More Bits Of Leonard Ravenhill

For I Am Not AshamedLeonard Ravenhill will never be counted among the passive or the neutral in the Church. His passion for evangelism and revival continue to ring from each quote below even though he now counts heaven as his home. The Church is just beginning to wake up–it needs to wake up–all across our country. In recent decades, we have lost any impact on the culture we live in and it is evident everywhere we look. No longer is the Church “salt” that preserves our culture. We have become a “comfort club” that affects few around us. Let these “Bits Of” Leonard Ravenhill be a call to action for all of us. There are those who will be lost for all eternity if we do not wake up and do the job Jesus Christ called us to do.

“Today’s church wants to be raptured from responsibility.”

“The world has lost the power to blush over its vice; the Church has lost her power to weep over it.”

“Many of us are hunting mice – while lions devour the land.”

“How can you pull down strongholds of Satan if you don’t even have the strength to turn off your TV?”

“That world outside there is not waiting for a new definition of Christianity, it’s waiting for a new demonstration of Christianity.”

“When there’s something in the Bible that churches don’t like, they call it ‘legalism.”

“The Church used to be a lifeboat rescuing the perishing. Now she is a cruise ship recruiting the promising.”

“You can have all of your doctrines right – yet still not have the presence of God.”

“Our seminaries today are turning out dead men.”

“Could a mariner sit idle if he heard the drowning cry? Could a doctor sit in comfort and just let his patients die? Could a fireman sit idle, let men burn and give no hand? Can you sit at ease in Zion with the world around you damned?”

“Today Christians spend more money on dog food than missions.”

“Our God is a consuming fire. He consumes pride, lust, materialism, and other sin.”

“A man may study because his brain is hungry for knowledge, even Bible knowledge. But he prays because his soul is hungry for God.”

“No man – I don’t care how colossal his intellect – No man is greater than his prayer life.”

“A popular evangelist reaches your emotions. A true prophet reaches your conscience.”
