Godly Women From The Past (Mary Slessor Part 2)

Quotes from Mary Slessor

Thoughts in Mary Bible:

"God is never behind time"

"Good is good, but it is not enough; it must be God"

"An arm of flesh never brings power"

"Blessed the man and woman who is able to serve cheerfully in the second rank — a big test"

"If you play with temptation do not expect God will deliver you"

Other Thoughts From Mary:

"dreamed that she saw the whole region being won for Jesus, and the people coming to His house clothed and in their right mind"

"O God!" she prayed, "old and feeble and unworthy as I am, help me to win them."

She told those who were being tranined:
"You must be the leaders of your race and help them to rise, but you can only lead others to Jesus if you follow Him closely yourself."

To her children she would say:
"Keep close to Jesus"

"God will go with you and keep you," she said. "Try and find out some one who preaches the Gospel and keep near him.
"This book, will be a lamp to you and guide you."
