Adoniram Judson “A. J.” Gordon (August 9, 1788 – April 12, 1850) was a preacher, writer, and songwriter who always taught about the truth of the Gospels. Becoming a Christian at the young age of fifteen, he would become a dedicated member of the faith who not only worked to prove the truth of Jesus Christ but would compose music to celebrate it. Here are my top 10 favorite quotes from A.J. Gordon:
“The future is as bright as the promises of God.”
“There is no success without sacrifice. If you succeed without sacrifice it is because someone has suffered before you. If you sacrifice without success it is because someone will succeed after.”
“If I had not felt certain that every additional trial was ordered by infinite love and mercy, I could not have survived my accumulated suffering.”
“The motto for every missionary, whether preacher, printer, or schoolmaster, ought to be ‘Devoted for Life.'”
“It is true that we may desire much more. But let us use what we have, and God will give us more.”
“After many painful trials, which none can know, but those who are taught to relinquish a system in which they had been educated, I settled down in the full persuasion, that the immersion of a professing believer in Christ is the only Christian baptism.”
“A true disciple inquires not whether a fact is agreeable to his own reason. His pride has yielded to the divine testimony.”
“I feel it is my duty to plod on, while daylight shall last.”
“God answers all true prayer, either in kind or in kindness.”
“If God gave light and wisdom, the religion of Jesus was soon learned; but without God, a man might study all his life long, and make no proficiency.”
