“If missions languish, it is because the whole life of godliness is feeble. The command to go everywhere and preach to everybody is not obeyed until the will is lost by self-surrender in the will of God. Living, praying, giving and going will always be found together.”

“kings. The most intimate knowledge of God is possible on one condition—that we search his holy Scriptures, prayerfully and habitually, and translate what we there find, into obedience.”
Arthur Tappan Pierson, George Muller of Bristol
