QUOTE (John Mott) – Jan 31

January 31, 2014

Mott in 1910

“The men that will change the colleges and seminaries here represented are the men that will spend the most time alone with God…It takes time for the fires to burn. It takes time for God to draw near and for us to know that He is there. It takes time to assimilate His truth. You ask me, How much time? I do not know. I know it means time enough to forget time.”

“It is possible for the most obscure person in a church, with a heart right toward God, to exercise as much power for the evangelization of the world, as it is for those who stand in the most prominent positions.”
~ John R. Mott

In honor of John Mott, American Evangelist and Nobel Prize winner, who died on this day in 1955.
