William Carey Quotes

Quotes by William Carey




"It is true all the reward is of mere grace..."

"The future is as bright as the promises of God."

"Expect great things from God, attempt great things for God."

"I can plod. I can persevere in any definite pursuit. To this I owe everything."

"Christians are a body whose truest interest lies in the exaltation of the Messiah's kingdom."

"The most glorious works of grace that have ever took place, have been in answer to prayer."

"Surely it is worth while to lay ourselves out with all our might, in promoting the cause, and kingdom of Christ."

"One of the first, and most important of those duties which are incumbent upon us, is fervent and united prayer."

"if God intends the salvation of the heathen, he will some way or other bring them to the gospel, or the gospel to them..."

"In respect to those who bear the Christian name, a very great degree of ignorance and immorality abounds amongst them."

"We must not be contented however with praying, without exerting ourselves in the use of means for the obtaining of those things we pray for."

"Our Lord Jesus Christ, a little before his departure, commissioned his apostles to Go, and teach all nations; or, as another evangelist expresses it, Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."

"-Christians are a body whose truest interest lies in the exaltation of the Messiah's kingdom. Their charter is very extensive, their encouragements exceeding great, and the returns promised infinitely superior to all the gains of the most lucrative fellowship. Let then every one in his station consider himself as bound to act with all his might, and in every possible way for God."

"The Missionaries must be of great piety, prudence, courage, and forbearance; of undoubted orthodoxy in their sentiments, and must enter with all their hearts into the spirit of their mission; they must be willing to leave all the comforts of life behind them, And to encounter all the hardships of a torrid, or a frigid climate, an uncomfortable manner of living, and every other inconvenience that can attend this undertaking."

"We are exhorted to lay up treasure in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, nor thieves break through and steal. It is also declared that whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. These scriptures teach us that the enjoyments of the life to come, bear a near relation to that which now is; a relation similar to that of the harvest, and the seed. It is true all the reward is of mere grace, but it is nevertheless encouraging; what a treasure, what an harvest must await such characters as PAUL, and ELLIOT, and BRAINERD, and others, who have given themselves wholly to the work of the Lord."

"Our Lord Jesus Christ, a little before his departure, commissioned his apostles to Go, and teach all nations; or, as another evangelist expresses it, Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. This commission was as extensive as possible, and laid them under obligation to disperse themselves into every country of the habitable globe, and preach to all the inhabitants, without exception or limitation. They accordingly went forth in obedience to the command, and the power of God evidently wrought with them. Many attempts of the same kind have been made since their day, and which have been attended with various success; but the work has not been taken up, or prosecuted of late years (except by a few individuals) with that zeal and perseverance with which the primitive Christians went about it."
