Count Nicolaus Zinzendorf: “I have but one passion”

Bishop Nikolaus Ludwig (26 May 1700 – 9 May 1760) was a German scholar, social reformer, theologian, and bishop of the Moravian Church who helped shaped many beliefs of the Protestant Church to this day. His hymns and teachings hold a special place. Here are my top 10 favorite quotes from him:

“I have but one passion: It is He, it is He alone. The world is the field and the field is the world; and henceforth that country shall be my home where I can be most used in winning souls for Christ.”

“I am destined to proclaim the message, unmindful of personal consequences to myself.”

“There can be no Christianity without community.”

“Preach the gospel, die and be forgotten. ”

“Missions, after all, is simply this: Every heart with Christ is a missionary, every heart without Christ is a mission field.”

“Jesus, Thy blood and righteousness, my beauty are, my glorious dress; Midst flaming worlds in these arrayed, with joy shall I lift up my head.”

“We will work simply and quietly. Even if we never see wonders with our own eyes or hear them with our ears, we are planting the kingdom of heaven into the nations and will look for the fruit which grows from it.”

“We have desire, to prepare souls to Jesus, in all sects and constitutions.”

“I am not my own today. I belong to another. I have been bought with a price. And I will live every moment of this day so that the Great Purchaser of my soul will receive the full reward of His suffering.”

“Jesus, still lead on,
Till our rest be won!
And although the way be cheerless,
We will follow calm and fearless;
Guide us by Thy hand
To our fatherland!”
