"Are there not millions of us who would rather go sleeping to hell;
than sweating to heaven?"
-Thomas Watson.

"Passing along the road the other day, we thought we had found
a very beautiful knife. On picking it up we found it to be only a
handle without a blade. So do we hear very beautiful sermons-
well written and well read-but they are without a blade. They cut
out no cancers of sin and carve out no models of piety. Sermons
must have blades!"  -Author Unknown

"Several years ago... I remember coming across a book by Ernie
Reisinger called "Today's Evangelism" and I began to read it...
I got half way through that book and this is no exaggeration...
This is true. I fell out of that chair with such the fear of God upon
my life, and I pressed my face into those old boards of that room
in the city of Lima... I pressed my face as far into those boards
as they could get in fear... and cried out to God, "God, If you
promise not to kill me for the way I've preached your gospel, I
promise from here on out I'll never preach it that way again."
- Paul Washer

"The good old Puritans, I believe, never preached better than when
in danger of being taken to prison as soon as they had finished
their sermon. And however the church may be at peace now, yet
I am persuaded, unless you go forth with the same temper, you
will never preach with the same demonstration of the Spirit and
of power. Study, therefore, my brethren,-I beseech you by the
mercies of God in Christ Jesus,-study your hearts as well as
books; ask yourselves again and again whether you would preach
for Christ, if you were sure to lay down your lives for so doing?"
-George Whitefield.

"What will it cost me for God to break my heart?" - "It will cost you
absolutely everything." - Gerhard DuToit
