It is wonderful what God can do with a broken heart, if He gets all the pieces.— Samuel Chadwick
The most delicious Samuel Chadwick quotes that are new and everybody is talking about
Spirit filled souls are ablaze for God.
They love with a love that glows. They serve with a faith that kindles. They serve with a devotion that consumes. They hate sin with fierceness that burns. They rejoice with a joy that radiates. Love is perfected in the fire of God.
Nothing would turn the nation back to God so surely and so quickly as a Church that prayed and prevailed. The world will never believe in a religion in which there is no supernatural power. A rationalized faith, a socialized Church and a moralized gospel may gain applause, but they awaken no conviction and win no converts.
Satan laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.
Prayer turns ordinary mortals into men of power.
It brings power. It brings fire. It brings rain. It brings life. It brings God.
The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying.
He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayer-less religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.
The Holy Ghost does not come upon methods, but upon men.
He does not anoint machinery, but men. He does not work through organizations, but through men. He does not dwell in buildings, but men. He indwells the Body of Christ, directs its activities, distributes its forces, empowers its members.
The Church is the Body of Christ, and the Spirit is the Spirit of Christ.
He fills the Body, directs its movements, controls its members, inspires its wisdom, supplies it's strength. He guides into truth, sanctifies its agents, and empowers for witnessing. The Spirit has never abdicated His authority nor relegated His power.
There is no better way to serve others than to pray for them.
There is nothing about which I do not pray. I go over all my life in the presence of God. All my problems are solved there.
A season of silence is the best preparation for speech with God.
Confusion and impotence are the inevitable results when the wisdom and resources of the world are substituted for the presence and power of the Spirit.
Truth without enthusiasm, morality without emotion, ritual without soul, are things Christ unsparingly condemned. Destitute of fire, they are nothing more than a godless philosophy, an ethical system, and a superstition.
The soul's safety is in its heat. Truth without enthusiasm, morality without emotion, ritual without soul, make for a Church without power. Destitute of the Fire of God, nothing else counts; possessing Fire, nothing else matters.
The great souls who became mighty in prayer and rejoiced to spend three and four hours a day alone with God were once beginners.
Prayer in secret is life finding expression in the realized Presence of God our Father.
The soul is never less alone than when it is alone with God.
The Secret of Praying is Praying in Secret.
The secret place of prayer calls for every faculty of mind and heart.
The prayer that prevails is not the work of lips and fingertips.
It is the cry of a broken heart and the travail of a stricken soul.
The reason so many people do not pray is because of its cost.
The cost is not so much in the sweat of agonizing supplication as in the daily fidelity to the life of prayer.
Destitute of the fire of God, nothing else counts; possessing fire, nothing else matters.
intensity is a law of prayer. God is found by those who seek Him with all their heart. Wrestling prayer prevails. The fervent effectual prayer of the righteous is of great force.
Prayer is the acid test of devotion.
To pray as God would have us pray is the greatest achievement of earth.
The world will never believe in a religion in which there is no power.
The Holy Spirit cannot conquer the world with unbelief, nor can He save the world with a worldly Church. He calls for a crusade, a campaign, and an adventure of saving passion. For this enterprise He wants a separated, sanctified and sacrificial people.
The Church is the Body of Christ begotten, unified, and indwelt by the Spirit, but forgetting the Spirit, men wrangle over limbs, functions, and orders. The Christian religion is hopeless without the Holy Ghost.
Communion is deeper than theology.
A gift without a heart behind it is a bribe. God asks for our heart, not our gifts.
If you're successful, don't crow. If you're defeated, don't croak.
The Christian religion is hopeless without the Holy Ghost.
When alone with God, be alone with Him.
Men ablaze are invincible. Hell trembles when men kindle. The stronghold of Satan is proof against everything but fire. The Church is powerless without the flame of the Holy Ghost. Destitute of fire, nothing else really counts; possessed of fire, nothing else really matters. The one vital need is fire. Without the flame and fervour of the Holy Ghost the Church will never accomplish its mission.
I owe everything to the gift of Pentecost.
For fifty days the facts of the Gospel were complete, but no conversions were recorded. Pentecost registered three thousand souls. It is by fire that a holy passion is kindled in the soul whereby we live the life of God. The soul's safety is in its heat. Truth without enthusiasm, morality without emotion, ritual without soul, make for a Church without power.
The Church gives more time, thought, and money to recreation and sport than to prayer.
The one thing that is said to have surprised God is that the voice of intercession had ceased. 'And He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor' (Isaiah 59:16).
Brethren, the crying sin of the church is her laziness after God.
Brains can argue, but it takes heart to comfort.
Hurry is the death of Prayer.
To pray in the name of Christ is to pray as one who is at one with Christ, whose minid is the mind of Christ, whose desires are the desires of Christ, and whose purpose is one with that of Christ.
True prayer is a lonely business.
In these days there is no time to pray;
but without time, and a lot of it, we shall never learn to pray.
It takes us long to learn that prayer is more important than organization, more powerful than armies, more influential than wealth and mightier than all learning.
Great grief prays with great earnestness.
Prayer is not a collection of balanced phrases; it is the pouring out of the soul. What is love if it be not fiery? What are prayers if the heart be not ablaze? They are the battles of the soul. In them men wrestle with principalities and powers... ”The prayer that prevails is not the work of lips and fingertips. It is the cry of a broken heart and the travail of a stricken soul.
Praying solves the problems of prayer.
Passion does not compensate for ignorance.
The root-trouble of the present distress is that the Church has more faith in the world and the flesh than in the Holy Ghost.
There is no way to learn to pray but by praying.
Compassion costs. It is easy enough to argue, criticize and condemn, but redemption is costly, and comfort draws from the deep. Brains can argue, but It takes heart to comfort.
