“Walking in Faith by the Grace of God”, quotes from Martin Lloyd-Jones (Faith, Spiritual Ethics, in Christ)

“Walking in Faith by the Grace of God”, Quotes by Martin Lloyd-Jones

“Faith is a refusal to panic.” Martin Lloyd-Jones

“Faith holds on to truth and reason from what it knows to be fact.” Martin Lloyd-Jones

 “Human will-power alone is not enough. Will-power is excellent and we should always be using it; but it is not enough. A desire to live a good life is not enough. Obviously we should all have that desire, but it will not guarantee success. So let me put it thus: Hold on to your principles of morality and ethics, use your willpower to the limit, pay great heed to every noble, uplifting desire that is in you; but realize that these things alone are not enough, that they will never bring you to the desired place. We have to realize that all our best is totally inadequate, that a spiritual battle must be fought in a spiritual manner.” Martin Lloyd-Jones

 “If we only spent more of our time in looking at Him we should soon forget ourselves.” Martin Lloyd-Jones.

“To dwell on the past simply causes failure in the present. While you are sitting down and bemoaning the past and regretting all the things you have not done, you are crippling yourself and preventing yourself from working in the present. Is that Christianity? Of course it is not.” Martin Lloyd-Jones.

 “There is nothing which so certifies the genuineness of a man’s faith as his patience and his patient endurance, his keeping on steadily in spite of everything.” Martin Lloyd-Jones

“As Christians we should never feel sorry for ourselves. The moment we do so, we lose our energy, we lose the will to fight and the will to live, and are paralyzed.” Martin Lloyd-Jones

“We must not concentrate overmuch upon our feelings. Do not spend too much time feeling your own pulse taking your own spiritual temperature, do not spend too much time analyzing your feelings. That is the high road to morbidity.” Martin Lloyd-Jones

“Holiness is not something we are called upon to do in order that we may become something; it is something we are to do because of what we already are.” Martin Lloyd-Jones

“It is grace at the beginning, and grace at the end. So that when you and I come to lie upon our death beds, the one thing that should comfort and help and strengthen us there is the thing that helped us in the beginning. Not what we have been, not what we have done, but the Grace of God in Jesus Christ our Lord. The Christian life starts with grace, it must continue with grace, it ends with grace. Grace wondrous grace. By the grace of God I am what I am. Yet not I, but the Grace of God which was with me.” Martin Lloyd-Jones

“To be a Christian is not only to believe the teaching of Christ, and to practice it; it is not only to try to follow the pattern and example of Christ; it is to be so vitally related to Christ that His life and His power are working in us. It is to be “in Christ,” it is for Christ to be in us.” Martin Lloyd-Jones
