Sin – Temptation

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.

Charles Spurgeon’s One Prayer

I have now concentrated all my prayers into one, and that one prayer is this, that I may die to self, and live wholly to him.

Confess Your Sins – DL Moody

Confess Your Sins – DL Moody

There are men today who are in darkness and bondage because they are not willing to turn from their sins and confess them. I do not know how a man can hope to be forgiven if he is not willing to confess his sins.

The Price of Revival – Roy Hession

The Price of Revival – Roy Hession

We sometimes talk about the price of revival, and we need to be very careful as to what we mean when we speak like this. We may place that price so high that we put revival right beyond the reach of the ordinary run of mortals. Maybe that is our way of attempting to justify God, that He has not yet, apparently, given the revival His people need. But that is a wrong done to God and a cruelty done to his church. There is without doubt a price to be paid for revival, but it is not of necessity the long nights of prayer or excruciating sacrifices, but of simply humbling pride to repent of sin.

Rest for the heavy-laden – Hudson Taylor

Rest for the heavy-laden – Hudson Taylor

To every toiling, heavy-laden sinner, Jesus says, “Come to me and rest.” But there are many toiling, heavy-laden believers, too. For them this same invitation is meant. Note well the words of Jesus, if you are heavy-laden with your service… “Come to me and rest.” Never, never did Christ send a heavy laden one to work.
