“Unless we are willing to pay the price, and sacrifice time and attention and what appear legitimate or necessary duties, for the sake of the heavenly gifts we need not look for a large experience of the power of the heavenly world in our work”
– Andrew Murray

H.A. Ironside

Quote for Today

“God is not looking for brilliant men, is not depending upon eloquent men, is not shut up to the use of talented men in sending His Gospel out in the world. God is looking for broken men, for men who have judged themselves in the light of the Cross of Christ. When He wants anything done, He takes up men who have come to an end of themselves, and whose trust and confidence is not in themselves but in God.”
– H.A. Ironside

Heresy – A.W. Tozer

Quote for Today

“Heresy is not so much rejecting as selecting. The heretic simply selects the parts of the Scripture he wants to emphasize and lets the rest go. This is shown by the etymology of the word heresy and by the practice of the heretic. “Beware,” an editorial scribe of the fourteenth century warned his readers in the preface to a book. “Beware thou take not one thing after thy affection and liking, and leave another: for that is the condition of an heretique. But take everything with other.” The old scribe knew well how prone we are to take to ourselves those parts of the truth that please us and ignore the other parts. And that is heresy

Quote for Today – A.W. Tozer

Quote for Today

“I wonder if there was ever a time when true spiritual worship was at a lower ebb. To great sections of the church, the art of worship has been lost entirely, and in its place has come that strange and foreign thing called the “program.” This word has been borrowed from the stage and applied with sad wisdom to the public service which now passes for worship among us”
– A. W. Tozer

Johann Arndt

Quote for Today

“Give me … a compassionate heart, quickly moved to grieve for the woes of others and to active pity for them, even as our Lord Jesus Christ beheld our poverty and hasted to help us. Give me grace ever to alleviate the crosses and difficulties of those around me, and never to add to them; teach me to be a consoler in sorrow, to take thought for the stranger, the widow, and the orphan; let my charity show itself not in words only but in deed and truth.”
— Johann Arndt (1555-1621)

The Purpose of Life

Quote for Today

“My Lord, I have nothing to do in this World, but to seek and serve thee; I have nothing to do with a Heart and its affections, but to breathe after thee. I have nothing to do with my Tongue and Pen, but to speak to thee, and for thee, and to publish thy Glory and thy Will”
– Richard Baxter

C.R. Oliver

C.R. Oliver

(Excerpt from his monthly newsletter on the exegesis of Paul’s Epistle to the Church at Ephesus).

“…the eyes of your understanding being enlightened;
that you may know what is the hope of His calling”
Ephesians 1:18 NKJV

“Evidence of spiritual blindness in the modern church is still a factor of concern. Paul was not addressing those outside the church, those who still had the veil of ignorance. He was praying for the church to have full comprehension of the hope of His calling. This is the hope of glory. This is the depth of His provision. To know Him is to see the vastness of His power and the encompassing of His love. Paul wants his congregation to experience what he experiences. He wants them to have “God Eyes” and take His view of things as reality rather than the circumstances around them. From a prison, he prayed for them to see the “big picture” and become a part of true fellowship”
– C.R. Oliver

C.R. Oliver is a very dear brother to me; his wisdom and kindness have been a refreshing fountain of God’s grace in my own life. The fire that burns within his heart has often kindled my own. I encourage any who read this to visit his site and to avail themselves of the wellspring of Christ within him.

Mrs. Charles E. Cowman

Quote for Today

“Use the faith God has already given you. You have faith, or you could not be a Christian. Use your little faith and it will increase by use. Plant a few grains of it, and you will find it will grow and multiply. George Müller said that when he began his ministry it was as hard to believe for a pound as it was forty years later to believe for a thousand pounds. He was like the Thessalonians to whom Paul wrote, “Your faith groweth exceedingly”
               Do not be satisfied with prayer and desire, but DO!
