    Dwight L Moody (2013). “Secret Power”, p.17, Lulu Press, Inc
  • When a man is not deeply convicted of sin, it is a pretty sure sign that he has not truly repented. Experience has taught me that men who have very slight conviction of sin sooner or later lapse back into their old life.

  • God will not accept a divided heart. He must be absolute monarch. There is not room in your heart for two thrones. You cannot mix the worship of the true God with the worship of any other god more than you can mix oil and water. It cannot be done. There is not room for any other throne in the heart if Christ is there. If worldliness should come in, godliness would go out.

  • If you do not feel a fervent love and profound pity for humanity, be assured that the gift of Christian eloquence has been denied you. You will not win souls, neither will you acquire that most excellent of earthly sovereignties - sovereignty over human hearts....Love is irresistible.

  • No matter how low down you are; no matter what your disposition has been; you may be low in your thoughts, words, and actions; you may be selfish; your heart may be overflowing with corruption and wickedness; yet Jesus will have compassion upon you. He will speak comforting words to you; not treat you coldly or spurn you, as perhaps those of earth would, but will speak tender words, and words of love and affection and kindness. Just come at once. He is a faithful friend - a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

  • It is a favorite thing with infidels to set their own standard, to measure themsleves by other people. But that will not do in the Day of Judgment. Now we will use God's law as a balance weight.

    Law   People   Balance  
    Dwight L Moody (1977). “D. L. Moody on the Ten Commandments”, p.8, Moody Publishers
  • The law stops every man's mouth. God will have a man humble himself down on his face before Him, with not a word to say for himself. Then God will speak to him, when he owns that he is a sinner, and gets rid of all his own righteousness.

    Humble   Men   Law  
    Dwight L Moody (1897). “God's Good News”, p.23, Moody Publishers

    Use   May   Bigs  
  • Dr. Bonar once said that he could tell when a Christian was growing. In proportion to his growth in grace he would elevate his Master, talk less of what he himself was doing, and become smaller and smaller in his own esteem, until, like the morning star, he faded away before the rising sun.

  • How far away is Heaven? It is not so far as some imagine. It wasn't very far from Daniel. It was not so far off that Elijah's prayer and those of others could not be heard there. Men full of the Spirit can look right into heaven.

    Dwight L Moody (1977). “D. L. Moody on the Ten Commandments”, p.108, Moody Publishers
  • We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won't need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don't fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine.

  • The impression that a praying mother leaves upon her children is life-long. Perhaps when you are dead and gone your prayer will be answered.

    Mom   Mother   Prayer  
  • A holy life will produce the deepest impression. Lighthouses blow no horns; they only shine.

  • I went to preaching again. The sermons were not different; I did not present any new truths, and yet hundreds were converted. I would not now be placed back where I was before that blessed experience if you should give me all the world - it would be as dust in the balance.

    Blessed   Dust   Giving  
  • Next to the wonder of seeing my Savior will be, I think, the wonder that I made so little use of the power of prayer.

    Prayer   Thinking   Use  
  • His is a loving, tender hand, full of sympathy and compassion.

  • Be humble, or you'll stumble.

  • I believe many a man is praying to God to fill him, when he is full already with something else. Before we pray that God would fill us, I believe we ought to pray Him to empty us.

    Christian   Believe   Men  
    Dwight L Moody (2013). “Secret Power”, p.20, Lulu Press, Inc

    Forgiveness   Voice   Sin  
  • Would you be free from the condemnation of the sins that are past, from the power of the temptations that are to come? Then take your stand on the Rock of Ages. Let death, let the grave, let the judgment come, the victory is Christ's and yours through Him.

    Past   Rocks   Temptation  
    Dwight L Moody (1897). “God's Good News”, p.43, Moody Publishers
  • A great many people are trying to make peace, but that has already been done. God has not left it for us to do; all we have to do is to enter into it.

    Dwight L Moody (2001). “The Secret of Success in the Christian Life”, p.19, Moody Publishers

    Christian   Brother   Eye  
  • Some people come to me and say, "Mr. Moody, don't you feel a great responsibility when you come before an audience like this - don't you feel a great weight upon your shoulders?" "Well." I say, "no; I cannot convert men; I can only proclaim the Gospel.
