Prayerless, Christless Soul – Charles Spurgeon
A prayerless soul is a Christless soul. Prayer is the lisping of the believing infant, the shout of the fighting believer, the requiem of the dying saint falling asleep in Jesus. It is the breath, the watchword, the comfort, the strength, the honour of a Christian.
– Charles Spurgeon –
Oh the fullness of Christ – Hudson Taylor
When we look at ourselves, at the littleness of our love, the bareness of our service, and the small progress we make towards perfection, how soul-refreshing it is to turn away to Him; to plunge afresh in “the fountain opened for sin and for uncleanness”; to remember that we are “accepted in the beloved” … “who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” Oh! the fullness of Christ, the fullness of Christ.
– Hudson Taylor –
The difficulty and joy of life – Gladys Aylward
Life is pitiful, death so familiar, suffering and pain so common, yet I would not be anywhere else. Do not wish me out of this or in any way seek to get me out, for I will not be got out while this trial is on. These are my people, God has given them to me, and I will live or die with for Him and His glory.
– Gladys Aylward –
How to avoid conviction – Ichabod Spencer
Man can avoid conviction by truth, just as he can avoid burning by fire — getting out of its way, refusing contact with it — and no other way. So of the frost, so of the light of the sun, so of the thunder. These may be shunned, but not directly resisted. The truth is just like them.
– Ichabod Spencer –
from the sermon The Truth Held in Unrighteousness: Romans 1:18
God presence is indispensable – Ian Thomas
Man was so engineered by God that the presence of the Creator within the creature is indispensable to his humanity.
