Andrew Murray (take 2)

Here is the second (and final) set of quotes from Andrew Murray (1828-1917), a key figure in the South African revival of 1860. Murray is remembered as an author, pastor and champion of mission. He is sometimes considered one of the forerunners of the Pentecostal movement because of his emphasis on faith healing and the continuation of the spiritual gifts. He also placed special emphasis on prayer. I recently read one of his classics – Humility: The Beauty of Holiness, and thought that a few insights from this and some of his others books were worth a few Managing Monday posts.

  • Pride must die in you or nothing of heaven can live in you – Andrew Murray
  • Jesus never taught his disciples how to preach, only how to pray – Andrew Murray
  • Some people pray just to pray, and some people pray to know God – Andrew Murray
  • No man can expect to make progress in holiness who is not often and long alone with God – Andrew Murray
  • Humility is perfect quietness of heart. It is to expect nothing, to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, and when I am blamed or despised – Andrew Murray

As always, nice chatting…
