Quoting Robert Murray M'Cheyne

From the sermons of Robert Murray M'Cheyne
But let Christ be revealed to an unconverted soul, let it not be merely a man speaking about Christ unto him, but let the spirit of God reveal him, and there is revealed, not a truth, but the truth. ~ M'Cheyne, sermon 1
Christ is the life of every soul that cleaves to him. ~ M'Cheyne, sermon 1
More souls are lost through want of consideration than in any other way. The reason why men are not awakened and made anxious for their souls is, that the devil never gives them time to consider. ~ M'Cheyne, sermon 2
Believers should live in daily consideration of the greatness and glory of Christ. ~ M'Cheyne, sermon 2
You are so busy looking at books, or looking at men, or looking at the world, that you have no time,  no heart, for looking at Christ. ~ M'Cheyne, sermon 2
Consider the greatness and glory of Christ, who has undertaken all in the stead of sinners, and you would find it quite impossible to walk in darkness, or to walk in sin. ~ M'Cheyne, sermon 2
It is good to consider your ways, but it is far better to consider Christ. ~ M'Cheyne, sermon 2
O happy believer, rejoice evermore. Live within sight of Calvary, and you will live within sight of glory. ~ M'Cheyne, sermon 2
Oh! what a wonderful thing the eye of faith is: it sees beyond the stars, it pierces to the throne of God, and there it looks on the face of Jesus making intercession for us, whom having not seen we love, in whom, though now we see him not, yet believing we rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory. ~ M'Cheyne, sermon 2
