"The weakness of so many modern Christians is that they feel too much at home 
the world. In their effort to achieve restful adjustment to unregenerate 
they have lost their pilgrim character and become an essential part of the
verymoral order against which they are sent to protest. The world recognizes
them and accepts them for what they are. And this is the saddest thing that can
be said about them. They are not lonely, but neither are they saints." - A.W.

"it is more important that God be glorified then that I be saved!" A.W Tozer

A foolish physician he is, and a most unfaithful friend, that will let a sick
man die for fear of troubling him; and cruel wretches are we to our friends,
that will rather suffer them to go quietly to hell, then we will anger them, or
hazard our reputation with them. -Baxter, Richard

We need more speaking to God about men, than speaking to men 
about God. -Mother Cobb

Consider this, Christian: that all your trialsand troubles, calamities and
miseries, crossesand losses which you meet in this world are allthe hell you
shall ever have!!  THOMAS BROOKS

Only when we are captured by an overwhelming sense of awe and reverence in the
presence of God, will we begin to worship God in spirit and in truth." -

John Wesley one day walked to his mother and asked: "Mum, define sin for me".
Her aswer was this: "Whatever weakens your reasoning, impairs the tenderness of
your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes away your relish for
spiritual things, in short, if anything increases the authority of the flesh
over the spirit, that to you becomes sin, however good it is in itself."

"It is not difficult to say what it is that hardens the hearts. The seed sown 
the wayside could not enter the soil because it had been trodden down by the
passersby. When the world, with its business and its intrests, has at all times
a free passage, the heart loses its tenderness." -Andrew Murray, from the book
"The Holiest of All"

Nothing so effectually hinders hearing God's voice as opening the heart too 
to other voices. A heart too deeply interested in the news, the literature, and
the society of this world cannot hear the devine voice. It needs stillness,
retirement, and concentration to give God the heed He claims. -Andrew Murray,
From the book "The Holiest of All"

"When alone with God, be alone with Him"  -Samuel Chadwick

"There are blessing of The Kingdom that are only yielded to the violence of the
vehement soul"  -Samuel Chadwick
