The riddle of the Christian life – Charles Spurgeon

The riddle of the Christian life – Charles Spurgeon

The Christian’s life is a matchless riddle. No worldling can understand it. Dead, yet alive! Crucified with Christ, and yet at the same time Risen with Christ in newness of life! Union with the suffering, bleeding Saviour, and death to the world and sin, are soul-cheering things. O for more enjoyment of them.

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.

The Church and the World Can’t Jog Together – Catherine Booth

The Church and the World Can’t Jog Together – Catherine Booth

When the church and the world can jog comfortably along together, you can be sure something is wrong. The world has not compromised—its spirit is exactly the same as it ever was. If Christians were equally as faithful to the Lord, separated from the world, and living so that their lives were a reproof to all ungodliness, the world would hate them as much as it ever did. It is the church that has compromised, not the world.

Bringing About a Nation’s Fall – FB Meyer

Bringing About a Nation’s Fall – FB Meyer

[Speaking on fornication/sexual impurity]
There is no sin which will sooner bring about a nation’s fall. If history teaches anything, it teaches that sensual indulgence is the surest way to national ruin. Society, in not condemning this sin, condemns itself.

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus – Lilias Trotter

Turn your soul’s vision to Jesus, and look and look at Him, and a strange dimness will come over all that is apart from Him.
