"There is a place where God, through the power of the Holy Ghost, reigns supreme in our lives."
- Smith Wigglesworth

"From the day of Pentecost until the present time, it has been necessary to be of one accord in prayer before the Spirit of God will work with mighty converting power."
- John R. Mott

"God means every Christian to be effective, to make a difference in the actual records and results of Christian work. God put each of us here to be a power. There is not one of us but is an essential wheel of the machinery and can accomplish all that God calls us to."
- A. B. Simpson

"It is that we ourselves are so shallow and sinful that we need to tarry before Him until our restless natures can be stilled and the clamor of outside voices be deadened so that we can hear His voice. Such a state is not easily reached, and the men God uses have paid a price in wrestlings and prevailing prayer. But it is such men who rise from their knees confident of His power and go forth to speak with authority."
- Vance Havner

"All Christian power springs from communion with God and from the indwelling of divine grace."
- James H. Aughey

"The Pentecostal power, when you sum it all up, is just more of God's love. If it does not bring more love, it is simply a counterfeit."
- William J. Seymour

"They spend more time in analyzing, in collecting materials, and in hard thinking than on prayer, on seeking God's mind, and on waiting for the power from above."
- Watchman Nee

"The God who made us also can remake us."
- Woodrow Kroll

"God aims first to renew man's darkened spirit... God's intent after that is to work out from the spirit to permeate man's soul and body."
- Watchman Nee

"God became man to turn creatures into sons: not simply to produce better men of the old kind but to produce a new kind of man."
- C.S. Lewis

"If thou shalt hate the things that thou didst once love, and love the things that thou didst once hate; if thou hast really repented; if there be a thorough change of mind in thee; if thou be born again, then hast thou reason to rejoice: but if there be no vital change, no inward godliness; if there be no love to God, no prayer, no work of the Holy Spirit, then thy saying "I am saved" is but thine own assertion, and it may delude, but it will not deliver thee."
- Charles Spurgeon

"Revival begins in the individual's heart. Let it begin with you on your face alone before God. Turn from every sin that might hinder.
Renew yourself to a new devotion to the Savior."

- Lee Roberson

"While others still slept, He went away to pray and to renew His strength in communion with His Father. He had need of this, otherwise He would not have been ready for the new day. The holy work of delivering souls demands constant renewal through fellowship with God."
- Andrew Murray

"To forsake sin, is to leave it without any thought reserved of returning to it again."
- William Gurnall

"Every Christian should be both conservative and radical; conservative in preserving the faith and radical in applying it."
- John Stott

"Many Christians 'stall out' in the faith when the call to total commitment is received or viewed as something too high or too hard to acquire...or they have never been taught that total commitment is Christ's demand for all His followers."
- Chip Ingram

"The Christian life is not adding Jesus to one's own way of life but renouncing that personal way of life for His and being willing to pay whatever cost that may require."
- John MacArthur

"More than once Jesus deliberately addressed certain issues that quickly diminished the number of onlookers. It was commitment that thinned the ranks."
- Chuck Swindoll

"You never hear Jesus say in Pilate's judgment hall one word that would let you imagine that He was sorry that He had undertaken so costly a sacrifice for us. ... you never hear a groan or a shriek that looks like Jesus is going back on His commitment."
- Charles Spurgeon

"It costs to be faithful. It cost Abraham the yielding up of his only son. It cost Esther to risk her own life. It cost Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego being put into a fiery furnace. It cost Stephen death by stoning. It cost Paul his life.
Does it cost you anything to be faithful to your Lord and King?"

- Anonymous

"A wife who is 85 percent faithful to her husband is not faithful at all. There is no such thing as part-time loyalty to Jesus Christ."
-Vance Havner

"At the very moment when the pulpit has fallen strangely silent about sin, fiction can talk of little except evil"

~ A.J. Gossip

"We have a strange illusion that mere time cancels sin. But mere time does nothing either to the fact or to the guilt of a sin."
~ C.S. Lewis

"You do not really care for God´s mercy or His comfort either, so long as you live in any sin. And it is well that you do not; for you can have neither. Your peace will be like a river, when you put away your sin; but not one word of true peace, not one drop of true comfort, can you have till then."
~ Alexander Whyte

"Abide in Jesus, the sinless One - which means, give up all of self and its life, and dwell in God´s will and rest in His strength.
This is what brings the power that does not commit sin."

~ Andrew Murray

"If I cast up a confessed, repented, and forsaken sin against another, and allow my remembrance of that sin to colour my thinking and feed my suspicions, then I know nothing of Calvary love." ~ Amy Carmichael

"Sin has the devil for its father, shame for its companion, and death for its wages." ~ Thomas Watson

"Waiting for God is not laziness. Waiting for God is not going to
sleep. Waiting for God is not the abandonment of effort. Waiting
for God means, first, activity under command; second, readiness
for any new command that may come; third, the ability to do
nothing until the command is given."

- G. Campbell Morgan

"If the Lord Jehovah makes us wait, let us do so with our whole
hearts; for blessed are all they that wait for Him. He is worth
waiting for. The waiting itself is beneficial to us: it tries faith,
exercises patience, trains submission, and endears the blessing
when it comes. The Lord's people have always been a waiting people"

- Charles Spurgeon

"But how much self-reliance obtains in Christian service. More
effort is exerted in planning and arranging than in waiting upon
the Lord. Double is the time expended on preparing the division
and conclusion of a sermon than on receiving the power from on
high because there is so much trust in the flesh."

- Watchman Nee

"Waiting for God means power to do nothing save under command.
This is not lack of power to do anything. Waiting for God needs
strength rather than weakness. It is power to do nothing. It is the
strength that holds strength in check. It is the strength that
prevents the blundering activity which is entirely false and will
make true activity impossible when the definite command comes."

- G. Campbell Morgan

"By perseverance the snail reached the ark." - Charles Spurgeon

"Biblically, waiting is not just something we have to do until we get
what we want. Waiting is part of the process of becoming what
God wants us to be."

- John Ortberg

"It is in the course of our feeble and very imperfect waiting that
God Himself, by His hidden power, strengthens us and works
out in us the patience of the great saints, the patience of Christ
- Andrew Murray

"Teach us, O Lord, the disciplines of patience, for to wait is
often harder than to work."
- Peter Marshall

'"Stand still" - keep the posture of an upright man, ready for
action, expecting further orders, cheerfully and patiently awaiting
the directing voice; and it will not be long ere God shall say to
you, as distinctly as Moses said it to the people of Israel, "Go forward."'

-Charles Spurgeon

"Prayer means not always talking to Him, but waiting before Him
till the dust settles and the stream runs clear."

- F.B. Meyer

"The fruit of the Spirit is not push, drive, climb, grasp and trample.
Life is more than a climb to the top of the heap."

-Richard J. Foster

"No one can get Joy by merely asking for it. It is one of the ripest
fruits of the Christian life, and, like all fruits, must be grown."

-Henry Drummond

"A born-again person ought to possess unspeakable peace in the spirit."

-Watchman Nee

"Assurance is the fruit that grows out of the root of faith."
-Stephen Charnock

"Do not be lazy. Run each day´s race with all your might, so
that at the end you will receive the victory wreath from God.
Keep on running even when you have had a fall. The victory
wreath is won by him who does not stay down, but always
gets up again, grasps the banner of faith and keeps on running
in the assurance that Jesus is Victor."

-Basilea Schlink

"Faith, and hope, and patience and all the strong, beautiful,
vital forces of piety are withered and dead in a prayerless life.
The life of the individual believer, his personal salvation, and
personal Christian graces have their being, bloom, and
fruitage in prayer."

-E.M. Bounds

"Faith is a living and unshakable confidence. a belief in God so
assured that a man would die a thousand deaths for its sake."
-Martin Luther

"If God is your partner, make your plans BIG!"
-D.L. Moody

"Beware in your prayers, above everything else, of limiting God,
not only by unbelief, but by fancying that you know what He can
do." -Andrew Murray

"God is not a deceiver, that He should offer to support us, and
then, when we lean upon Him, should slip away from us."

"Hope is much more than a mood. It involves a commitment to
action...What we hope for should be what we are prepared to
work for and do bring about as far as that power lies in us."
-John Polkinghorne

"A Christian will part with anything rather than his hope; he
knows that hope will keep the heart both from aching and
breaking, from fainting and sinking; he knows that hope is a
beam of God, a spark of glory, and that nothing shall extinguish
it till the soul be filled with glory."
-Thomas Brooks

"Let this one great, gracious, glorious fact lie in your spirit
until it permeates all your thoughts and makes you rejoice
even though you are without strength. Rejoice that the Lord
Jesus has become your strength and your song - He has
become your salvation." -Charles Spurgeon

"The sins against hope are despair, as anticipated failure, and
presumption, as anticipated fulfilment. In both these cases man
seeks to break out of his pilgrim existence and have his life
otherwise than from the hand of God."
-Ferdinand Kerstiens

"Taking up my "cross" means a life voluntarily surrendered to God."
- A. W. Pink

"Just as water ever seeks and fills the lowest place, so the moment
God finds you abased and empty, His glory and power flow in."
- Andrew Murray

"Oh that God would give me the thing which I long for! That... I may
see a people wholly devoted to God, crucified to the world, and the
world crucified to them. A people truly given up to God in body,
soul and substance! How cheerfully would I then say, 'Now lettest
thou thy servant depart in peace.'"
- John Wesley

"We take our stand at the cross and consent to be nailed to it,
voluntarily, actually; to submit to the pain whereby the flesh dies;
the hands are pierced that carnal work may no longer be done in
the energy of the flesh; the feet are pierced that no longer we
may walk according to the flesh; the brow is pierced with the
thorn crown that our head may not any longer be held up for
human diadems and fading laurel wreaths..."
- A. T. Pierson

"He who surrenders himself without reservation to the temporal
claims of a nation, or a party, or a class is rendering to Caesar
that which, of all things, most emphatically belongs to God: himself."
C.S. Lewis

"If we will only surrender ourselves utterly to the Lord, and will
trust Him perfectly, we shall find our souls "mounting up with
wings as eagles" to the "heavenly places" in Christ Jesus,
where earthly annoyances or sorrows have no power to disturb us."
- Hannah Whitall Smith

whatever I have placed in God´s hands, that I still possess."
-Martin Luther

"If I could hear Christ praying for me in the next room, I would not
fear a million enemies. Yet distance makes no difference. He is
praying for me."

cause to complain."

Peace is the consequence of forgiveness, God´s removal of that
which obscures His face and so breaks union with Him."

in trouble."
-Thomas Watson

"A born-again person ought to possess unspeakable peace in the spirit."
-Watchman Nee

- Matthew Henry

"Someone asked 'Will the heathen who have never heard the
Gospel be saved?' It is more a question with me whether we --
who have the Gospel and fail to give it to those who have not --
can be saved." - Charles Spurgeon

"A thing is not necessarily true because badly uttered, nor false
because spoken magnificently." - Augustine

"The safest road to hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft
underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without
signposts." - C.S. Lewis

"Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that
will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility."
- Augustine

"God doesn't call the equipped; He equips the called." - Anonymous

"He loves God too little, who loves ANYTHING (together with Him),
which He loves not for His sake." - Augustine

"If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most
for the present world were precisely those who thought most of
the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the
other world that they have become so ineffective in this." - C.S. Lewis

"If men can get to heaven by being good then the death of Christ
is the worst waste in human history." - Dr. Toussaint
