- On healing: “For surely He who so cared for men’s bodies would care yet more for their souls.”
- On the Holy Spirit: “ . . . sanctification is a slow, tedious work, not a momentary act . . . the Spirit is given gradually and in limited measure, not at once and without measure.”
- On religious liberty: “For it is a solemn crisis in any man’s life when he first departs in the most minute particulars from the religious opinions and practices of his age.”
- On Judas and some of those who profess to know Christ: “Graceless men may for a season be employed as agents in promoting the work of grace in the hearts of others.”
- On the Lord’s table: “Christians eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of man at all times, not merely at communion times, simply by believing in Him.”
- On ‘calling’: “He (Christ) sought disciples God-given, God-drawn, God-taught, knowing that such alone would continue in His word.”
- On Satan’s goal: “For the whole aim of Satanic policy is to get self-interest recognized as the chief end of man.”
- On His Church: “The agreement He requires of His disciples is not entire unanimity in opinion, but consent of mind and heart in the ends they aim at, and in unselfish devotion to these things.” And, “He did not wish His church to consist of a collection of clubs having no intercommunion with each other, any more than He desired it to be a monster hotel, receiving and harboring all comers, no questions being asked.”
- On self-sacrifice: “For no man is at liberty to choose whether he shall be a good Christian or an indifferent one, or is excused from practicing certain virtues merely because they are difficult.” And, “Where a testament is, here must also be the death of the testator.”
- On love: “While imposing sacrifices, love, by way of compensation, makes them easy.” And, “Love made her (Mary who anointed Him in Bethany) original in thought and conduct.”
- On obedience: “A master is pleased when a pupil understands his lesson, but a lord is pleased only when his servants do his bidding.”
- On loss: “Sorrow is healed by weeping: the sympathy which melts the heart at the same time comforts it.”
- On leadership: “The main business, even of the chief under-shepherds, is not to make others follow Christ, but to follow Him themselves.”
