Let those be thy choicest companions who have made Christ their chief companion.”
Thomas Brooks

He is your friend who pushes you nearer to God.
Abraham Kuyper

By friendship you mean the greatest love, the greatest usefulness, the most open communication, the noblest sufferings, the severest truth, the heartiest counsel, and the greatest union of minds of which brave men and women are capable
Jeremy Taylor

He that forgets his friend is ungrateful to him; but he that forgets his Saviour is unmerciful to himself.
John Bunyan

I am convinced, by the way, that friendships provide the most fertile soil for evangelism. When the reality of Christ is introduced into a relationship of love and trust that has already been established, the effect is powerful. And it seems that invariably, when someone becomes a true follower of Christ, that person’s first impulse is to want to find a friend and introduce that friend to Christ.
John MacArthur

The dearest friend on earth is a mere shadow compared to Jesus Christ.
Oswald Chambers

Show me a man’s books and show me a man’s companions–and I will tell you what sort of a man he is.
William Tiptaft

Love is friendship set on fire.
Jeremy Taylor

No man can be called friendless who has God and the companionship of good books.
E B Browning

Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labour. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

A man that hath friends must show himself friendly:
and there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.
Proverbs 18:24

Christ Jesus is that FRIEND (of Sinners) that stays closer than a brother.

MOTTO 2013

 MOTTO 2013

“I am hunting after poor sinners in these ungospelized wilds.”

In the preface to his book on George Whitefield, *1 J P Gledstone quotes Whitefield’s words above concerning his forest preaching. *2

This will make a great motto for us in the light of our Lord’s command *3

Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”

We now live a land, where the Gospel is seldom preached to sinners where they are, although it is often preached in Church’s to those who are already claiming to be Christians.

Perhaps 2013 can be an opportunity for all of us to spread the Gospel to sinners with whom we rub shoulders with every day. They are perhaps lost sheep and need to be found, by the Good Shepherd, who gave his life for the sheep.

May I wish you all a very Blessed and Spiritually prosperous New Year.

2 As a missionary in the American backwoods.
3 Mark 16:15
