, but the more God will draw me. The enemy may be strong, but his strength is limited, whereas God’s grace has no limit.”

“God is looking for those with whom He can do the impossible – what a pity that we plan only the things that we can do by ourselves.”

“Those who seek the deeper Christian life and those who want the riches that are in Christ Jesus the Lord seek no place, no wealth, no things, only Christ.”

“One important point many fail to understand is that the Bible was never meant to replace God; rather, it was meant to lead us into the heart of God. Too many Christians stop with the text and never go on to experience the presence of God.”

quotes by andrew murray

“As natural and easy as it has been to be proud, it must become natural for us to be humble.”

“The sooner I learn to forget myself in the desire that He may be glorified, the richer will be the blessing that prayer will bring to myself. No one ever loses by what he sacrifices to the Father.”

quotes by E.M.Bounds

“Those who know God the best are the richest and most powerful in prayer. Little acquaintance with God, and strangeness and coldness to Him, make prayer a rare and feeble thing.”

“We can learn more in an hour praying, when praying indeed, than from many hours of rigorous study.”

“Our ability to stay with God in our closet measures our ability to stay with God out of the closet.”

“If our religion does not set us on fire, it is because we have frozen hearts. God dwells in a flame.”

“Prayer makes a godly man, and puts within him the mind of Christ, the mind of humility, of self-surrender, of service, of pity, and of prayer. If we really pray, we will become more like God, or else we will quit praying.”

“Prayer fills man’s emptiness with God’s fullness.”

“Our praying needs to be pressed and pursued with an energy that never tires, a persistency which will not be denied, and a courage that never fails.”

quotes by major ian thomas

“The measure of a man’s worth is the measure in which he no longer lives “to and for himself,” but “to and for Jesus Christ.” No more and no less!”

“There are those who have a life they never live. They have come to Christ and thanked Him only for what He did, but do not live in the power of who He is.”

 “The moment you come to realize that only God can make a man godly, you are left with no option but to find God, and to know God, and to let God be God in and through you.”

 “Christian living is no a method or technique. It is the principle of an enhanced life.”

“True repentance says, “I cannot,” and true faith adds, “But God, You can!”

“The Christian life can be explained only in terms of Jesus Christ, and if your life as a Christian can still be explained in terms of you — your personality, your willpower, your gift, your talent, your money, your courage, your scholarship, your dedication, your sacrifice, or your anything — then although you may have the Christian life, you are not yet living it.”

“There are those who have a life they never live. They have come to Christ and thanked Him only for what He did, but do not live in the power of who He is.”

Quotes by c.s.lewis

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”

“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.”

“True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.”

“The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become – because He made us. He invented us. He invented all the different people that you and I were intended to be. . .It is when I turn to Christ, when I give up myself to His personality, that I first begin to have a real personality of my own.”

“The great thing to remember is that though our feelings come and go God’s love for us does not.”

“There is but one good; that is God. Everything else is good when it looks to Him and bad when it turns from Him.”

“God never made a promise that was too good to be true.”

“The Bible was not given for our information but for our transformation.”

“We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won’t need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine.”

“You might as well try to hear without ears or breathe without lungs, as to try to live a Christian life without the Spirit of God in your heart.”
