    “The best books...

    The best books of men are soon exhausted--
    they are cisterns, and not springing fountains.
    You enjoy them very much at the first acquaintance,
    and you think you could hear them a hundred times over-
    but you could not- you soon find them wearisome.
    Very speedily a man eats too much honey:
    even children at length are cloyed with sweets.

    All human books grow stale after a time-
    but with the Word of God the desire to study it increases,
    while the more you know of it the less you think you know.

    The Book grows upon you: as you dive into its depths
    you have a fuller perception of the infinity which remains
    to be explored. You are still sighing to enjoy more of that
    which it is your bliss to taste.

    “If Christ is not all to you He is nothing to you. He will never go into partnership as a part Saviour of men. If He be something He must be everything, and if He be not everything He is nothing to you.”

    Charles H. Spurgeon

    “One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organization do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team.”
    A.W. Tozer

    A.W. Tozer
    “The yearning to know what cannot be known, to comprehend the incomprehensible, to touch and taste the unapproachable, arises from the image of God in the nature of man. Deep calleth unto deep, and though polluted and landlocked by the mighty disaster theologians call the Fall, the soul senses its origin and longs to return to its source.”
    A.W. Tozer

    Billy Graham
    “Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen!”
    Billy Graham

    Charles H. Spurgeon
    “If you give your soul up to anything earthly, whether it be the wealth, or the honours, or the pleasures of this world, you might as well hunt after the mirage of the desert or try to collect the mists of the morning, or to store up for yourself the clouds of the sky, for all these things are passing away.”
    Charles H. Spurgeon

    Oswald Chambers

    Oswald Chambers
    “The golden rule for understanding spiritually is not intellect, but obedience. If a man wants scientific knowledge, intellectual curiosity is his guide; but if he wants insight into what Jesus Christ teaches, he can only get it by obedience.”
    Oswald Chambers

    Oswald Chambers
    “God nowhere tells us to give up things for the sake of giving them up. He tells us to give them up for the sake of the only thing worth having--viz., life with Himself. It is a question of loosening the bonds that hinder the life...”
    Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest: Selections for the Year


  • #21
    Oswald Chambers
    “Let the attitude of your life be a continual willingness to "go out" in dependence upon God, and your life will have a sacred and inexpressible charm about it that is very satisfying to Jesus. You must learn to "go out" through your convictions, creeds, or experiences until you come to the point in your faith where there is nothing between yourself and God.”
    Oswald Chambers

    Oswald Chambers
    “The most important aspect of Christianity is not the work we do, but the relationship we maintain and the surrounding influence and qualities produced by that relationship. That is all God asks us to give our attention to, and it is the one thing that is continually under attack.”
    Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest

    “Forgiveness is unlocking the door to set someone free and realising you were the prisoner!”
    Max Lucado

    Max Lucado
    “When my daughter was a toddler, I used to take her to a park not far from our apartment. One day as she was playing in a sandbox, an ice-cream salesman approached us. I purchased her a treat, and when I turned to give it to her, I saw her mouth was full of sand. Where I had intended to put a delicacy, she had put dirt.

    Did I love her with dirt in her mouth? Absolutely. Was she any less of my daughter with dirt in her mouth? Of course not. Was I going to allow her to keep the dirt in her mouth? No way. I loved her right where she was, but I refused to leave her there. I carried her over to the water fountain and washed out her mouth. Why? Because I love her.

    God does the same for us. He holds us over the fountain. "Spit out the dirt, honey," our Father urges. "I've got something better for you." And so he cleanses us of filth; immorality, dishonesty, prejudice, bitterness, greed. We don't enjoy the cleansing; sometimes we even opt for the dirt over the ice cream. "I can eat dirt if I want to!" we pout and proclaim. Which is true—we can. But if we do, the loss is ours. God has a better offer.”
    Max Lucado, Just Like Jesus

    “Forgive and give as if it were your last opportunity. Love like there's no tomorrow, and if tomorrow comes, love again.”
