Holiness of Life – Robert Murray M’Cheyne

Study universal holiness of life. Your whole usefulness depends on this, for your sermons last but an hour or two; your life preaches all the week. If Satan can only make a covetous minister a lover of praise, of pleasure, of good eating, he has ruined your ministry. Give yourself to prayer, and get your texts, your thoughts, your words from God. Luther spent his best three hours in prayer.

How We Are Called to Speak – Oswald Chambers

When Paul mentions the matter of conversation, he says, “See that your speech is edifying”— good building-up stuff, not sanctimonious talk, but real solid stuff that makes people stronger in the Word of God, stronger in character, stronger in practical life.

– Oswald Chambers –

Prayer is Absolutely Vital – Charles Spurgeon

Whether we like it or not, asking is the rule of the Kingdom. If you may have everything by asking in His Name, and nothing without asking, I beg you to see how absolutely vital prayer is.

– Charles Spurgeon –

True Definition of Preaching – Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Any true definition of preaching must say that that man is there to deliver the message of God… He has been sent, he is a commissioned person, and he is standing there as the mouthpiece of God and of Christ to address these people.

– D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones –
