Vance Havner quotes (showing 1-15 of 15)

“God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume. It is Peter, weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power than ever.”
Vance Havner
“If you are a Christian, you are not a citizen of this world trying to get to heaven; you are a citizen of heaven making your way through this world. ”
Vance Havner
“The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps, we must step up the stairs. ”
Vance Havner
“A soft and sheltered Christianity, afraid to be lean and lone, unwilling to face the storms and brave the heights, will end up fat and foul in the cages of conformity.”
Vance Havner
“We are suffering today from a species of Christianity as dry as dust, as cold as ice, as pale as a corpse, and as dead as King Tut. We are suffering not from a lack of correct heads but of consumed hearts.”
Vance Havner
“We are not going to move this world by criticism of it nor conformity to it, but by the combustion within it of lives ignited by the Spirit of God.”
Vance Havner
“Let it never be forgotten that, although we may do nothing about the Word we hear, the Word will do something to us.
The same sun melts ice and hardens clay, and the Word of God humbles or hardens the human heart.”
Vance Havner, Jesus Only

Vance Havner
“A lot of dear folks today are either in a state of cholera morbus or St. Vitus's dance [ the twitching nerve disorder chorea]. We need to get going for God. Faith in itself has no value unless it connects you with God. The Bible is constantly trying to wake us up: "Stir up the gift of God" (2 Tim. 1:6); "Break up your fallow ground" (Hos. 10:12); "Gird up the loins of your mind" (1 Peter 1:13). We need to take ourselves by the nape of the neck and make ourselves do what we know we ought to do, whether we feel like it or not.
Vance Havner, When God Breaks Through: Revival Sermons by Vance Havner
“It used to be called the Lord's Day, now it is the weekend and if we group all holidays on weekends the devil will have scored another move against Sunday worship.”
Vance Havner, A Treasury of Vance Havner, Twentieth-Century Prophet, Preacher, Pilgrim
“The temple of truth has never suffered so much from woodpeckers on the outside as from termites within.”
Vance Havner, Pepper N Salt
“Worry is like a rocking chair. It will give you something to do, but it won't get you anywhere.”
Vance Havner
“I believe in the Church and in loyalty to a local church. I am not in favour of that view of the invisible church that makes one invisible at church on Sunday morning.”
Vance Havner, "That I May Know Him": A Personal Testimony
“There are two omnipotences with Him: ‘With God all things are possible”: “All things are possible to him that believeth.”
