"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

"When we become too glib in prayer we are most surely talking to
- A. W. Tozer

"Some people read their Bible in Hebrew, some in Greek; I like to read
mine in the Holy Ghost."
- Smith Wigglesworth

"I am convinced that many evangelicals are not truly and soundly
converted. Among the evangelicals it is entirely possible to come into
membership, to ooze in by osmosis, to leak through the cells of the
church and never know what it means to be born of the Spirit and
washed in the blood. A great deal that passes for the deeper life is
nothing more or less than basic Christianity. There is nothing deeper
about it, and it is where we should have been from the start. We
should have been happy, joyous, victorious Christians walking in the
Holy Spirit and not fulfilling the lusts of the flesh. Instead we have
been chasing each other around the perpetual mountain.

What we need is what the old Methodists called a sound conversion.
There is a difference between conversion and a sound conversion.
People who have never been soundly converted do not have the Spirit to
enlighten them. When they read the Sermon on the Mount or the teaching
passages of the epistles that tell them how to live or the doctrinal
passages that tell how they can live, they are unaffected. The Spirit
who wrote them is not witnessing in their hearts because they have not
been born of the Spirit. That often happens." - A W Tozer

"With all your getting get unction." - Leonard Ravenhill
