Dwight L. Moody was 19th-century American evangelist. He ministered to troops during the Civil War, then after the war, he started a church and continued to host revival meetings. He wrote several works and founded the Chicago Bible Institute, which was later renamed the Moody Bible Institute in his honor. His words still resound today as powerful evangelical teachings. Enjoy these quotes by D.L. Moody, and draw closer to God!
Let God have your life; He can do more with it than you can.
We ought to see the face of God every morning before we see the face of man.
We have in our churches a great deal of prayer, but I think it would be a good thing if we had a praise meeting occasionally. If we could only get people to praise God for what He has done, it would be a good deal better than asking Him continually for something.
Real true faith is man’s weakness leaning on God’s strength.
When a man is filled with the Word of God you cannot keep him still, If a man has got the Word, he must speak or die.
All should work and ask God’s guidance.
I know the Bible is inspired because it inspires me.
If we were all of us doing the work that God has got for us to do, don’t you see how the work of the Lord would advance?
I would rather go into the kingdom of heaven to the poor house than go down to hell in a golden chariot.
Attitudes determine our actions, for good or bad.
David was the last one we would have chosen to fight the giant, but he was chosen by God.
The grace of God hath power to bring salvation to all men, and if a man is unsaved it is because he wants to work it out; he wants to receive salvation in some other way than God’s way; but we are told that “he that climbeth up another way, the same is a thief and a robber.”
The Bible was not given to increase our knowledge but to change our lives.
Careful for nothing, prayerful for everything, thankful for anything.
The character is what a man is in the dark.
Grace means undeserved kindness. It is the gift of God to man the moment he sees he is unworthy of God’s favor.
