    Preaching quotes by:    

The world is my parish.

    Author: John Wesley

It is no marvel that the devil does not love field preaching! Neither do I; I love a commodious room, a soft cushion, a handsome pulpit. But where is my zeal if I do not trample all these underfoot in order to save one more soul?

    Author: John Wesley

I am well assured that I did far more good to my Lincolnshire parishioners by preaching three days on my fathers tomb than I did by preaching three years in his pulpit.

    Author: John Wesley

Once in seven years I burn all my sermons; for it is a shame, if I cannot write better sermons now than I did seven years ago.

    Author: John Wesley

    Author: Leonard Ravenhill

Some plague the people with too long sermons; for the faculty of listening is a tender thing, and soon becomes weary and satiated.

    Author: Martin Luther

When I am angry I can pray well and preach well.

    Author: Martin Luther

A preacher should have the skill to teach the unlearned simply, roundly, and plainly; for teaching is of more importance than exhorting.

    Author: Martin Luther

The defects of a preacher are soon spied. Let him be endued with ten virtues, and have but one fault, and that one fault will eclipse and darken all his virtues and gifts, so evil is the world in these times.

    Author: Martin Luther

Reasons are the pillars of the fabric of a sermon, but similitudes are the windows which give the best light. The faithful minister avoids such stories as may suggest bad thoughts to the auditors, and will not use a light comparison to make thereof a grave application, for fear lest his poison go further than his antidote.

    Author: Thomas Fuller

It was said of one who preached very well, and lived very ill, "that when he was out of the pulpit it was pity he should ever go into it; and when he was in the pulpit, it was pity he should ever come out of it."

    Author: Thomas Fuller
