Thomas Brooks Quotes

He who stands upon his own strength will never stand.

Thomas Brooks

Love is a golden key to let in Christ, and a strong lock to keep out others.

Thomas Brooks

One of Satan's devices to keep poor souls in a sad, doubting, and questioning condition is causing them to be always posing and musing upon sin; to mind their sins more than their Saviour: yea, so to mind their sins as to forget and neglect their Saviour. Their eyes are so fixed upon their disease that they cannot see their remedy, though it be near; and they do so muse upon their debts that they have neither mind nor heart to think of their surety.

Thomas Brooks

It is the very nature of grace to make a man strive to be most eminent in that particular grace which is most opposed to his bosom sin.

Thomas Brooks

Though there is nothing more dangerous, yet there is nothing more ordinary, than for weak saints to make their sense and feeling the judge of their condition. We must strive to walk by faith.

Thomas Brooks

Faith is the champion of grace, and love the nurse; but humility is the beauty of grace.

Thomas Brooks

Weak Christians are afraid of the shadow of the cross.

Thomas Brooks

God's very service is wages; His ways are strewed with roses, and paved with joy that is unspeakable and full of glory, and with peace that passeth understanding.

Thomas Brooks

Our sins are debts that none can pay but Christ. It is not our tears, but His blood; it is not our sighs, but His sufferings, that can testify for our sins. Christ must pay all, or we are prisoners forever.

Thomas Brooks

The more the soul is conformed to Christ, the more confident it will be of its interest in Christ.

Thomas Brooks

There is no soul under heaven that commonly lies under the commanding power of the Word, but that soul that has an interest in the Word of Promise.

Thomas Brooks

Such as diligently search the Scripture shall find that true blessedness, happiness, and salvation is attributed to several signs: sometimes to the fear of God, sometimes to faith, sometimes to repentance, sometimes to love, sometimes to meekness, sometimes to humility, sometimes to patience, sometimes to poverty of spirit, sometimes to holy mourning, sometimes to hungering and thirsting after righteousness; so that if a godly man can find any one of those in himself, he may safely and groundedly conclude of his salvation and justification, though he cannot see all those signs in him.

Thomas Brooks

Certainly, those persons that shall deny sanctification to be a most sure, sweet, and comfortable evidence of man's justification, they must not only blot out, and abolish the epistles of James and John, but must also raze out and abolish all those evangelical promises of grace and mercy, and of happiness and blessedness, that are made to such persons as are invested, enriched, and bespangled with the several graces of the Holy Spirit.

Thomas Brooks

There are many fair professors that are foul sinners, and that have much of God, and Christ, and heaven, and holiness in their lips, when they have nothing but sin and hell in their hearts and lives. These mens conversations shame their profession, and therefore they cry against sanctification as a sure and blessed evidence of a mans justification.

Thomas Brooks

The lives of such are most desirable, and the deaths of such will be most lamented, who make it their business to serve their generation.

Thomas Brooks

The first great work that men are to attend in this world is the eternal safety and security of their souls; the next great work is to know, to be assured, that it shall go well with their souls forever.
