Keith Green Story (Part 6)

The Keith Green Story pt 7/7

I remember when I first Keith Green. He had a great impact on me. Below are some quotes on Keith:

Quotes

 

“It’s time to quit playing church and start being the Church (Matt. 18:20)” — Keith Green, as quoted by Melody Green in the introduction to A Cry in the Wilderness, Sparrow Press, 1993.

“I repent of ever having recorded one single song, and ever having performed one concert, if my music, and more importantly, my life has not provoked you into Godly jealousy or to sell out more completely to Jesus!” — Keith Green

“You shouldn’t go to college unless God has definitely called you to go.” — Keith Green, ‘Why YOU should go to the mission field’, 1982

“No Compromise is what the whole Gospel of Jesus is all about… ‘For I tell you…no man can serve two masters…’ (Matt. 6:24). In a day when believers seem to be trying to please both the world and the Lord (which is an impossible thing), when people are far more concerned about offending their friends than offending God, there is only one answer…Deny yourself, take up your cross and follow Him!” — Keith Green, No Compromise

No Compromise
No Compromise is the second album release by American pianist and gospel singer Keith Green, released in 1978.The album’s title derives from track #2, ‘Make My Life A Prayer To You’, which begins: “Make my life a prayer to You / I wanna do what You want me to / No empty words and no white lies / no…

 album, 1978.

“If your heart takes more pleasure in reading novels, or watching TV, or going to the movies, or talking to friends, rather than just sitting alone with God and embracing Him, sharing His cares and His burdens, weeping and rejoicing with Him, then how are you going to handle forever and ever in His presence? You’d be bored to tears in heaven, if you’re not ecstatic about God now!!” — Keith Green

“The only music minister to whom the Lord will say, “Well done, thy good and faithful servant,” is the one whose life proves what their lyrics are saying, and to whom music is the least important part of their life. Glorifying the only worthy One has to be a minister’s most important goal!!!” — Keith Green

“He, being dead, yet speaketh.”Leonard Ravenhill
