The Gospel quotes by Walter Brueggemann
#1. The Gospel is a very dangerous idea. We have to see how much of that dangerous idea we can perform in our own lives. There is nothing innocuous or safe about the Gospel. Jesus did not get crucified because he was a nice man. #Quote by Walter Brueggemann
The Gospel quotes by John Campbell Shairp
#2. Criticism is not religion, and by no process can it be substituted for it. It is not the critic's eye, but the child's heart, that most truly discerns the countenance that looks out from the pages of the gospel. #Quote by John Campbell Shairp
The Gospel quotes by Pierre Abelard
#3. I had wished to find in philosophy and religion a remedy for my disgrace; I searched out an asylum to secure me from love ... duty, reason and decency, which upon other occasions have some power over me, are here useless. The Gospel is a language I do not understand when it opposes my passion ... but when love has once been sincere how difficult it is to determine to love no more! 'Tis a thousand times more easy to renounce the world than love. I hate this deceitful, faithless world; I think no more of it ... #Quote by Pierre Abelard
The Gospel quotes by Spencer W. Kimball
#4. Modern scientific findings harmonize with revelation through the ages. No conflict exists between the gospel and any truth ... All true principles are a part of the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is no principle that we need to fear. #Quote by Spencer W. Kimball
The Gospel quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#5. I think for far too long the Church has concluded that Christians don't need the gospel, it's simple what non-Christian people need in order to be saved. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
The Gospel quotes by David A. Bednar
#6. Missionary work is a manifestation of our spiritual identity and heritage. We were foreordained in the premortal existence and born into mortality to fulfill the covenant and promise God made to Abraham. We are here upon the earth at this time to magnify the priesthood and to preach the gospel. That is who we are, and that is why we are here - today and always. #Quote by David A. Bednar
The Gospel quotes by Rex E. Lee
#7. I have no criticism of the basic concept of irrefutable authority. Properly employed, it is the easiest, the surest, and the proper way to resolve conflicts. There is an omnipresent temptation, however, to rely on such authority regardless of its applicability; and I know of no better examples than the scriptures and the Constitution.

We find it easy to lapse into the expansive notion that the Constitution, like the gospel, embraces all truth and that it protects and guarantees all that is right, equitable, and just. From that grand premise it is only a short and comfortable leap to the proposition that the Constitution embraces my particular notion of what is right, equitable, and just. The Constitution lends itself to this kind of use because of its breadth.

Issues such as foreign aid, fluoridation of water, public versus private education, progressive income tax, to which political party I should belong and which candidate I should support; questions about economic development and environmental quality control; questions about the power of labor unions and the influence of big business in government--all these are issues of great importance. But these questions cannot and ought not to be resolved by simply resorting to irrefutable authority. Neither the Constitution nor the scriptures contain answers to these questions, and under the grand plan of eternal progress it is our responsibility to develop our own skills by working out our own answers throug #Quote by Rex E. Lee
The Gospel quotes by N. T. Wright
#8. Once you understand how first-century Jewish covenant theology actually works, you will see that law-court language, `participation' language, and a great deal else besides, settle down and make their home with each other, dovetailed without confusion and distinguished without dislocation. But to take this further we must turn, at last, to Paul. What, precisely, does Paul mean by `justification', and how does it relate to what he meant by `the gospel'? #Quote by N. T. Wright
The Gospel quotes by Timothy Keller
#9. The Gospel is good news not good advice. Advice = what we should do. News = report of what was done for us. #Quote by Timothy Keller
The Gospel quotes by Sarah Bessey
#10. One needn't identify as a feminist to participate in the redemptive movement of God for women in the world, The gospel is more than enough. Of course it is! But as long as I know how important maternal health is to Haiti's future, and as long as I know that women are being abused and raped, as long as I know girls are being denied life itself through selective abortion, abandonment, and abuse, as long as brave little girls in Afghanistan are attacked with acid for the crime of going to school, and until being a Christian is synonymous with doing something about these things, you can also call me a feminist. #Quote by Sarah Bessey
The Gospel quotes by Allen Mitsuo Wakabayashi
#11. The gospel is the story of a good King who has come to reign. In love, he has come to restore his justice, peace and love in a world gone mad. He has battled the enemy and won the decisive victory that will secure the enemy's defeat. And we are on the way to the day when he will reign and everything will resonate with his blazing goodness. #Quote by Allen Mitsuo Wakabayashi
The Gospel quotes by L. P. Jacks
#12. In its essence the Gospel is a call to make the experiment of comradeship, the experiment of fellowship, the experiment of trusting the heart of things, throwing self-care to the winds, in the sure and certain faith that you will not be deserted, forsaken nor betrayed, and that your ultimate interests are perfectly secure in the hands of the Great Companion. This insight is the center, the kernel, the growing point of the Christian religion, which, when we have it, all else is secure, and when we have it not, all else is precarious. #Quote by L. P. Jacks
The Gospel quotes by Jeremiah Burroughs
#13. I am discontented because I have not these things which God never yet promised me, and therefore I sin much against the Gospel, and against the grace of faith. #Quote by Jeremiah Burroughs
The Gospel quotes by John Ruskin
#14. There is nothing so great or so goodly in creation, but that it is a mean symbol of the gospel of Christ, and of the things He has prepared for them that love Him. #Quote by John Ruskin
The Gospel quotes by Katie J. Davis
#15. Adoption is a beautiful picture of redemption. It is the Gospel in my living room. #Quote by Katie J. Davis
The Gospel quotes by Darrin Patrick
#16. While our heart for social justice grows out from the gospel, social justice by itself will not communicate the gospel. We need gospel proclamation, for as much as people may see our good deeds, they cannot hear the good news unless we tell them. Social justice, though valuable as an expression of Christian love, should, especially as a churchwide endeavor, serve the goal of gospel proclamation. #Quote by Darrin Patrick
The Gospel quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#17. Jesus did not simply die to save us from our sins; Jesus lived to save us from our sins. His life and teachings show us the way to liberation. But you can't fit all that on a bumper sticker. So we try to boil it down to a formula. Four steps. The "Romans Road." John 3:16. And yet the gospel itself, in its eternal scope and scandalous particularity, defies reduction. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
The Gospel quotes by D. Elton Trueblood
#18. Our religion is one which challenges the ordinary human standards by holding that the ideal of life is the spirit of a little child. We tend to glorify adulthood and wisdom and worldly prudence, but the Gospel reverses all this. The Gospel says that the inescapable condition of entrance into the divine fellowship is that we turn and become as a little child. #Quote by D. Elton Trueblood
The Gospel quotes by Billy Graham
#19. I'm not a great preacher, and I don't claim to be a great preacher ... I'm an ordinary preacher, just communicating the Gospel in the best way I know how. #Quote by Billy Graham
The Gospel quotes by Thomas F. Torrance
#20. The original Christians regarded the deposit of faith, as finally inseparable from the very living substance of the Gospel in the saving event of Christ crucified, risen and glorified, but as once and for all entrusted to the church through its apostolic foundation in Christ, informing, structuring and quickening its life and faith and mission as the body of Christ in the world... While the deposit of faith was replete with the truth as it is in Jesus, embodying kerygmatic, didactic and theological content, but its very nature it could not be resolved into a system of truths or set of normative doctrines and formulated beliefs, for the truths and doctrines and beliefs entailed could not be abstracted from the embodied form which they were given in Christ in the apostolic foundation of the church without loss of their real substance. Nevertheless in this embodied form "the faith once for all delivered to the saints" constituted the regulative basis for all explicit formulation of Christian truth, doctrine and belief in the deepening understanding of the church and its regular instruction of catechumens and the faithful. app is #Quote by Thomas F. Torrance
The Gospel quotes by Ion Keith-Falconer
#21. Charlie Studd has written me a delightful letter ... He thinks the Chinese language was invented by the devil to prevent the Chinese from ever hearing the Gospel properly. #Quote by Ion Keith-Falconer
The Gospel quotes by Philip Yancey
#22. The gospel presents both high ideals and all-encompassing grace. Very often, however, the church tilts one direction or the other. Either it lowers the ideals, adjusting moral standards downward, softening Jesus' strong commands, rationalizing behavior; or else it pulls in the boundaries of grace, declaring some sins worse than others, some sinners beyond the pale. Few churches stay faithful both to the high ideals of gospel and its bottomless grace. #Quote by Philip Yancey
The Gospel quotes by Gardiner Spring
#23. The man who is satisfied, because he thinks he is safe, who feels that he has religion enough, because he thinks he has enough to save him from hell, is as ignorant of the power as he is a stranger to the consolation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. #Quote by Gardiner Spring
The Gospel quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#24. It wasn't that the Gospel proved useful for my many worries but that the Gospel proved the uselessness of my worries and so refocused my whole attention. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
The Gospel quotes by Paul David Washer
#25. It is only against the pitch blackness of the night that we see the glory of the stars. And it is only against the pitch blackness of man's radical depravity that we can begin to see the glories of the gospel. #Quote by Paul David Washer
The Gospel quotes by Massey H. Shepherd
#26. The Gospel is not presented to mankind as an argument about religious principals. Nor is it offered as a philosophy of life. Christianity is a witness to certain facts; to events that have happened, to hopes that have been fulfilled, to realities that have been experienced, to a Person who has lived and died and been raised from the dead to reign forever. #Quote by Massey H. Shepherd
The Gospel quotes by Martin Luther
#27. The Law terrorizes the conscience. The Law reveals the wrath and judgment of God. The Gospel does not threaten. The Gospel announces that Christ is come to forgive the sins of the world. The Gospel conveys to us the inestimable treasures of God. #Quote by Martin Luther
The Gospel quotes by Alistair Begg
#28. Children should be able to see the Gospel modeled in the way their father loves their mother with a sacrificial love ... #Quote by Alistair Begg
The Gospel quotes by Matt Chandler
#29. So, relational evangelism? Go for it, as long as it turns into actual evangelism. You hanging out having a beer with your buddy so he can see that Christians are cool is not what we're called to do. You're eventually going to have to open up your mouth and share the gospel. #Quote by Matt Chandler
The Gospel quotes by John Vockler
#30. For us in the Pacific, in Asia, in India, and in Africa, Christian unity is not an optional extra. It is an urgent necessity, for our divisions are a real stumbling-block to the proclamation of the Gospel. #Quote by John Vockler
The Gospel quotes by John Foxe
#31. But, though persecuting malice raged, yet the Gospel shone with resplendent brightness; and, firm as an impregnable rock, withstood the attacks of its boisterous enemies with success. #Quote by John Foxe
The Gospel quotes by David Platt
#32. One preacher described it as if you and I were standing a short hundred yards away from a dam of water ten thousand miles high and ten thousand miles wide. All of a sudden that dam was breached, and a torrential flood of water came crashing toward us. Right before it reached our feet, the ground in front of us opened up and swallowed it all. At the Cross, Christ drank the full cup of the wrath of God, and when he had downed the last drop, he turned the cup over and cried out, "It is finished." This is the gospel. #Quote by David Platt
The Gospel quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#33. Communist propaganda would sometimes include statements such as "we include almost all the commandments of the Gospel in our ideology". The difference is that the Gospel asks all this to be achieved through love, through self-limitation, but socialism only uses coercion. This is one point. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
The Gospel quotes by Roger E. Olson
#34. No truth is more pervasive in Scripture and Christian tradition than this one - that real freedom is found in obedience and servanthood. And yet no truth is more incongruent with modern culture. Here we stand before a stark either-or: the gospel message of true freedom versus the culture's ideal of self-creation, autonomy, and living my way. #Quote by Roger E. Olson
The Gospel quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#35. How grateful we are that the heavens are indeed open, that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored, and that the Church is founded on the rock of revelation. We are a blessed people, with apostles and prophets upon the earth today. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
The Gospel quotes by J. Warner Wallace
#36. My friend J. Warner Wallace is one of the most thoughtful and winsome apologists for the gospel I know. Cold-Case Christianity is literally packed with insights to share with the skeptics in your life, and this book will give you the confidence to share it! Dr. Rick Warren, author of The Purpose-Driven Life and pastor of Saddleback Church #Quote by J. Warner Wallace
The Gospel quotes by Alexander MacLaren
#37. The Gospel is not a mere message of deliverance, but a canon of conduct; it is not a theology to be accepted, but it is ethics to be lived. It is not to be believed only, but it is to be taken into life as a guide. #Quote by Alexander MacLaren
The Gospel quotes by James Jordan
#38. I feel for the first time in my life that I have really come to understand what the gospel actually is. It is about a Father who lost His kids and He simply wants them back ... I look forward to the day when we will see sons and daughers in their full expression and freedom, rising up out of every nation of the world, exhibiting and expressing the person, nature and works of our Father and walking like Jesus in this broken world. #Quote by James Jordan
The Gospel quotes by Bertrand Russell
#39. In the modern world, however, love has another enemy more dangerous than religion, and that is the gospel of work and economic success. It is generally held, especially in America, that a man should not allow love to interfere with his career, and that if he does, he is silly. But in this as in all human matters a balance is necessary. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
The Gospel quotes by Timothy Keller
#40. The gospel is distinct from the other two approaches: In its view, everyone is wrong, everyone is loved, and everyone is called to recognize this and change. #Quote by Timothy Keller
The Gospel quotes by Cornelius Plantinga
#41. For the Christian church ... to ignore, euphemize, or otherwise mute the lethal reality of sin is to cut the nerve of the gospel. For the sober truth is that without full disclosure on sin, the gospel of grace becomes impertinent, unnecessary, and finally uninteresting. #Quote by Cornelius Plantinga
The Gospel quotes by Wes Moore
#42. From the pastor who has an affair with his secretary, to the jerk at the office who happens to be a deacon, to the overbearing boss who can't miss his Monday night Bible study, Christians today cause more problems for the gospel than all the devil's demons put together. #Quote by Wes Moore
The Gospel quotes by Nancy Pearcey
#43. Author conveys contemporary respect for Methodist preachers who rode the circuit of frontier settlements to put themselves at risk for the Gospel near the Second Great Awakening. They were dubbed 'God's light artillery'. #Quote by Nancy Pearcey
The Gospel quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#44. The grinding power of the plain words of the Gospel story is like the power of mill-stones, and those who can read them simply enough will feel as if rocks had been rolled upon them. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
The Gospel quotes by D. A. Carson
#45. The way you lose the gospel is not by denying it, but by assuming it. #Quote by D. A. Carson
The Gospel quotes by Edward H. Hammett
#46. THOSE THAT HOPE LITTLE CANNOT GROW MUCH." - George MacDonald, The Hope of the Gospel #Quote by Edward H. Hammett
The Gospel quotes by James MacDonald
#47. In our homes, where we work, in our friendships, we come inevitably to a fork in the road where we must decide, "Will I forgive that?" If the answer is yes, we go forward together in love. If we choose "no, I will not forgive," at that point we will tend to amplify the fault we observe to excuse our withdrawal into bitterness. Everyone loses - and the gospel most of all. #Quote by James MacDonald
The Gospel quotes by Phil Robertson
#48. For the sake of the Gospel, it was worth it ... All you have to do is look at any society where there is no Jesus. I'll give you four: Nazis, no Jesus. Look at their record. Uh, Shintos? They started this thing in Pearl Harbor. Any Jesus among them? None. Communists? None. Islamists? Zero. That's eighty years of ideologies that have popped up where no Jesus was allowed among those four groups. Just look at the records as far as murder goes among those four groups. #Quote by Phil Robertson
The Gospel quotes by Richard Plass
#49. Sadly, some have had a very different experience in community. Rather than a transformation of soul, they have experienced a deformation of soul. They entered a community hoping to find a home of unconditional love. What they found was a self-righteous, self-protective, self-promoting reality. If this has been your experience, we are truly sorry. But the fact that communities often fail to live into what the gospel makes possible is no reason to reject community. The emergence of our true self depends on the community life we live in. It is critical that we all find a good church so that our true self can flourish. #Quote by Richard Plass
The Gospel quotes by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
#50. If your preaching of the gospel of God's free grace in Jesus Christ does not provoke the charge from some of antinomianism, you're not preaching the gospel of the free grace of God in Jesus Christ. #Quote by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
The Gospel quotes by John Piper
#51. The Gospel is not a picture of adoption, adoption is a picture of the Gospel. #Quote by John Piper
The Gospel quotes by Richard Rohr
#52. The Gospel gives our suffering personal and cosmic meaning, by connecting our pain to the pain of others, and finally, by connecting us to the very pain of God. #Quote by Richard Rohr
The Gospel quotes by Frances Ridley Havergal
#53. Might we never be the helpers of the great hinderer, Satan! Let us ask that the Lord Jesus would so perfectly tune our spirits to the keynote of His exceeding great love, that all our unconscious influence may breathe only of that love, and help all with whom we come in contact to obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. #Quote by Frances Ridley Havergal
The Gospel quotes by Ebenezer Erskine
#54. I think, that a man never passes the verge of moral humility, till self-righteousness be dethroned, till the high and towering imaginations of the man's own righteousness by the law be levelled by the mighty weapons of the gospel, and he brought to submit to the righteousness of God for justification, which is, in the gospel revealed 'from faith to faith.' #Quote by Ebenezer Erskine
The Gospel quotes by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
#55. Most of us are painfully aware that we're not perfect parents. We're also deeply grieved that we don't have perfect kids. But the remedy to our mutual imperfections isn't more law, even if it seems to produce tidy or polite children. Christian children (and their parents) don't need to learn to be "nice." They need death and resurrection and a Savior who has gone before them as a faithful high priest, who was a child himself, and who lived and died perfectly in their place. They need a Savior who extends the offer of complete forgiveness, total righteousness, and indissoluble adoption to all who will believe. This is the message we all need. We need the gospel of grace and the grace of the gospel. Children can't use the law any more than we can, because they will respond to it the same way we do. They'll ignore it or bend it or obey it outwardly for selfish purposes, but this one thing is certain: they won't obey it from the heart, because they can't. That's why Jesus had to die. #Quote by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
The Gospel quotes by Howard W. Hunter
#56. Realizing who we are and what we may become assures us that with God nothing really is impossible. From the time we learn that Jesus wants us for a Sunbeam until we learn more fully the basic principles of the gospel, we are taught to strive for perfection. It is not new to us then to talk of the importance of achievement. The difficulty arises when inflated expectations of the world alter our definition of greatness. #Quote by Howard W. Hunter
The Gospel quotes by Will Graham
#57. To me, my grandfather's urgency to preach the Gospel one more time to a lost and dying world is the definition of 'finishing well,' and it's such a blessing and lesson. #Quote by Will Graham
The Gospel quotes by Chris Rice
#58. there is a widespread notion in some of the most energetic contemporary Christian movements that the biblical call to reconciliation is solely about reconciling God and humanity, with no reference to social realities. In this view, preaching, teaching, church life and mission are only about a personal relationship between people and God. Christian energy is focused on winning converts, planting and growing churches, and evangelistic efforts. We have heard pastors say, "We appreciate the work you're doing, but as the leader of my church I'm called to stay focused on the gospel and not get distracted by other ministries." For them, Christianity is exclusively about personal piety and morals. #Quote by Chris Rice
The Gospel quotes by Anne Royall
#59. These bible people remind me of another calamity similar to this missionary scheme, when our people, or any christian power would go to Africa for the pious purpose of kidnapping negroes, the mother would cry out to her children "run, run, the christians are coming," so when ever you hear "bibles," run for your life, if you do not want your pockets picked, or to be insulted and slandered as I was ... and if you hear "hopeful conversions" or the "gospel," don't stop to look behind you. #Quote by Anne Royall
The Gospel quotes by Graeme Goldsworthy
#60. The Gospel presents us with the righteousness of Jesus Christ, who, in his earthly life, perfectly interpreted the word of his Father. In so doing he justified the fallible attempts of his people to interpret the word. The justification of our hermeneutics by the perfect hermeneutics of Christ is the motivation for us to strive for hermeneutical sanctification. #Quote by Graeme Goldsworthy
The Gospel quotes by Mike Yaconelli
#61. Just because we believe the gospel is a life-and-death matter doesn't mean we have to act as if we're dead. #Quote by Mike Yaconelli
The Gospel quotes by John Blase
#62. I charge you with a phrase from the gospel of John, Updike that is: Your only duty is to give the mundane its beautiful due.

You step from this moment with scripture and stole ordained to the ordinary. Ours is an existence in something more than the husk it once was but not yet the bloom it shall be; in other words, you are charged to the in-between, middle-earth, us.

Yes, our lives are sewn on occasion with a texture of joy unmistakable, the foretastes. But many days, if not most hours, reek of repetition, a mundane rising and falling punctuated with what the old hymn writer penned as "seasons of distress and grief." The relief you are charged to bring to our souls in times like these is beauty – nothing more, nothing less. It is your only duty. Give up all other ambitions for the dross they are.

Give the mundane its beautiful due.

Bear witness to the truth we so often bury, that our lives are shot through with drama, interest, relevance, importance, and poetry. Live among us, story by story, with both precision and surprisingness. Help us to believe in God by startling us with the kicker – God believes in us. Know this, that yours is not so much a high calling as it is a careful attention; you are to be a person of prayer, not big britches.

Once you begin a gesture it's often fatal not to go through with it, so please, for the love of God and us and you, go through with this. The world for you may be even harder fr #Quote by John Blase
The Gospel quotes by Harold B. Lee
#63. I earnestly urge all our people to unite under the true banner of the Master, to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ so powerfully that no truly converted person could ever be aligned with these controversial concepts and procedures contrary to the Lord's plan of salvation. #Quote by Harold B. Lee
The Gospel quotes by Simon Greenleaf
#64. The learned are not agreed as to the time when the Gospel of John was written; some dating it as early as the year 68, others as late as the year 98; but it is generally conceded to have been written after all the others. #Quote by Simon Greenleaf
The Gospel quotes by Billy Graham
#65. Only the Holy Spirit can open our eyes. Only He can convict us of the depth of our sin, and only He can convince us of the truth of the Gospel. #Quote by Billy Graham
The Gospel quotes by Phillip E. Johnson
#66. The Intelligent Design movement starts with the recognition that "In the beginning was the Word," and "In the beginning God created." Establishing that point isn't enough, but it is absolutely essential to the rest of the gospel message. #Quote by Phillip E. Johnson
The Gospel quotes by Jonah
#67. It is natural for humankind to reject the gospel. #Quote by Jonah
The Gospel quotes by William Lane Craig
#68. J. Gresham Machen solemnly warned, False ideas are the greatest obstacles to the reception of the Gospel. We may preach with all the fervor of a reformer and yet succeed only in winning a straggler here and there, if we permit the whole collective thought of the nation to be controlled by ideas which prevent Christianity from being regarded as anything more than a harmless delusion.1 #Quote by William Lane Craig
The Gospel quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#69. The huge irony is that the more the gospel is offered in consumer terms, the more the consumers are disappointed. #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson
The Gospel quotes by James Berardinelli
#70. Being snarky and smug doesn't equate to providing insight, and there's more than one occasion when the filmmakers lose sight of this in their zeal to spread the Gospel According to Maher. #Quote by James Berardinelli
The Gospel quotes by Wisdom Kwashie Mensah
#71. The world is waiting for you, never give up on your dream(s). Arise and make an impact, there are people who are just waiting for your story which will give them a turn around in their lives. It can be the message of the gospel, motivation, inspiration, etc. You need to spread that message, you CAN'T KEEP it to yourself. I dare you to Make a Difference #Quote by Wisdom Kwashie Mensah
The Gospel quotes by George Barna
#72. Evangelism that starts at the nonbeliever's point of felt need and ties the gospel into that area of need has the greatest capacity for capturing the mind and heart of the non-Christian. #Quote by George Barna
The Gospel quotes by Greg Boyle
#73. The poor evangelize you about what's important and what is the Gospel, and that that's where the joy is. #Quote by Greg Boyle
The Gospel quotes by Edmund P. Clowney
#74. The call of the Word of God to the gospel ministry comes to ALL those who have the gifts for such a ministry. #Quote by Edmund P. Clowney
The Gospel quotes by Max McLean
#75. This parlor, said the Interpreter, is the heart of a man who was never sanctified by the sweet grace of the gospel. The dust is his original sin and inward corruptions that have defiled the whole man. He that began to sweep at first, is the law. But she that brought water and sprinkled it is the gospel. Now you saw that as soon as the first began to sweep the dust flew about the room so that it could not be cleaned, and you were almost choked with it. This is to show you that the law, instead of cleansing the heart by its working, from sin, does revive, strengthen and increase sin in the soul even as it does discover and forbid it. For the law does not give power to subdue sin. Again, you saw the young woman sprinkle the room with water, upon which it was cleansed with pleasure. This is to show you that when the sweet and precious influence of the gospel comes into the heart then sin is vanquished and subdued and the soul made clean and, consequently, fit for the king of glory to inhabit. #Quote by Max McLean
The Gospel quotes by R.C. Sproul
#76. Your personal testimony, however meaningful it is to you, is not the gospel. #Quote by R.C. Sproul
The Gospel quotes by Timothy Keller
#77. Christ literally walked in our shoes and entered into our affliction. Those who will not help others until they are destitute reveal that Christ's love has not yet turned them into the sympathetic persons the gospel should make them. #Quote by Timothy Keller
The Gospel quotes by Pope Francis
#78. Let us never give in to pessimism, to that bitterness that the devil offers us every day. Do not give in to pessimism and discouragement. We have the firm certainty that the Holy Spirit gives the Church with His mighty breath, the courage to persevere and also to seek new methods of evangelization, to bring the Gospel to the ends of the earth. #Quote by Pope Francis
The Gospel quotes by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
#79. When I neglect the gospel, I'll want nice vacations and nice compliments and nice things to make my life nicer. I'll long to be able to compare myself favorably with others and to know that I am successful. I'll look down on those who don't meet my standards, and I'll idolize those who excel. I'll forget that he is preeminent. #Quote by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
The Gospel quotes by Douglas Wilson
#80. And so, at Christmas, how are we called to imitate Mary, as we treasure up in our hearts the wonderful revelations given to us in God's Word? First, we should focus on the gospel: in one sense, of course, Jesus is the reason for the season. But in another fundamental sense, sin is the reason for the season. We have not entered into a season of feel-goodism, where we think about soft snow and candlelight, with silver bells in the distance. Remember Ramah weeping for her children, remember our abortion mills, remember how dark this world is without Christ, and then cling in faith to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Mary's only Savior is our only hope for salvation as well. #Quote by Douglas Wilson
The Gospel quotes by John Piper
#81. What is God looking for in the world? Assistants? No.
The gospel is not a help-wanted ad. It is a help-available ad. God is not looking for people to work for Him but people who let Him work mightily in and through them. #Quote by John Piper
The Gospel quotes by Richard Dawkins
#82. Luke [the gospel writer] screws up his dating by tactlessly mentioning events that historians are capable of independently checking. There was indeed a census under Governor Quirinius - a local census, not one decreed by Caesar Augustus for the Empire as a whole - but it happened too late in 6 AD, long after Herod's death. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
The Gospel quotes by David S. Baxter
#83. The gospel teaches us that though we may have lost a battle or two, the war is not yet over. With the Lord's help and the hope of the gospel, we can win out in the end. Truth ultimately triumphs over falsehood. Evil is overwhelmed by goodness. Sin, however extreme it may have been, can give way to cleansing and refreshing forgiveness. This is the great hope of the gospel, centered as it is in the life, mission and atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. #Quote by David S. Baxter
The Gospel quotes by Robert M. Price
#84. The lesson of Left Behind is a warning to repent the sin of critical thinking, which the fundamentalist, eager for people to embrace the Gospel of irrational nonsense, equates with intellectual pride. #Quote by Robert M. Price
The Gospel quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#85. The Catholic Church spends a lot of time in very poor countries trying to recruit and spread the Gospel. Let me put it that way: The pope is simply saying ... ?Has he ever said that Mao Tse-tung, that Fidel Castro, that Raul Castro, any other communist is not a Christian? Why Donald Trump? 'Cause Trump wants to build a wall? #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
The Gospel quotes by Timothy Keller
#86. The Bible's solution to a bad marriage is a reorientation to the radical, spousal love of Christ communicated in the gospel. "You shall not commit adultery" (Exod 20:14) makes sense in the context of his spousal love, especially on the cross, where he was completely faithful to us. Only when we know this sacrificial, spousal love of Christ will we have real fortitude to combat lust. His love is fulfilling, so it keeps us from looking to sexual fulfillment to give us what only Jesus can. #Quote by Timothy Keller
The Gospel quotes by Stephen Baldwin
#87. The reason I love Luis Palau is because this is a guy who is completely all about evangelism and reaching people and the lost with the gospel. #Quote by Stephen Baldwin
The Gospel quotes by Oswald Chambers
#88. Today Jesus Christ is being dispatched as the Figurehead of a Religion, a mere example. He is that, but he is infinitely more; He is salvation itself, He is the Gospel of God. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
The Gospel quotes by Horatius Bonar
#89. For we are not saved by believing in our own salvation, nor by believing anything whatsoever about ourselves. We are saved by what we believe about the Son of God and His righteousness. The gospel believed saves; not the believing in our own faith. #Quote by Horatius Bonar
The Gospel quotes by Louis De Montfort
#90. Chosen soul, how will you bring this about? What steps will you take to reach the high level to which God is calling you? The means of holiness and salvation are known to everybody, since they are found in the Gospel; the masters of the spiritual life have explained them; the Saints have practiced them ... These means are: sincere humility, unceasing prayer, complete self-denial, abandonment to Divine Providence, and obedience to the will of God. #Quote by Louis De Montfort
The Gospel quotes by Lauren F. Winner
#91. All through the Torah, God is pictured as having hands, a face. The rabbis say, Of course God doesn't really have hands, but the Torah uses the language of faces and hands and eyes so that we will have an easier time wrapping our minds around this infinite, handless God. That is what you say if you are a rabbi. But if you are a good novelist, you actually give Him hands and eyes by the end of the book, and that is what the Bible does. It says, in Deuteronomy, that God brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm; and then it gives Him an arm in the Gospel of Matthew. #Quote by Lauren F. Winner
The Gospel quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#92. The gospel of Truth is holy word of God. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
The Gospel quotes by Brent L. Top
#93. We must remember that much spiritual growth does not occur suddenly but rather through time and experience. The encouraging message of the gospel is that God does not often require us to perform sensational or extraordinary deeds but rather to try to do better today than we did yesterday. He is mindful of our desires, our determination, and our direction as well as of our deeds. #Quote by Brent L. Top
The Gospel quotes by John E. Toews
#94. The gospel is the good news that God is doing a completely new thing in Jesus - demonstrating divine righteousness, making people right in relationship to God and each other, forgiving sins, liberating from the prison of Sin. Such a gospel frees from guilt - actions that break covenant with God - and overcomes shame - makes right the broken relationships that put people down and make them angry. God's salvation restores shalom. #Quote by John E. Toews
The Gospel quotes by Rob Bell
#95. When the gospel is understood primarily in terms of entrance rather than joyous participation, it can actually serve to cut people off from the explosive, liberating experience of the God who is an endless giving circle of joy and creativity. #Quote by Rob Bell
The Gospel quotes by Pope Leo X
#96. No person shall preach without the permission of his Superior. All preachers shall explain the Gospel according to the Fathers. They shall not explain futurity or the times of Antichrist! #Quote by Pope Leo X
The Gospel quotes by John Stott
#97. No man has ever appreciated the gospel until the law has first revealed him to himself. It is only against the inky blackness of the night sky that the stars begin to appear, and it is only against the dark background of sin and judgment that the gospel shines forth. #Quote by John Stott
The Gospel quotes by Hans Urs Von Balthasar
#98. If one does away with the fact of the Resurrection, one also does away with the Cross, for both stand and fall together, and one would then have to find a new center for the whole message of the gospel. #Quote by Hans Urs Von Balthasar
The Gospel quotes by Immanuel Kant
#99. What is more, we cannot do morality a worse service than by seeing to derive it from examples. Every example of it presented to me must first itself be judged by moral principles in order to decide if it is fit to serve as an original example...even the Holy One of the gospel must first be compared with our ideal of moral perfection before we can recognize him to be such. #Quote by Immanuel Kant
The Gospel quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#100. Here's one way I can know that I've forgotten the gospel of grace: when your sin bothers me more than my sin. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
The Gospel quotes by Philip Gulley
#101. Many false claims are made about God. They exact a heavy toll on people who believe every utterance from the pulpit must surely be the gospel truth. #Quote by Philip Gulley
The Gospel quotes by Boyd K. Packer
#102. The ultimate end of all activity in the Church is to see a husband and his wife and their children happy at home, protected by the principles and laws of the gospel, sealed safely in the covenants of the everlasting priesthood. Husbands and wives should understand that their first calling-from which they will never be released-is to one another and then to their children. #Quote by Boyd K. Packer
The Gospel quotes by Knut Hamsun
#103. I am not anyone to speak aloud of Adolf Hitler. His life and his actions do not invite sentimental emotions, because he was a warrior fighting for humanity, an apostle of the Gospel of the Rights of all peoples. He was a reformer of the highest rank. His historic destiny was to act in a time of unprecedented brutality, to which he eventually fell victim. So must any West European see Adolf Hitler. We, his followers, however, bow our heads before his disappearance. #Quote by Knut Hamsun
The Gospel quotes by Reinhard Bonnke
#104. If the disciples needed to be so endued and to preach the gospel with the Holy Spirit and with the manifestation of the Almighty, are we better than them able to carry on God's work without the empowerment they had? #Quote by Reinhard Bonnke
The Gospel quotes by Heber J. Grant
#105. What I count as real prosperity ... is the growth in a knowledge of God, and in a testimony, and in the power to live the gospel and to inspire our families to do the same. That is prosperity of the truest kind. #Quote by Heber J. Grant
The Gospel quotes by Martin Luther
#106. Hereby we may understand that God, of His special grace, maketh the teachers of the gospel subject to the Cross, and to all kinds of afflicitons, for the salvation of themselves and of the people; for otherwise they could by no means beat down this beast which is called vain-glory. #Quote by Martin Luther
The Gospel quotes by Marvin J. Ashton
#107. Certainly one of our God-given privileges is the right to choose what our attitude will be in any given set of circumstances. We can let the events that surround us determine our actions-or we can personally take charge and rule our lives, using as guidelines the principles of pure religion. Pure religion is learning the gospel of Jesus Christ and then putting it into action. Nothing will ever be of real benefit to us until it is incorporated into our own lives. #Quote by Marvin J. Ashton
The Gospel quotes by E. M. Bounds
#108. WE are constantly on a stretch, if not on a strain, to devise new methods, new plans, new organizations to advance the Church and secure enlargement and efficiency for the gospel. This trend of the day has a tendency to lose sight of the man or sink the man in the plan or organization. God's plan is to make much of the man, far more of him than of anything else. Men are God's method. The Church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better men. There was a man sent from God whose name was John. #Quote by E. M. Bounds
The Gospel quotes by Steve Timmis
#109. That is the gospel invitation: come into Christ, escape from judgement and enjoy great blessing. #Quote by Steve Timmis
The Gospel quotes by Matt Chandler
#110. When the people in a church dwell together in the unity of the gospel and together pursue the building up of one another in love, they are providing fertile soil for the roots of deep joy. But #Quote by Matt Chandler
The Gospel quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#111. The Americans of the United States do not let their dogs hunt the Indians as do the Spaniards in Mexico, but at bottom it is the same pitiless feeling which here, as everywhere else, animates the European race. This world here belongs to us, they tell themselves every day: the Indian race is destined for final destruction which one cannot prevent and which it is not desirable to delay. Heaven has not made them to become civilized; it is necessary that they die. Besides I do not want to get mixed up in it. I will not do anything against them: I will limit myself to providing everything that will hasten their ruin. In time I will have their lands and will be innocent of their death.
Satisfied with his reasoning, the American goes to church where he hears the minister of the gospel repeat every day that all men are brothers, and that the Eternal Being who has made them all in like image, has given them all the duty to help one another. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
The Gospel quotes by Michael R. Burch
#112. Donald Trump really is a fan of the Bible, except that it's far too long for him to read. So he just released a new, improved version, the Gospel According to Trump. It reads: "I, Donald Trump, am God. Praise, worship, and adore Me as I do Myself. Then all shall be Great, as I am Great. The End." #Quote by Michael R. Burch
The Gospel quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#113. The gospel doesn't just free you from what other people think about you, it frees you from what you think about yourself. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
The Gospel quotes by Thomas Boston
#114. Persuade yourselves, that the faith of the gospel is beyond the power of nature; that there is a necessity of a power from on high to bring you to believe. This will raze the old foundation, and cause you to look up for it. #Quote by Thomas Boston
The Gospel quotes by Henry Allen Ironside
#115. We are not preaching the Gospel of a dead Christ, but of a living Christ who sits exalted at the Father's right hand, and is living to save all who put their trust in Him. That is why those of us who really know the Gospel never have any crucifixes around our churches or in our homes. The crucifix represents a dead Christ hanging languid on a cross of shame. But we are not pointing men to a dead Christ; we are preaching a living Christ. He lives exalted at God's right hand, and He "saves to the uttermost all who come to God by Him." #Quote by Henry Allen Ironside
The Gospel quotes by Mark Driscoll
#116. We receive suffering when it comes as an opportunity for God to do something good in us and through us. We rejoice not in the pain but rather in what it can accomplish for the gospel so that something as costly as suffering is not wasted but used for God's glory, our joy, and others' good. #Quote by Mark Driscoll
The Gospel quotes by Timothy Keller
#117. We only fully grasp the gospel when we understand, as Paul did, that we are the worst sinner we know #Quote by Timothy Keller
The Gospel quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#118. It is a tragic and agonizing irony that instructions once delivered for the purpose of avoiding needless offense are now invoked in ways that needlessly offend, that words once meant to help draw people to the gospel now repel them. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
The Gospel quotes by George Whitefield
#119. Other men may preach the gospel better than I, but no man can preach a better gospel. #Quote by George Whitefield
The Gospel quotes by Aldous Huxley
#120. Work, the gospel of work, the sanctity of work, laborare est orare - all that tripe and nonsense. 'Work!' he once broke out contemptuously against the reasonable expostulations of Philip Quarles, 'work is no more respectable than alcohol, and it serves exactly the same purpose: it just distracts the mind, makes a man forget himself. Work's simply a drug, that's all. It's humiliating that men shouldn't be able to live without drugs, soberly; it's humiliating that they shouldn't have the courage to see the world and themselves as they really are. They must intoxicate themselves with work. It's stupid. The gospel of work's just a gospel of stupidity and funk. Work may be prayer; but it's also hiding one's head in the sand, it's also making such a din and a dust that a man can't hear himself speak or see his own hand before his face. It's hiding yourself from yourself. No wonder the Samuel Smileses and the big business men are such enthusiasts for work. Work gives them the comforting illusion of existing, even of being important. If they stopped working, they'd realize that they simply weren't there at all, most of them. Just holes in the air, that's all. Holes with perhaps a rather nasty smell in them. Most Smilesian souls must smell rather nasty, I should think. No wonder they daren't stop working. They might find out what they really are, or rather aren't. It's a risk they haven't the courage to take. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
The Gospel quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#121. The law repels, the gospel attracts. The law shows the distance which there is between God and man; the gospel bridges that awful chasm, and brings the sinner across it. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
The Gospel quotes by Henry Parry Liddon
#122. It is only Jesus Christ who has thrown light on life and immortality through the gospel; and because He has done so, and has enabled us by His atoning death and intercession to make the most of this discovery, His gospel is, for all who will, a power of God unto salvation. #Quote by Henry Parry Liddon
The Gospel quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#123. From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. JOHN 1:16 JUNE 14 Health and prosperity can be yours. I realize that you may regard this as a very extravagant assertion - a big order, so to speak; but please remember that I do not make this assertion on my own authority. I have this on the authority of the wisest Book ever written. The Bible isn't as fearful of promising big things as some of the more timid, halfhearted preachers of the gospel. The Bible makes superlative promises, because its promises are inspired by a loving and omnipotent God. But the Bible is also very subtle. And it points out that the blessings of health and prosperity are not easily given or easily received. Parenthetically, I want to say that by prosperity, the Bible does not mean merely material affluence; it means to enter abundantly into the blessings of God's grace. And it tells us that health and prosperity come to us when our soul is in harmony with #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
The Gospel quotes by Dorothy Day
#124. The Gospel takes away our right forever, to discriminate between the deserving and the undeserving poor. #Quote by Dorothy Day
The Gospel quotes by Tedd Tripp
#125. To do good to oppressors, however, to pray for those who mistreat you, to entrust yourself to the just Judge, requires a child to come face-to-face with the poverty of his own spirit and his need of the transforming power of the gospel. #Quote by Tedd Tripp
The Gospel quotes by R.C. Sproul
#126. The glory of the gospel is this: The one from whom we need to be saved is the one who has saved us. #Quote by R.C. Sproul
The Gospel quotes by James H. Cone
#127. The Gospel of liberation is bad news to all oppressors because they have defined their "freedom" in terms of slavery of others. #Quote by James H. Cone
The Gospel quotes by Robert Farrar Capon
#128. What role have I left for religion? None. And I have left none because the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ leaves none. Christianity is not a religion; it is the announcement of the end of religion. #Quote by Robert Farrar Capon
The Gospel quotes by John Piper
#129. The aim of the gospel is the creation of people who are passionate for doing good rather than settling for the passionless avoidance of evil. #Quote by John Piper
The Gospel quotes by Joseph Edward Kurtz
#130. Our Holy Father says every one of us is in need of conversion, beginning with ourselves. We are all in need of the grace of Jesus Christ to receive the Gospel. #Quote by Joseph Edward Kurtz

The Gospel quotes by Jared C. Wilson
#132. We forget that the kingdom does not come through political plotting but through the proclamation of the gospel. We stretch our branches to the wrong king. #Quote by Jared C. Wilson
The Gospel quotes by Richard A. Horsley
#133. Finally, a principal reason for the lack of attention to "unclean spirits" and Jesus' "acts of power" in the Gospel stories is surely the modern "scientific" frame of mind that developed in the wake of the Enlightenment reduction of reality to what was natural and comprehensible by reason. #Quote by Richard A. Horsley
The Gospel quotes by Heber J. Grant
#134. When we set our hearts upon the things of this world and fail to be strictly honest with the Lord, we do not grow in the light and power and strength of the gospel as we otherwise would do. #Quote by Heber J. Grant
The Gospel quotes by Martin Luther
#135. The gospel tells us who Christ is. Through it, we learn that he is our Savior. He delivers us from sin and death, helps us out of all misfortune, reconciles us to the Father, makes us godly, and saves us apart from our own works. Anyone who doesn't acknowledge Christ in this way will fail. For even if you already know that he is God's Son, that he died, rose again, and sits at the right hand of the Father, you still haven't known Christ in the right way. This knowledge doesn't help you. You also must know and believe that he has done all of this for your sake - in order to help you. #Quote by Martin Luther
The Gospel quotes by Stanley Hauerwas
#136. We Protestants automatically assume that the Pharisees are the Catholics. They are the self-righteous people who have made Christianity a form of legalistic religion, thereby destroying the free grace of the Gospel. We Protestants are the tax collectors, knowing that we are sinners and that our lives depend upon God's free grace. #Quote by Stanley Hauerwas
The Gospel quotes by Ronnie McBrayer
#137. The objective, according to Jesus, was not to get people inside of heaven, but to get heaven inside of people. An understanding of the gospel that concerns itself only with getting my own soul into heaven – damn this world, it's all going to burn anyway – falls miserably short of the revolutionary message of Jesus. Jesus did not come to live in your heart like an imaginary friend. He came to bring you into the kingdom that you might be a part of God's communal ministry of justice, grace, and mercy. #Quote by Ronnie McBrayer
The Gospel quotes by Kerry Weber
#138. But I make it in time for the Gospel, which in Catholic lore means that it still "counts". #Quote by Kerry Weber
The Gospel quotes by Brennan Manning
#139. Though lip service is paid to the gospel of grace, many Christians live as if only personal discipline and self-denial will mold the perfect me. The emphasis is on what I do rather than on what God is doing. In this curious process God is a benign old spectator in the bleachers who cheers when I show up for morning quiet time. #Quote by Brennan Manning
The Gospel quotes by Ronald Rolheiser
#140. Certain vocations, e.g., raising children, offer a perfect setting for living a contemplative life. They provide a desert for reflection, a real monastery. The mother who stays home with small children experiences a very real withdrawal from the world. Her existence is certainly monastic. Her tasks and preoccupations remove her from the centres of social life and from the centres of important power. She feels removed. Moreover, her constant contact with young children, the mildest of the mild, gives her a privileged opportunity to be in harmony with the mild and learn empathy and unselfishness. Perhaps more so even than the monk or the minister of the Gospel, she is forced, almost against her will, to mature. For years, while she is raising small children, her time is not her own, her own needs have to be put into second place, and every time she turns around some hand is reaching out demanding something. #Quote by Ronald Rolheiser
The Gospel quotes by Jayda Skidmore
#141. Jesus Christ is always there for you. He longs to aid you, He longs to be by your side, to help you through your struggles, to heal your aching heart and to mend your broken soul. He's standing there with His arms outstretched, waiting for you to come to Him so that He can comfort you and guide you and help you through the changes you may be experiencing. Change may be scary, but it can be a great thing. Christ and His Atonement have helped the blind to see, the deaf to hear, the lame to walk, the dead to live again, and the sinner to repent. Because of His love for us, we have a way to be cleansed and to change our hearts and our souls. As we strive to align our goals and desires with the principles of the Gospel, we will grow closer to our Father in Heaven and will understand more and more how we can live with Him again. #Quote by Jayda Skidmore

The Gospel quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#143. In the middle of [the] despair [of postwar Germany], my family learned about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints and the healing message of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. This message made all the difference; it lifted us above our daily misery. Life was still thorny and the circumstances still horrible, but the gospel brought light, hope, and joy into our lives. The plain and simple truths of the gospel warmed our hearts and enlightened our minds. They helped us look at ourselves and the world around us with different eyes and from an elevated viewpoint. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf

The Gospel quotes by Shlomo Sand
#149. the term "Land of Israel" was a later Christian and rabbinical invention that was theological, and by no means political in nature. Indeed, we can cautiously posit that the name first appeared in the New Testament in the Gospel of Matthew. #Quote by Shlomo Sand

The Gospel quotes by John Silber

The Gospel quotes by Archibald Marwizi
#152. The obvious signs of a brand gone wrong are the levels of negative headlines it consistently attracts. People talking about you for all the negative and wrong reasons. You begin to shoot yourself in the foot and you have become your own enemy. The gospel about you should be good enough to create relevance and significance - or rather to confirm that. #Quote by Archibald Marwizi
The Gospel quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#153. May I invite you to rise to the great potential within you. But don't reach beyond your capacity. Don't set goals beyond your capacity to achieve. Don't feel guilty or dwell on thoughts of failure. Don't compare yourself with others. Do the best you can, and the Lord will provide the rest. Have faith and confidence in Him, and you will see miracles happen in your life and the lives of your loved ones. The virtue of your own life will be a light to those who sit in darkness, because you are a living witness of the fulness of the gospel (see D&C 45:28). Wherever you have been planted on this beautiful but often troubled earth of ours, you can be the one to "succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees" (D&C 81:5). #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf

The Gospel quotes by Alana Terry
#157. Pray for the physical needs of those believers who have been dislocated and sent away from their homes, especially for families traveling with the young, the sick, and the elderly. Pray for the gospel to continue to spread even as believers are scattered because of persecution. Pray for Christians living in hostile areas to have wisdom as they decide whether to leave for a safer place, or to stay and preach the gospel where they are. #Quote by Alana Terry
The Gospel quotes by Pope Francis
#158. The disciple of Jesus gives up all he has, all his goods, because he has found in him the greatest Good from which every other good receives its full value and meaning: family bonds, other relationships, work, cultural and economic goods and so on ... The Christian detaches himself from everything and rediscovers all of it in the logic of the Gospel, the logic of love and service. #Quote by Pope Francis
The Gospel quotes by Matt Chandler
#159. Our churches must be fully centered on Jesus and His work, or else death and emptiness is certain, regardless of the worship style or sermon series. Without the gospel, everything in a church is meaningless. And dead. #Quote by Matt Chandler

The Gospel quotes by Catherine Booth

The Gospel quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#164. The Gospel is not merely a communication of things that can be known - it is one that makes things happen and is life-changing. The dark door of time, of the future, has been thrown open. The one who has hope lives differently; the one who hopes has been granted the gift of a new life. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
The Gospel quotes by Neal A. Maxwell
#165. He sees that only the gospel can really help us avoid the painful excesses in the tug-of-war between the need for liberty and the need for order. He knows, for instance, that true law enforcement depends on the policing of one's self. If the sentry of self fails, there are simply not enough other policemen to restrain those who will not restrain themselves, and beating the system will become the system. #Quote by Neal A. Maxwell
The Gospel quotes by Heber J. Grant
#166. There stand out in my life many incidents in my youth, of wonderful inspiration and power through men preaching the gospel in the spirit of testimony and prayer. #Quote by Heber J. Grant
The Gospel quotes by Ann Voskamp
#167. And I see what I am. I'm amputated. I have hacked my life up into grace moments and curse moments. The chopping that has cut myself off from the embracing love of a God who "does not enjoy hurting people or causing them sorrow" (Lamentations 3:33), but labors to birth grief into greater grace. Isn't this the crux of the gospel? The good news that all those living in the land of shadow of death have been birthed into new life, that the transfiguration of a suffering #Quote by Ann Voskamp

#169. The gospel we preach must not be just something we hear from men or read from books or even conceived through our meditation. Unless it is delivered to us by God, it can serve no spiritual utility. #Quote by Watchman Nee
The Gospel quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#170. The good news of the gospel [for sufferers] is not an exhortation from above to 'hang on at all costs,' or 'grin and bear it' in the midst of hardship. No, the good news is that God is hanging on to you, and in the end, when all is said and done, the power of God will triumph over every pain and loss. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian

The Gospel quotes by Richard J. Foster
#172. Our lifestyle is not our private affair. We dare not allow each person to do what is right in his or her own eyes. The Gospel demands more of us: it is obligatory upon us to help one another hammer out the shape of Christian simplicity in the midst of modern affluence. #Quote by Richard J. Foster

The Gospel quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#176. It is true that every day has its own evil, and its good too. But how difficult must life be, especially farther on when the evil of each day increases as far as worldly things go, if it is not strengthened and comforted by faith. And in Christ all worldly things may become better, and, as it were, sanctified. Theo, woe is me if I do not preach the Gospel; if I did not aim at that and possess faith and hope in Christ, it would be bad for me indeed, but no I have some courage. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
The Gospel quotes by Richard Rohr
#177. Individualism has taken away the credibility of the Gospel in the western world because we think we can seek our private freedom - independently of others. But genuine evangelization must move forward on two rails. We must simultaneously evangelize individuals, calling them to freedom, and evangelize institutions, nations, and systems, calling them to conversion. If you do the first, you'll be called a saint ; if you do the second, you'll be called a communist or a revolutionary. And for this reason most of us remain safely on the first side. Few of us are ready for full freedom in Christ. We want the freedom of Christ only so long as they don't take our "swine" away from us and we can live comfortably "among the tombs #Quote by Richard Rohr

#178. The precepts of the Gospel were universally the obligations of Masonry. #Quote by William Howard Taft
The Gospel quotes by David A. Bednar
#179. I believe the time has come for us as disciples of Christ to use these inspired tools appropriately and more effectively to testify of God the Eternal Father, His plan of happiness for His children, and His Son, Jesus Christ, as the Savior of the world; to proclaim the reality of the Restoration of the gospel in the latter days; and to accomplish the Lord's work. #Quote by David A. Bednar
The Gospel quotes by Francis Scott Key
#180. Nothing but Christianity will give you the victory. Until a man believes in his heart that Jesus Christ is his Lord and Master ... his course through life will be neither safe nor pleasant. My only regret is that I was so long blinded by my pleasures, my vices and pursuits, and the examples of others that I was kept fr ... om seeing, admiring, and adoring the marvelous light of the gospel. #Quote by Francis Scott Key
The Gospel quotes by Sarah Bessey
#181. Our big and good God is at work in the world, and we have been invited to participate fully - however God has gifted and equipped and called each of us. One needn't identify as a feminist to participate in the redemptive movement of God for women in the world. The gospel is more than enough. Of course it is! But as long as I know how important maternal health is to Haiti's future, and as long as I know that women are being abused and raped, as long as I know girls are being denied life itself through selective abortion, abandonment, and abuse, as long as brave little girls in Afghanistan are attacked with acid for the crime of going to school, and until being a Christian is synonymous with doing something about these things, you can also call me a feminist.23 #Quote by Sarah Bessey
The Gospel quotes by Horatius Bonar
#182. The more fully that the gospel is preached, in the grand old apostolic way, the more likely is it to accomplish the results which it did in the apostolic days. #Quote by Horatius Bonar
The Gospel quotes by Terry Virgo
#183. Remember God has accepted us. The gospel of grace is a message of breathtaking freedom. It must be embraced with faith and thanksgiving. You are thoroughly accepted just as you are. Jesus Christ is your righteousness and he is never going to change. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. When you wake tomorrow, he will still be your righteousness, before you have done anything to enjoy God's favour. You have to earn nothing. Your spirit needs to bask in the brilliant sunlight of this reality. You need to know it inwardly and celebrate it on a daily basis. #Quote by Terry Virgo
The Gospel quotes by Max Scheler
#184. The precepts "Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, bless them that curse you" ... are born from the Gospel's profound spirit of individualism, which refuses to let one's own actions and conduct depend in any way on somebody else's acts. The Christian refuses to let his acts be mere reactions - such conduct would lower him to the level of his enemy. The act is to grow organically from the person, "as the fruit from the tree." ... What the Gospel demands is not a reaction which is the reverse of the natural reaction, as if it said: "Because he strikes you on the cheek, tend the other" - but a rejection of all reactive activity, of any participation in common and average ways of acting and standards of judgment. #Quote by Max Scheler
The Gospel quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#185. The gospel of becoming a good believer cripples believers #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
The Gospel quotes by Michael S. Horton
#186. Start with Christ (that is, the gospel) and you get sanctification in the bargain; begin with Christ and move on to something else, and you lose both. #Quote by Michael S. Horton
The Gospel quotes by Abigail Washburn
#187. I sang in a reggae band. And then there was a soul band where I sang back-up vocals and some lead. And I was also in a women's a capella group. And I was in the gospel choir at school. Actually, I've always been in choirs. Or some kind of group. Just because I love singing so much. But I truthfully never thought of it as a career. #Quote by Abigail Washburn
The Gospel quotes by J.C. Ryle
#188. The Gospel which we possess was not given to us only to be admired, talked of, and professed - but to be practiced. #Quote by J.C. Ryle
The Gospel quotes by Matt Chandler
#189. He later came to love. Then God hijacked his life. The zealous Pharisee became the apostle with the gospeled heart. So of course he would say, "To live is Christ." In the logic of the gospel, there are no alternatives to Christ. Every other #Quote by Matt Chandler
The Gospel quotes by Reinhard Bonnke
#190. The Gospel is not reformation, decoration or renovation. It is liberation. #Quote by Reinhard Bonnke
The Gospel quotes by J.C. Ryle
#191. You may spoil the Gospel by substitution. You have only to withdraw from the eyes of the sinner the grand object which the Bible proposes to faith, - Jesus Christ; and to substitute another object in His place, - the Church, the Ministry, the Confessional, Baptism or the Lord's Supper, - and the mischief is done. Substitute anything for Christ, and the Gospel is totally spoiled! Do this, either directly or indirectly, and your religion ceases to be Evangelical. #Quote by J.C. Ryle
The Gospel quotes by Gerd-Rainer Horn
#192. But what is Pacem in Terris's most important contribution in the context of the genesis of Gaudium et Spesis its repeated recourse to'the signs of the times' as measures and tools with which to comprehend the reality of a constantly changing world. The innovation of this approach lies in its implied recommendation to study in all seriousness contemporary reality and society in order to determine in which way the values of the Gospel have materialized in today's world. Rather than relying on pre-established and traditional doctrine to judge present-day reality, Catholic believers are enjoined to place trust in investigatory methods that could be described as sociological, historical, and anthropological, before making value judgements on the phenomena of today's world #Quote by Gerd-Rainer Horn
The Gospel quotes by Joyce Meyer
#193. If I'm a blessing to you, then either God will put it on your heart to bless me, or he'll use somebody else to bless me. If I'm friendly with you, then I'll have friends. If I'm merciful with people, the Bible says I'll get mercy back. If I'm not judgmental, then people won't be judgmental with me. And it works also with finances. If you give to help other hurting people and you give to the preaching of the gospel, because you love God, then God takes care of you. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
The Gospel quotes by Timothy Keller
#194. The Gospel is this: You're more sinful, evil and weak than you'd ever believe. But you're more valued, accepted and loved than you dared hope. #Quote by Timothy Keller
The Gospel quotes by Timothy Keller
#195. Ministry. Sadly, there has never been a city on earth that is not saturated with human sin and corruption. Indeed, to paraphrase a Woody Allen joke, cities are just like everywhere else, only much more so. They are both better and worse, both easier and harder to live in, both more inspiring and oppressive, than other places. As redemptive history unfolds, we begin to see how the tension of the city will be resolved. The turn in the relationship between the people of God and the pagan city becomes a key aspect of God's plan to bless the nations and redeem the world. In the New Testament, we find cities playing an important role in the rapid growth of the early church and in spreading the gospel message of God's salvation. #Quote by Timothy Keller
The Gospel quotes by Heber J. Grant
#196. No matter in what land we may dwell the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ makes us brothers and sisters, interested in each other, eager to understand and know each other. #Quote by Heber J. Grant
The Gospel quotes by Timothy Keller
#197. But the gospel, brought home to your heart by the Spirit, can make you happy enough to be humble, giving you an internal fullness that frees you to be generous with the other even when you are not getting the satisfaction you want out of the relationship. Without the help of the Spirit, without a continual refilling of your soul's tank with the glory and love of the Lord, such submission to the interests of the other is virtually impossible to accomplish for any length of time without becoming resentful. #Quote by Timothy Keller
The Gospel quotes by Pastor Rod W. Larkins
#198. The Gospel is not a message of words, but an invitation to encounters. #Quote by Pastor Rod W. Larkins
The Gospel quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#199. Do not be afraid of seeming different and being criticized for what might seem to be losing or out of fashion; your peers but adults too, especially those who seem more distant from the mindset and values of the Gospel, are crying out to see someone who dares to live according to the fullness of humanity revealed by Jesus Christ. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
The Gospel quotes by Matt Chandler
#200. Trying to make the Gospel relevant is like trying to make water wet. #Quote by Matt Chandler

The Gospel quotes by Sarah Bessey
#213. I think it's misguided, and probably profane, to look at a diverse collection of books written over thousands of years - history, poetry, law, Gospel accounts, proverbs, correspondence, and other writings - as absolute literal instructions without context, as we understand them, in all cases. #Quote by Sarah Bessey
The Gospel quotes by Jazmine Sullivan
#214. I guess when I got into my preteens, I turned about 12 and I decided to sing R&B, because I felt like one day there were some things I felt like I would want to say, that I couldn't say with gospel music. #Quote by Jazmine Sullivan
The Gospel quotes by Timothy Keller

The Gospel quotes by Casey Johnson

The Gospel quotes by David Levithan

The Gospel quotes by Jared C. Wilson
#226. I am plum tuckered on Monday morning. I face ample temptation to wallow. But Jesus promises rest. I may be a shell of a pastor at this time each week, but God is no less God. His might is no less mighty. His gospel is no less power. His reach is no less infinite. His grace is no less everlasting. His lovingkindness is no less enduring. #Quote by Jared C. Wilson

The Gospel quotes by Jonathan Douglas Duran
#228. When she spoke, her voice sang as if a thousand different religions had crawled into her throat to die. All faiths scrambled to rewrite their holy books, recomposing them to abet her every urge. All words she pronounced became gospel, every tremble of her flesh a great crusade against all non-believers. #Quote by Jonathan Douglas Duran
The Gospel quotes by Timothy Keller
#229. It is one thing to have a ministry that is gospel believing and even gospel proclaiming but quite another to have one that is gospel centered. #Quote by Timothy Keller
