Growing in Grace – JC Ryle

Spirit-filled souls ablaze for God – Samuel Chadwick

Spirit-filled souls ablaze for God – Samuel Chadwick

Spirit-filled souls are ablaze for God. They love with a love that glows. They serve with a faith that kindles. They serve with a devotion that consumes. They hate sin with fierceness that burns. They rejoice with a joy that radiates. Love is perfected in the fire of God.

Movement in Your Love – Richard Rolle

Lord Jesus, I ask Thee, give unto me movement in Thy love without measure; desire without limit; longing without order; burning without discretion. Truly the better the love of Thee is, the greedier it is; for neither by reason is it restrained, nor be dread thronged, nor by doom tempted.
