John G. Lake On The Glory of God, Christ, And The Faith

Evangelist and author John G. Lake believed in the glory of God, never lost sight of our Savior Jesus Christ, and always had a thoughtful word of wisdom to share with his fellow believers. Whether it is on the truth of the Gospel, the power of God, or the divine nature of Christ, here are my top 10 quotes from John G. Lake: 

“Science is the discovery of how God does things.”

“In those early centuries of Christianity, Christianity did not go into the world apologizing. It went to slay the powers of darkness and undo the works of the devil, and it lived in holy triumph.”

“There is a baptism that belongs to Jesus. It is in His supreme control. No angel or man can bestow it. It comes from Him alone.”

“The purpose of Jesus is not only to save men from their sins, but by the grace of God to begin in the souls of men that marvelous development in the nature and mind and understanding of God our Father, until by the grace of God we are able to take our place and our part in the kingdom of Jesus Christ and bear our share of responsibility.”

“The glory of God is as destructive of evil as it is creative of good.”

“We have run into false theology, we have run into “churchianity” and human interpretations, and a hundred other follies, but friends, it is a perfectly lovely and refreshing thing to get back to Jesus.”

“Jesus did not heal the sick in order to coax them to be Christians. He healed because it was His nature to heal.”

“The great majority of the Christian world is still weeping at the foot of the cross. The consciousness of man is fixed on the Christ Who died, not the Christ Who LIVES. They are looking back to the Redeemer Who was, not the redeemer who IS.”

“Fear of the devil is nonsense. Fear of demons is foolish. The Spirit of God anointing the Christian heart makes the soul impregnable to the powers of darkness.”

“Men tell us in these days that sin is what you think it is. Well, it is not. Sin is what God thinks it is. You may think according to your own conscience. God thinks according to His.”
