echoes from glory
Harry A. Ironside Sayings

H A Ironside• The servant is nothing, but God is everything.

• We need to realize that in all things our first duty and responsibility is to God Himself.

• Christianity is not just repeating John 3:16 or Acts 16:31; it is yielding the heart and the life to Christ.

• You could not be saved through any effort of your own, but now that you are saved it is necessary for you to put forward every effort you can to glorify Him.

• No sacrifice should be too great for Him who gave Himself for us.

• The Christian is called out from the world. His life is not to be as the lives of those about him.

• Truth alone will not preserve if there be not corresponding exercise as to living in its power, and being controlled thereby.

• The Gospel is not good advice to be obeyed, it is good news to be believed.

• It must be Christ or hell, and to neglect the one is but to choose the other.

• Light obeyed, results in greater light.

• Mark you, the only way to go on with God is by being faithful in little things.

• It is not so much looking for and learning new truth that will bless and deliver the saints fo God, as testing our ways by the truth already committed to us and seeking to walk in the reality of it.

• "Where He leads me, I will follow," but don't start and ask Him to tag along.

• God will not do for you what He has given you strength to do for yourself.
