- "Are the things you're living for worth Christ dying for?"
Leonard Ravenhill is a favorite of mine, not only because his last name is Ravenhill (I have this odd obsession with ravens....) but also because he was an efficacious evangelist and author, who avidly spoke on the topics of prayer and revival. He influenced many, including Ravi Zacharias and A.W. Tozer. He died in 1994 and that above quote became his epitaph.
Here's some more Ravenhill;
- "The opportunity of a lifetime must be seized within the lifetime of the opportunity."
- "If weak in prayer, we are weak everywhere."
- "If Jesus had preached the same message that ministers preach today, He would never have been crucified."
- "My main ambition in life is to be on the devil's most wanted list."
This man passionate man left his mark. His words have a lot of power, but nothing can speak as clearly as an ardent life well lived to the glory of God.
