Encouraging Quotes on Why We Must Continue to Share

| 6 Comments

Here are some great evangelistic quotes compiled by my friend (and fellow laborer in the Harvest Fields), Steve L., who contributes to our Hope Chapel blog, “Living by Faith.”

“I believe that entertainment and amusements are the work of the Enemy to keep dying men from knowing they’re dying; and to keep enemies of God from remembering that they’re enemies.” —A.W. Tozer

“If you alter or obscure the Biblical portrait of God in order to attract converts, you don’t get converts to God, you get converts to an illusion. This is not evangelism, but deception.” —John Piper

“The more faithful preachers are to the Word of God in their preaching, the more liable they are to the charge of hypocrisy. Why? Because the more faithful people are to the Word of God the higher the message is that they will preach. The higher the message, the further they will be from obeying themselves.” —R.C. Sproul

“We best defend the Lord’s glory by speaking first TO Him about unbelieving men rather than speaking first ABOUT Him to unbelieving men.” —Sinclair B. Ferguson

“Let eloquence be flung to the dogs rather than souls be lost. What we want is to win souls. They are not won by flowery speeches.” —Charles H. Spurgeon

And here’s everyone’s favorite quote (except for those who do not witness):

“Have you no wish for others to be saved? Then you’re not saved yourself, be sure of that!” —Charles H. Spurgeon

  1. AMEN Mr. Spurgeon, AMEN!!

  2. Can you please bring clarity to R. C. Sproul’s comment. Why would they be further from obeying it themselves, would they not in turn, strive to set their own selves higher, higher standards?

    Because the more faithful people are to the Word of God the higher the message is that they will preach. The higher the message, the further they will be from obeying themselves.

  3. His point is that the Word of God would be more fully established in his life so that there would be no misunderstanding of what God said. We have a tendency at times to water down sin. Thanks Eric!

  4. Hey Pastor Steve! Could you maybe bring some clarity to what Sinclair Ferguson is saying? I keep reading it again and again but can’t quite figure out what he is getting at. It sounds like he is saying one has to pray for the salvation of others first and be strong in that area before going out to then witness to them. That’s the way I understand it but again clarity please!

  5. Steve, last month I bought the complete works of A.W. Tozer for my Wordsearch Bible program in hopes to find the reference of the above A.W. Tozer quote. Did Steve L. know of hand which of Tozer’s works does it come from, so that I can read the work in its entirety.

    Thanks for your time!
