"To say that I understand the Gospel and see no need to to get the gospel to all the world proves that I really don't understand the gospel."

 

"Missions is missing in many churches not because of a lack of money, but a lack of Biblical priorities."

 

"The church will never reach the world by becoming a cheap imitation of the world."

 

"Christ is not a product to be marketed, but rather a person to be made known!"

 

"It is not enough for the gospel to just go into all the world, it is supposed to go into all the world in every generation!"

 

"The greatness of a ministry is not found in how many it seats, but rather how many it sends!"

 

"When a man preaches about revival and does not connect it to missions, then he proves that he really knows nothing about revival."

 

"Revival and Missions are Siamese twins that share the same heart. You cannot truly have one without the other. They are inseparable."

David Brainerd

"As long as I see anything to be done for God, life is worth having; but O how vain and unworthy it is to live for any lower end."

 

"I care not where I go, or how I live, or what I endure so that I may save souls. When I sleep I dream of them; when I awake they are first in my thoughts…no amount of scholastic attainment, of able and profound exposition of brilliant and stirring eloquence can atone for the absence of a deep impassioned sympathetic love for human souls."

 

"Here am I, send me; send me to the ends of the earth; send me to the rough, the savage pagans of the wilderness; send me from all that is called comfort on earth; send me even to death itself, if it be but in Thy service, and to promote Thy kingdom."

Charles Spurgeon

"Winners of souls must first be weepers for souls."

 

"We rob the gospel of its power if we leave out its threatenings of punishment."

 

"You shall never make a missionary of the person who does no good at home."

 

"If there be any one point in which the Christian church ought to keep its fervor at a white heat, it is concerning missions. If there be anything about which we cannot tolerate lukewarmness, it is in the matter of sending the gospel to a dying world."

 

"Every Christian is either a missionary or an impostor."

 

"I believe that one reason why the church of God at this present moment has so little influence over the world is because the world has so much influence over the church."

Leonard Ravenhill

“No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here, we fail everywhere.” 

 

“The greatest miracle that God can do today is to take an unholy man out of an unholy world and make him holy, then put him back into that unholy world and keep him holy in it.”

 

“But you know if God should stamp eternity or even judgment on our eyeballs, or if you’d like on the fleshy table of our hearts I am quite convinced we’d be a very, very different tribe of people, God’s people, in the world today. We live too much in time, we’re too earth bound. We see as other men see, we think as other men think. We invest our time as the world invests it. We're supposed to be a different breed of people. I believe that the church of Jesus Christ needs a new revelation of the majesty of God. We’re all going to stand one day, can you imagine it- at the judgment seat of Christ to give an account for the deeds done in the body. This is what- this is the King of kings, and He’s the Judge of judges, and it’s the Tribunal of tribunals, and there’s no court of appeal after it. The verdict is final.” 

 

“The early church was married to poverty, prisons and persecutions. Today, the church is married to prosperity, personality, and popularity.” 

 

“If we had more sleepless nights in prayer, there would be fewer souls to have a sleepless eternal night in hell.”
