Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.— S. D Gordon
The most fantastic S. D Gordon quotes that will be huge advantage for your personal development
Prayer wonderfully clears the vision;
steadies the nerves; defines duty; stiffens the purpose; sweetens and strengthens the spirit.
The greatest thing anyone can do for God or man is pray.
Shoes divide men into three classes. Some men wear their father's shoes. They make no decisions of their own. Some are unthinkingly shod by the crowd. The strong man is his own cobbler. He insists on making his own choices. He walks in his own shoes.
Jesus is God spelling Himself out in language that men can understand.
If there be anything that can render the soul calm, dissipate its scruples and dispel its fears, sweeten its sufferings by the anointing of love, impart strength to all its actions, and spread abroad the joy of the Holy Spirit in its countenance and words, it is this simple and childlike repose in the arms of God.
Joy is distinctly a Christian word and a Christian thing.
It is the reverse of happiness. Happiness is the result of what happens of an agreeable sort. Joy has its springs deep down inside. And that spring never runs dry, no matter what happens. Only Jesus gives that joy.
You can do more than pray after you have prayed, but you cannot do more than pray until you have prayed.
Steadfastness, that is holding on; patience, that is holding back; expectancy, that is holding the face up; obedience, that is holding one's self in readiness to go or do; listening, that is holding quiet and still so as to hear.
God's greatest agency; man's greatest agency, for defeating the enemy and winning men back is intercession.
The greatest thing anyone can do for God and man is pray.
It is not the only thing; but it is the chief thing. The great people of the earth today are the people who pray. I do not mean those who talk about prayer; not those who can explain about prayer; but I mean those people who take time and pray.
Prayer does not influence God. Prayer surely does influence God. It does not influence His purpose. It does influence His action.
If we lose the spirit of 'go,' we have lost the very Christian spirit itself.
A disobedient church will become a dead church. It will die of heart failure.
The real victory in all service is won in secret beforehand by prayer.
It takes power for the man of God in the pulpit to speak plainly about particular sins before the faces of those who are living in them; and still more power to do it with the rare tactfulness and tenderness of the Galilean preacher.
Prayer is partnership with God in His planet-sized purposes, and includes the "all things" beside, as an important detail of the whole.
Spirit discernment is rare because it is expensive.
It means a sensitive conscience, an instructed understanding through study of the Book of God. It means a passion for purity, for truth, for the right, for Christ Himself, and for living uncompromisingly true in the daily habit. All this lies back of a seeing spirit eye. And these things cost. Discernment is expensive.
Prayer strikes the winning blow; service is simply picking up the pieces.
The way from God to a human heart is through a human heart.
If there are two persons praying, there are three.
If three meet to pray, there are four praying. There is always one more than you can see.
Faith is blind...to impossibilities and deaf to doubt. It listens only to God.
Prayer is repeating the victor's name (Jesus) into the ears of Satan and insisting on his retreat.
The greatest thing anyone can do for God and for man is to pray.
You can do more than pray after you have prayed, but you cannot do more than pray until you have prayed. Prayer is striking the winning blow ... service is gathering up the results.
No man's hand has ever yet reached up to take as much as the Pierced Hand is reaching down to give.
Ideals are like tuning forks: sound them often to bring your life up to standard pitch.
One should never initiate anything that he cannot saturate with prayer.
