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.

Different From the Rest of Mankind – Richard Baxter

That this Spirit is given to all true believers is evident by the effects of his being given. They have ends, affections, and lives different from the rest of mankind; they live upon the hopes of a better life, and their heavenly interest overrules all the opposite interest of this world. In order to this they live under the conduct of divine authority, and to obey and please God is the great business of their lives.

– Richard Baxter –
from Dying Thoughts, 1683

People Do Not Drift Toward Holiness – DA Carson

People do not drift toward Holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated.

How to Worship God Wholeheartedly – Unknown

How do we worship our God wholeheartedly? To answer the question we must respond to the command … “If you love me, you will obey what I command” (John 14:15). True Love is complete obedience … half obedience is no obedience. If you love Jesus, you will obey what He commands. This is true love and true worship.
