Aimee Semple McPherson, also known as Sister Aimee, was an evangelist and a pastor who served God through the power of the radio. She inspired countless people to come to faith in Jesus Christ, using the power of media and the sincerity of her voice. Here are my top 10 favorite quotes from Aimee Semple McPherson:

“The Lord still lives today. His power has never abated. His Word has never changed. The things He did in Bible days, He still lives to do today. Not a burden is there He cannot bear nor a fetter He cannot break.”

“Even so today, though it means being despised and misunderstood, get alone in the wilderness of quiet and stillness before God. Seek His face till your soul is kindled with the flames of love from the burning bush.”

“With God, I can do all things! But with God and you, and the people who you can interest, by the grace of God, we’re gonna cover the world!”

“What is my task? First of all, my task is to be pleasing to Christ. To be empty of self and be filled with Himself. To be filled with the Holy Spirit; to be led by the Holy Spirit.”

“O Hope! Dazzling, radiant Hope! What a change thou bringest to the hopeless; brightening the darkened paths, and cheering the lonely way.”

“Lift up your heads, ye people, lift up your faces, too. Open your mouths to sing His praise, and the rain will fall on you.”

“I ponder and pray in the stillness, I dream as a dreamer of dreams. A steepled church stands before me — a church with open doors. Within it I see the preacher stand; hear his voice in earnest call. But ’tis the throng that flows through the street outside that holds my anxious gaze.”

“And my task, as I see it, is to interest you folks to help me, to help them, to join the line right around the whole world! Not only to help the heathen abroad, but to help the heathen in Los Angeles. In America, too. By God’s grace, if we can see our task and join hands and get together, we can spread the gospel around the world. ”

“All at once my hands and arms began to tremble gently at first, then more and more, until my whole body was atremble with the power … Almost without my notice my body slipped gently to the floor, and I was lying under the power of God, but felt as though caught up and floating.”

“It’s for your good! You have no business being sick – everyone of you should get well and get up and go to work, huh? Get up and go to work and earn some money and help send the gospel out! Amen!”
