Discipline

Waiting on God – G. Campbell Morgan

Waiting for God is not laziness. Waiting for God is not going to sleep. Waiting for God is not the abandonment of effort. Waiting for God means, first, activity under command; second, readiness for any new command that may come; third, the ability to do nothing until the command is given.

– G. Campbell Morgan –


The Necessity of Prayer – EM Bounds

Faith, and hope, and patience and all the strong, beautiful, vital forces of piety are withered and dead in a prayerless life. The life of the individual believer, his personal salvation, and personal Christian graces have their being, bloom, and fruitage in prayer.

How to Grow in Holiness – Andrew Murray

Nowhere can we get to know the holiness of God, and come under His influence and power, except in the inner chamber. It has been well said: “No man can expect to make progress in holiness who is not often and long alone with God.”

– Andrew Murray –

Begin Your Day With This … – Hudson Taylor

Do not have your concert first, and then tune your instrument afterwards. Begin the day with the Word of God in prayer, and get first of all into harmony with Him.

– Hudson Taylor –
1832-1905

Methodists Cease to Exist? – John Wesley

I am not afraid that the people called Methodists should ever cease to exist either in Europe or America. But I am afraid lest they should only exist as a dead sect, having the form of religion without the power. And this undoubtedly will be the case unless they hold fast both the doctrine, spirit, and discipline with which they first set out.

– John Wesley –

Too Busy? – AB Christiansen

Too busy; O forgive, Dear Lord, that I should ever be, too much engrossed in earthly tasks, to spend an hour with thee.
