“How we have prayed for a Revival - we did not care whether it was
old-fashioned or not - what we asked for was that it should be such
that would cleanse and revive His children and set them on fire to win
others.” - Mary Warburton Booth

"All we need in Christ, we shall find in Christ. If we want little, we
shall find little. If we want much, we shall find much. But if, in
utter helplessness, we cast our all on Christ, He will be to us the
whole treasury of God." - Henry Bejamin Whipple

"Let those who have a strong, deep, abiding desire towards any
special form of service to Christ, take it as presumptive proof that
God intended them to do that work and that if in humility, faith
and dependence they undertake it, He will prosper them in it."
 - F. Guinness

"If Jesus Christ is not Lord of all - He is not Lord at all."
- Denny Kenaston

"Action without prayer is arrogance, prayer without action is
hypocrisy." - Jose Zayas

"Another real problem created by the doctrine of the divine
sovereignty has to do with the will of man. If God rules His universe
by His sovereign decrees, how is it possible for man to exercise free
choice? And if he can not exercise freedom of choice, how can he be
held responsible for his conduct? Is he not a mere puppet whose
actions are determined by a behind-the-scenes God who pulls the
strings as it pleases Him?"
"The attempt to answer these questions [those three questions raised
in the passage above] has divided the Christian church neatly into two
camps which have borne the names of two distinguished theologians,
Jacobus Arminius and John Calvin. Most Christians are content to get
into one camp or the other and deny either sovereignty to God or free
will to man. It appears possible, however, to reconcile these two
positions without doing violence to either, although the effort that
follows may prove deficient to partisans of one camp or the other."
God sovereignly decreed that man should be free to exercise moral
choice, and man from the beginning has fulfilled that decree by making
his choice between good and evil. When he chooses to do evil, he does
not thereby countervail the sovereign will of God but fulfills it,
inasmuch as the eternal decree decided not which choice the man should
make but that he should be free to make it. If in His absolute freedom
God has willed to give man limited freedom, who is there to stay His
hand or say, "What doest thou?" Man's will is free because God is
sovereign. A God less than sovereign could not bestow moral freedom
upon His creatures. He would be afraid to do so."
