TESTIMONIES

May your hearts be encouraged with mine as you read the marvelous and multifaceted ways our Lord has used the “Grace Quotes” ministry to inspire, encourage, instruct, assist and strengthen His people whom He deeply loves. All praise is reflected back to the One who is truly worthy and makes all things possible! “To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever” (Rev. 5:13).

The Bible says in Prov. 13:20, “Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise.” We can walk with the wise men and women of God from the past, of course, by reading what they’ve written. This website has extracted some of the most insightful words penned by some of the Lord’s wisest saints. Read and grow wise.

I just wanted to write a quick note to express my gratitude for Grace Quotes. As an avid collector and distributor of quotes, I’ve found it an invaluable resource. I’ve looked at hundreds of them and have yet to find one that isn’t completely biblical – rather the exception as it comes to quote collections. Thank you for the long labor of love for the church. Thank you for making it publicly available. It has been, and continues to be, a great blessing.

-Tim Challies

Before today, I didn’t know who put together the great quotes on your website. Each week, I glean a couple of quotes, often from your site, for our weekly worship guide. Now I know the source! Thanks so much for the resources you put together, especially the quotes! If you are ever in Illinois, lunch will be on me!

-Pastor James McDonald

Grace Quotes is a great Repository of Christian Quotes!

– Eric Johnson

I really appreciate the work you do. Thank you so much!!!

-Angeline Watson

I’m a pastor and have tons of my own quotes in files. Often though, I can’t find just the right quote. Your page has been so helpful on that. So I just wanted to write you and thank you for making that resource available. It is truly a blessing!! May God bless you for your work on behalf of His Kingdom!! In His Grace.

-Pastor Scott Carson

Just ran across your web site and the incredible volume of quotes many of which seem to be in the reformed tradition. Thanks for posting these…don’t know that I’ve seen a better resource.

-Todd Whirley

Thank you as ALWAYS for this daily inspiration and for the wonderful Bible teaching ministry!! God bless you with abundant grace and joy this day and every!

-Joseph Greenberg

I just wanted to finally write and tell you how much I appreciate your Grace Quotes site. I use it with each new series that I write, when in need of a quote along the lines of the series’ topic. Just today, I went to “Pride – Dangers” and found what I was wanting to insert for an upcoming series. Keep up the great work. It’s a valuable site.

-David Sparks

Today I have found this treasure trove while reading and researching some bible subjects. I thank God for such a valuable spiritual deposits being kept and administered by people like you all in the ministry. Please add me with your mailing list. Mean time please keep us and the tribal ministries in India in your prayers. May His name be glorified in all.

-Samuel Pappy (India)

I [have] exceedingly enjoyed your Grace Quotes page as a resource for many purposes. I competed in the NCFCA league under the category of apologetics, using many GraceQuote quotes in my speeches. Today as I scanned the topics looking for an appropriate quote for a card that I am writing to my sister’s father-in-law, the topic of “love” caught my eye. The Lord has been teaching me the lesson of how to love Him, my family and especially, other Christians in a biblical way, I found the quotes on love to be vastly encouraging, pointing me to not grow weary in doing good, as I have been doing, but to press on. The quotes on Love’s vulnerability were very encouraging, reminding me that indeed to love biblically is to love vulnerably and that means making yourself a target to be hurt. I [have] been so encouraged by this great resource. Thank you and I hope this little note is an encouragement to you!

-Tabitha C. Mello

I have used your Grace Quotes as a resource in sermons, devotionals and teaching for some time now.  I wanted to thank you for this valuable resource and pray the LORD will continue to bless your ministry.

-Pastor Tony Thomas

Thank you for accumulating so many great quotes. I use them every week to supplement my sermons. I have also passed the link on to other Pastors and friends. Blessings in the Risen Lamb of God.

-Pastor Mike  Murray

I have come to appreciate Grace Quotes and find something valuable there almost every day. Thank you for this ministry. Blessings!

-Scott MacDonald

It just struck me when I was reading it that, aside from how convicting/encouraging the quotes are in general, they’re usually so tied in with/reinforcing of what your current sermon topic is. With that thought it dawned on me how much more behind-the-scenes effort (than we’re all aware of) it must take to make this ministry as effective as it is as you not only screen and categorize all your quotes but you also carefully select them for each week. I know it’s one more thing in addition to all that you already do at Grace… I wanted to let you know that the Grace Quotes ministry is such an encouragement, a useful teaching tool, and a great daily reminder of how to pursue holiness in our lives. These quotes also really touch on some of the more underlying areas of sin in our lives that often go unnoticed by ourselves and aren’t within the usual areas addressed in most typical Sunday morning sermons, so it’s great to get these little daily “challenges”, if you will, to examine our hearts and lives. Thanks so much for all your effort in choosing these quotes – they’re such a blessing!

-Tammy Fossa

Dear Pastor, Thank you very much for your letter about quotations from my father’s book [Martyn Lloyd-Jones]. I am very happy that you should use them – or any from his other books – and hope that they will be of help to God’s people. May the Lord bless you in all you do.

-Elizabeth Catherwood

Thank you for this ministry. The quotes often bring blessing and encouragement. I enjoy sharing them with our church family.

-Pastor Dan Bunge

You have a great website, I use your Grace Quotes a lot for myself to learn from, to use in my writing and just for everyday use. God bless you!

-John VanWoerden

I really use this collection often. I  visit this section almost every week and use your quotes frequently in my Sunday School lesson. Great education just reading what some great men of God have to say on a subject. I really appreciate this collection of quotes.

-Don Greenfield

I really enjoy the quotes, and had written you in the past to let you know that they ministered to me. I am a bi-vocational pastor and have shared your quotes from time to time in my messages. I wish for you all, what you already have: Christ and all the treasures of the Gospel. May He be more to you and may you be more of His. May you hear the music of the Gospel and not just the words. May He be so chief among the ten-thousand, that you find yourself saying, “What ten-thousand?” May He be your shield and your exceeding, abounding, over-flowing, great reward!

-Pastor Shawn Smith

Thanks so much, Pastor! You have no idea what a tremendous blessing all your work into doing this has been to me & my FB “friends”. May the Lord richly bless you!

-Mike Wilbur

Thank you. I tweet these quotes regularly. One of the best collections of doctrinally sound quotes I’ve ever come across.

-Jeffrey Lyle

Pastor, Of all the sites offering quotations, yours is the best. I cannot imagine how many hours you have expended to establish such a helpful resource for pastors and teachers. I have been a pastor for 52 years and purchased illustration books through the years seeking a way to make clear some particular truth, and some of them were helpful to a degree, but nothing like this. The rich quotations of God’s preachers and teachers are delightful just to read. Obviously you are a well read man. I am rambling, but I could not pass up the opportunity to say “thank you” for your labor of love. Where I am concerned it has not been in vain. Again, God bless you for sharing your labors with so many.

-Pastor Jim Stallings

Pastor, Thanks for taking the time to put up the quotes on the web. I get free texts with my phone contract and have been sending out 40 daily using many from the web site. I even use some for my status on facebook. This ministry is having a ripple effect and you will not know this side of eternity what the effects will be. Pass on my thanks to others in the web team. Yours in Christ.

-James Drummond

Pastor, I cannot begin to tell you how this site has blessed me and aided me in my sermon prep…thank you my dear brother for your labor of love and investment in the Kingdom.

-Pastor David Hill

Thanks for the great work. Love reading the quotes you have gathered together and arranged by topic. They have blessed me immeasurably. To God Be the Glory!

-Carol Anderson

Pastor, This email comes to you from somewhat out of the blue to thank you for the collection of quotes you make available to me (and many others) on your website. I am also a quote collector and use them every week in my messages to our congregation. I have been regularly blessed, challenged, and convicted by the thoughts portrayed in your many quotes. Thank you for your efforts in making them available. I have told a dozen fellow Bible teachers about the site and they have been amazed. Today, as I found some other quotes for my messages in January, I decided that I must find you and pass along my appreciation. God bless you, my brother.

-Pastor Greg Alderman

I love the quotes brother. I constantly consult your site to find pithy, passionate, succinct, summaries for my sometimes sad sermons! Please put me on the quote subscription list. Thanks!

-Pastor Doug Thompson

Dear Pastor, Just a quick note to say thank you for your ministry! I’m not sure if I’ve ever sent you and email before but I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all the work you do in compiling your quotes. It is a wonderful resource that I often use in my sermon prep up here in Arnprior, Ontario, Canada. Thought you’d be encouraged to know something more of the ripple effect of your faithful ministry!

-Pastor Lee Dyck (Canada)

-Lynda

Thank you for the wonderful collection of Christian themed quotes. I have a small “ministry” at my place of employment where I send out a Christian themed quote each morning. I must admit that I have “borrowed” from your collection. God bless and never underestimate the strength of a quality quote.

-Bruce Horsley

Just a quick note of thanks for your many years of faithful service and this incredible compilation of excellent quotes from the many excellent brethren (both alive and passed on) who have left us these precious gems of scriptural thoughts and meditations. So much to ponder and then work out in my own life. So encouraging and insightful on many areas of the Christian life. May the Lord richly bless you as you continue to serve Him and add additional God-glorifying and convicting quotes. Thank you again.

-Lou Brancadora

Thank you for your website and all the quotes. I have found them very helpful.

-Sue Monte

We use your quotes each week in our bulletins and would love updates.

-Barbara Barton

I was googling a Thomas Waton article “For a drop of pleasure” and came across your site. Looked at your resourse page and saw the quotes. There is some really nice stuff there. I am not a pastor, just a searcher. I love and trust the Puritan writers. Thanks!

I subscribe to your Grace Quotes. I am writing to thank you for them. They have been quite a blessing to me and I really appreciate the time you put into them, and the care you use in selecting them. Your quotes elevate scripture, point me to the unmerited grace of God, remind me that it is all of Christ, encourage me in my faith, and Glorify God by extolling His sovereignty.

-Shawn Smith

Pastor, What an awesome site! I am going to promote it. Keep up the good work! In Christ’s service to His church.

I really appreciate your website and use it a lot!

Randy, I think your site is by far the best site for illustrations that I have ever used. Many web sites offer fluffy illustrations and you have to wade through so much bad stuff to get to anything good. Keep at it. You are on too something original and helpful. It has great indexes and it is very thorough.

-Pastor Scott Ardavanis

I’m very happy and fond of gracequotes. This is where the verses are on its best since i become an African Christian. Continue providing us with the food of the soul. Thank you
