Quotes by John Jowett


God does not comfort us to make us comfortable but to make us comforters.


Ministry that costs nothing, accomplishes nothing.


Death is not the end; it is only a new beginning. Death is not the master of the house; he is only a porter at the King’s lodge, appointed to open the gate and let the King’s guests into the realm of eternal day.


The real measure of our wealth is how much we would be worth if we lost all our money.


Worldliness is a spirit, a temperament, an attitude of the soul. It is a life without high callings, life devoid of lofty ideals. It is a gaze always horizontal and never vertical.


I think one of the cant phrases of our day is the familiar one by which we express our permanent want of time. We repeat it so often that by the very repetition we have deceived ourselves into believing it. It is never the supremely busy men who have no time. So compact and systematic is the regulation of their day that whenever you make a demand on them, they seem to find additional corners to offer for unselfish service. I confess as a minister, that the men to whom I most hopefully look for additional service are the busiest men.
