A Timely Quote: Iain Murray

The following is a quote that was read by Iain Murray in a tape-recorded sermon entitled, "The Problems of Contemporary Evangelism." I thought it to be a great reminder:

The great want of today is a holier ministry. We do not need more stalwart polemics, more mighty apologists, or preachers who compass a wide range of natural knowledge, important though these be. But we need men of God who bring the atmosphere of heaven with them to the pulpit and speak the borders of another world.

Php 4:9 What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me--practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

What Life, what Joy, what Peace in believing!

To one these are Life unto Life.

To the other, these are death unto death!

Job 12:13 "With God are wisdom and might; he has counsel and understanding.
Job 12:14 If he tears down, none can rebuild; if he shuts a man in, none can open.

Luk 10:3 Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.

and so with me I pray:

amen
