Holiness would transform the world – CS Lewis

Holiness would transform the world – CS Lewis

How little people know who think that holiness is dull. When one meets the real thing … it is irresistible. If even 10% of the world’s population had it, would not the whole world be converted and happy before a year’s end?

Doing the Lord’s Work – Corrie Ten Boom

Trying to do the Lord’s work in your own strength is the most confusing, exhausting, and tedious of all work. But when you are filled with the Holy Spirit, then the ministry of Jesus just flows out of you.

Regardless of how you feel – Charles Spurgeon

Regardless of how you feel – Charles Spurgeon

If we never do any work for Christ except when we feel up to the mark, we shall not do much. If we feel that we will not pray because we cannot pray, we shall never pray.

Release your grasp on the temporal – Jim Elliot

Release your grasp on the temporal – Jim Elliot

Father, let me loose my clutch on everything temporal. My life, my reputation, my possessions, Lord, let me loose the tension of the grasping hand. Open my hand to receive the nail of Calvary, as Christ’s was opened. He thought Heaven, yea, equality with God, not a thing to be clutched at. So let me release my grasp.
