A. B. Simpson

The sanctified body is one whose hands are clean. The stain of dishonesty is not on them, the withering blight of ill-gotten gain has not blistered them, the mark of violence is not found upon them. They have been separated from every occupation that could displease God or injure a fellow-man.

A. B. Simpson

There are two ways of getting out of a trial. One is simply to try to get rid of the trial, and be thankful when it is over. The other is to recognize the trial as a challenge from God to claim a larger blessing than we have ever had, and to hail it with delight as an opportunity of obtaining a larger measure of divine grace.

A. B. Simpson

As long as you want anything very much, especially more than you want God, it is an idol.

A. B. Simpson

The true Church of Jesus Christ will never be overwhelmed by the world. The waters may swirl around us, but the Lord has promised to build His Church and keep it strong until He returns. One thing must be avoided at all costs. We must not let the world seep into the Church. When we let the world dilute our Gospel and water down our values, we'll disappear from sight. Let's keep the Church holy - and wholly committed to Scripture. The chief danger of the Church today is that it's trying to get on the same side as the world, instead of trying to turn the world upside down.

A. B. Simpson

It is all right when God sends us the approval of our fellow men; however, we must never make that approval a motive in our life.

By Anonym 15 Sep

A. B. Simpson

There is no wonder more supernatural and divine in the life of a believer than the mystery and ministry of prayer...the hand of the child touching the arm of the Father and moving the wheel of the universe.

By Anonym 14 Sep

A. B. Simpson

Pray, always pray; when sickness wastes thy frame, Prayer brings the healing power of Jesus' name.

By Anonym 14 Sep

A. B. Simpson

The Bible stands apart from all other books, and has survived and will survive all the attacks of its enemies. It is like the electric torch that shines over the water of New York Bay, struck by the wing of many a seabird that dashes against it in its reckless flight, but still shining on unmoved while the foolish and reckless assailant falls bleeding and wounded at its feet. It is an anvil which has worn out many a hammer of hostile criticism, while the anvil still remains unshaken amid the wreck of all that have assailed it.

A. B. Simpson

God is not looking for extraordinary characters as His instruments, but He is looking for humble instruments through whom He can be honored throughout the ages.

By Anonym 15 Sep

A. B. Simpson

Warning: we may become so enamored with God's good gifts that we fail to worship the Giver.

By Anonym 14 Sep

A. B. Simpson

Let us honor the Holy Ghost.

By Anonym 15 Sep

A. B. Simpson

You will have no test of faith that will not fit you to be a blessing if you are obedient to the Lord. I never had a trial but when I got out of the deep river I found some poor pilgrim on the bank that I was able to help by that very experience.

By Anonym 14 Sep

A. B. Simpson

May God so fill us today with the heart of Christ that we may glow with the divine fire of holy desire.

By Anonym 14 Sep

A. B. Simpson

Prayer is the link that connects us with God.

By Anonym 18 Sep

A. B. Simpson

The heart of Christ is not only the heart of a man but has in it also the tenderness and gentleness of a woman. Jesus was not a man in the rigid sense of manhood as distinct from womanhood, but, as the Son of Man, the complete Head of Humanity.

By Anonym 14 Sep

A. B. Simpson

Our God has boundless resources. The only limit is in us. Our asking, our thinking, our praying are too small. Our expectations are too limited.

By Anonym 13 Sep

A. B. Simpson

A friend ... said, "You were healed by faith." "Oh, no," I said, "I was healed by Christ." What is the difference? There is a great difference. There came a time when even faith seemed to come between me and Jesus. I thought I should have to work up the faith, so I laboured to get the faith. At last I thought I had it; that if I put my whole weight upon it, it would hold. I said, when I thought I had got the faith, "Heal me." I was trusting in myself, in my own heart, in my own faith. I was asking the Lord to do something for me because of something in me, not because of something in Him.

A. B. Simpson

Fear is born of Satan, and if we would only take time to think a moment we would see that everything Satan says is founded upon a falsehood.

By Anonym 13 Sep

A. B. Simpson

By Anonym 13 Sep

A. B. Simpson

God does not so much want us to do things as to let people see what He can do.

By Anonym 14 Sep

A. B. Simpson

The chief danger of the Church today is that it is trying to get on the same side as the world, instead of turning the world upside down. Our Master expects us to accomplish results, even if they bring opposition and conflict. Anything is better than compromise, apathy, and paralysis.  God give to us an intense cry for the old-time power of the Gospel and the Holy Ghost!

By Anonym 15 Sep

A. B. Simpson

We must surrender ourselves so utterly that we can never own ourselves again. We must hand over self and all its rights in an eternal covenant, and give God the absolute right to own us, control us and possess us forever.

By Anonym 14 Sep

A. B. Simpson

Often we want people to pray for us and help us, but we always defeat our object when we look too much to them and lean upon them. The true secret of union is for both to look upon God, and in the act of looking past themselves to Him they are unconsciously united.

By Anonym 13 Sep

A. B. Simpson

God requires no person to spend his or her life reiterating the gospel to people who will not receive it. He wants everyone to have an opportunity to hear. Then He would have us move on to other areas. The mistake of the church has been that she sits down to convert all the people in one country to the neglect of the great masses who have never had the chance to hear the gospel - not even once!

Christ rises above all things.

By Anonym 14 Sep

A. B. Simpson

The difference between human heroes and sacred characters lies just in this: the man is just a man, but behind the man of God, God Himself is ever standing greater than the man and overshadowing him by His infinite and glorious presence.

By Anonym 13 Sep

A. B. Simpson

All that God requires of us is an opportunity to show what He can do.

By Anonym 13 Sep

A. B. Simpson

By Anonym 13 Sep

A. B. Simpson

A. B. Simpson

Be brave. Cowards always get hurt. Brave men generally come out unharmed.

By Anonym 15 Sep

A. B. Simpson

We must learn to live on the heavenly side and look at things from above. To contemplate all things as God sees them, as Christ beholds them, overcomes sin, defies Satan, dissolves perplexities, lifts us above trials, separates us from the world and conquers fear of death.

By Anonym 14 Sep

A. B. Simpson

One bright and thankful look at the cross is worth a thousand morbid, self-condemning reflections.

By Anonym 13 Sep

A. B. Simpson

Christ is not a reservoir but a spring. His life is continual, active and ever passing on with an outflow as necessary as its inflow. If we do not perpetually draw the fresh supply from the living Fountain, we shall either grow stagnant or empty, It is, therefore, not so much a perpetual fullness as a perpetual filling.

By Anonym 14 Sep

A. B. Simpson

Pray, always pray; beneath sins heaviest load, Prayer claims the blood from Jesus' side that flowed. Pray, always pray; though weary, faint, and lone, Prayer nestles by the Father's sheltering throne.

By Anonym 14 Sep

A. B. Simpson

I would rather play with forked lightning, or take in my hand living wires with their fiery current, than to speak a reckless word against any servant of Christ, or idly repeat the slanderous darts which thousands of Christians are hurling on others, to the hurt of their own souls and bodies.

By Anonym 15 Sep

A. B. Simpson

We begin life with the natural, next we come into the spiritual; but then, when we have truly received the kingdom of God and His righteousness, the natural is added to the spiritual, and we are able to receive the gifts of His providence and the blessings of life without becoming centered in them or allowing them to separate us from Him.

By Anonym 14 Sep

A. B. Simpson

Once a leader delegates, he should show utmost confidence in the people he has entrusted.

By Anonym 15 Sep

A. B. Simpson

The Holy Spirit is just as truly in us when He makes no sign as when the fountains of joy are overflowing, or the waters of peace are softly refreshing our weary and troubled heart.

By Anonym 13 Sep

A. B. Simpson

Begin to rejoice in the Lord, and your bones will flourish like an herb, and your cheeks will glow with the bloom of health and freshness. Worry, fear, distrust, care-all are poisonous! Joy is balm and healing, and if you will but rejoice, God will give power.
