- I am a sinner and a debtor to God. The law has a claim against me; but the gospel says Christ paid that claim on the cross. I believe that. I take that death as good for my claim, and I say boldly, "It is paid," I am tired of sin. Christ bids me rest on Him. I do rest on Him. He tells me that if I will put myself, sins and all, with all my weakness — put my stained past, the guidance of the present, the whole matter of the future, into His hands, and leave it with Him, He will take care of the whole. I do put it all into His hands. I lay my sins on Jesus. I rest my whole life on Him.
- Reported in Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 232.
- Dear seeker of salvation, doubting, fearing Christian, you are beaten by the billows of sin and fear, swept by the gusts of doubt. Look through the mists, and behold the pilot! Christ comes to you to take every thing in charge. Will you let Him come? Will you give Him charge? Will you just throw off the whole load of sin, doubt, and fear on Him, and rest?

- No man's salvation depends on his believing that he believes; but it does depend on his seeing and receiving Jesus Christ as his Saviour.
