We are more than conquerors
through him that loved us.

Romans 8:37

"The enemy is behind us.
The enemy is in front of us.
The enemy is to the right
and the left of us.
They can't get away this time!"

General Douglas McArthur

"My words are Spirit and Life, and not to be weighed by the understanding of man. They are not to be drawn forth for vain approbation, but to be heard in silence, and to be received with all humility and great affection."
Thomas à Kempis

My Jesus, I Love Thee
"I'll love thee in life,
I will love thee in death;
And praise thee as long
as thou lendest me breath;
And say when the death dew
lies cold on my brow,
If ever I loved thee,
My Jesus tis now."
by William R. Featherston

(Composed in 1862 at the age of 16)

to slay error is to proclaim the truth. The surest mode of extinguishing falsehood is to boldly advocate Scripture principles.

Scolding and protesting will not be so effectual in resisting the progress of error as the clear proclamation of the truth in Jesus."

C. H. Spurgeon

Search the Scriptures
Acts 17:11
"...they received
the word
with all readiness
of mind,
and searched
the scriptures daily,
whether those things
were so."

making God's love
triumph in the heart.

Old Time Sermons  

Eric Liddell   It's complete surrender
Eric Liddell ran, spoke, and lived with great faithfulness and solid commitment to Christ. The movie, Chariots of Fire, chronicled his faith, influencing yet another generation for Jesus Christ.

Reuben Archer Torrey   Personal Soul Winner
"If you are this moment troubled about any sin that you have ever committed, either in the past or in the present, just look at Jesus on the cross. It is an act of base ingratitude to God to brood over sins that He in His infinite love has canceled."

J. C. Ryle

J. C. Ryle   First Bishop of Liverpool
Ryle combined his commanding presence and vigorous advocacy of his principles with graciousness and warmth in his personal relations. Vast numbers of working men and women attended his special preaching meetings, and many were led to faith in Christ.

Thomas DeWitt Talmage

Spurgeon stated of Talmage's ministry: "His sermons take hold of my inmost soul. The Lord is with the mighty man. I am astonished when God blesses me but not surprised when He blesses him."

Rodney (Gipsy) Smith

Rodney (Gipsy) Smith   God's Gipsy
"The longer I live the more astonished I am at the reluctance of Christian people to testify concerning their own experience. If only they could summon up courage to say to some lonely neighbor, 'I love Him; do you?' the results would amaze them."

Harry A. Ironside

Never formally ordained and with no experience whatever as a pastor, Ironside took over the 4,000-seat Moody Memorial Church in Chicago and often filled it to capacity for 18 1/2 years.

George Fox

William Perkins

Dr. William Perkins   The Elizabethan Puritan Par Excellance!
Mr. Perkins was so pious and exemplary in his life, that malice itself was unable to reproach his character.

John Hyde

John Hyde   "O God, give me souls or I die!"
John Hyde's prayer life ranks in a league with the prayer lives of men like Andrew Murray, George Mueller, Charles Finney, and Rees Howells. Draw near to brother Hyde's prayer closet and you will see the tears coursing down his face-and hear the groaning and sobs as he pleads, "O God, give me souls or I die!" And indeed the Lord did-thousands of them. If you want to pray effectively, you can do with no better example than to read the life of John Hyde.

Richard Baxter
