Quotes from M'Cheyne

Robert Murray M‘Cheyne (1813-1843), the godly and devoted minister of St Peter’s Church, Dundee, Scotland was called "home" at age 29. Andrew Bonar wrote an excellent biography of this Scottish preacher that has enabled M'Cheyne's work to live on. Here are some powerful quotes from M'Cheyne's ministry:

"A man is what he is on his knees before God, and nothing more."

"For every look at self, take ten looks at Christ."

"Live near to God, and all things will appear little to you in comparison with eternal realities."

"Lord make me as holy as a pardoned sinner can be."
