Worthy Sayings of Great Christians
The Church has halted somewhere between Calvary and Pentecost.
~J. I. Brice~
How shall I feel at the judgment, if multitudes of missed opportunities pass before me in full review, and all my excuses prove to be disguises of my cowardice and pride?
~Dr. W. E. Sangster~
O Living Stream! O Gracious Rain!
None wait for Thee, and wait in vain.
Revival - the inrush of the Holy Spirit into the body that threatens to become a corpse.
~D. M. Panton~

Until self-effacing men return again to spiritual leadership, we may expect a progressive deterioration in the quality of popular Christianity year after year till we reach the point where the grieved Holy Spirit withdraws - like the Shekinah from the temple.
~Dr. A. W. Tozer~
No man is ever fully accepted until he has, first of all, been utterly rejected.
No boasting for me ... none! - except in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me and I crucified to the world.
~Galatians 6:14 (Moffatt's Translation~
If I had a thousand heads I would rather have them all cutoff then to revoke.
I fear not the tyranny of man, neither yet what the devil can invent against me.
The business of the truth is not to be deserted even to the sacrifice of our lives, for we live not for this age of ours, nor the princes, but for the Lord.
A baptism of holiness, a demonstration of godly living is the crying need of our day.
To bring fire on earth He came;
Kindled in some hearts it is,
But O that ALL might catch the blaze,
And ALL partake the glorious bliss.
The baptism of the heaven-descended Dove,
My heart the altar, and Thy love the flame.
Come as the fire, and purge our hearts
With sacrificial flame;
Let our whole soul an offering be
To our Redeemer's Name.
The same church members who yell like Comanche Indians at a ball game on Saturday sit like wooden Indians in church on Sunday.
There can be no revival when Mr. Amen and Mr. Wet-Eyes are not found in the audience.
