Some Great Quotes

I was on the web the other day and found some great quotes, most of which are about missions and evangelism:

"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose."
- Jim Elliot

"God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supplies."
- J. Hudson Taylor

"If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him." - C.T. Studd

"Do not think me mad. It is not to make money that I believe a Christian should live. The noblest thing a man can do is, just humbly to receive, and then go amongst others and give." - David Livingstone

"How little chance the Holy Spirit has nowadays. The churches and missionary societies have so bound him in red tape that they practically ask Him to sit in a corner while they do the work themselves." - C.T. Studd

"Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God." - William Carey

"We who have Christ's eternal life need to throw away our own lives."
- George Verwer

"The command has been to "go," but we have stayed - in body, gifts, prayer and influence. He has asked us to be witnesses unto the uttermost parts of the earth… But 99% of Christians have kept puttering around in the homeland."
- Robert Savage

"Here am I. Send me." - Isaiah

"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." - Count Zinzindorf
