We need a God-possessed generation of living trumpets to awaken the sleeping Church out of her stupor of self-indulgence and pride. We need an army of Spirit-filled Revival men. Throughout the centuries wherever the cause of Christ has been advanced such Christ-consumed prophets have been found pleading, praying, weeping and preaching. –excerpt from Andrew Bonar :Revival Man

No one ever said at the end of his days: ‘I have read my bible too much; I have thought of God too much; I have prayed too much; I have been too careful with my soul.~~J.C. Ryle

…in order to be a manifestation of Christ we must be in some way like Him. He is a Christian who follows Christ, who measures all things by the standard of His approval, who would not willingly say a word which he would not like to have Christ hear, nor do an act which he would not like to have Christ see. He is a Christian who tries to be the kind of neighbor Christ would be, the kind of citizen Christ would be, and asks himself in all the choices of his business life, and his social life, and his personal life, “What would the Master do in this case?” He who never reminded anybody of the Lord Jesus is not a Christian at all. ~~George Hodges (adapted)

To be crucified means, first, the man on the cross is facing only one direction; second, he is not going back; and third he has no further plans of his own. ~~A. W. Tozer

Don’t pray to escape trouble. Don’t pray to be comfortable in your emotion. Pray to do the will of God in every situation. Nothing else is worth praying for. ~~Samuel M. Shoemaker

God is not looking for brilliant men, is not depending upon eloquent men, is not shut up to the use of talented men in sending His gospel out in the world. God is looking for broken men who have judged themselves in the light of the cross of Christ. When He wants anything done, He takes up men who have come to the end of themselves, whose confidence is not in themselves, but in God. ~~H. A. Ironside
