"Our lives are to be indisputable evidence of the resurrection of 
Jesus Christ." - Carter Conlon

"The root of all sin is the suspicion that God is not good."
- Oswald Chambers

"Where reason cannot wade there faith may swim."
 - Thomas Watson

"Don't plan without God. God seems to have a delightful way of
upsetting the plans we have made, when we have not taken Him 
into account." - Oswald Chambers

"I know men, and I tell you that Jesus is not a man. The religion of
Christ is a mystery which subsists by its own force, and proceeds 
from a mind which is not a human mind. We find in it a marked 
individuality, which originated a train of words and actions unknown 
before. Jesus is not a philosopher, for His proofs are miracles, and 
from the first His disciples adored Him. Alexander, Caesar, 
Charlemagne and myself founded empires; but on what foundation 
did we rest the creatures of our genius? Upon force. But Jesus 
Christ founded an empire upon love; and at this hour millions of 
men would die for Him. I die before my time, and my body will be 
given back to the earth to become food for worms. Such is the fate 
of him who has been called the great Napoleon. What an abyss
between my deep misery and the eternal kingdom of Christ, which 
is proclaimed, loved, adored, and is still existing over the whole 
earth!" Then, turning to Gen. Bertrand, the emperor added: "If you 
do not perceive that Jesus Christ is God, I did wrong in appointing 
you a general." - Napoleon Bonaparte

"Prayer can do anything that God can do."
 - E.M. Bounds

"Revival is a renewed conviction of sin and repentance, followed by 
an intense desire to live in obedience to God. It is giving up one's 
will to God in deep humility." - Charles Finney

"What I have seen in the past 10 years of traveling - performing at a
church one day and a casino the next - is that a lot of people in the
church want to be entertained, and people in casinos want to be
ministered to. That's hard to understand, but I see a hunger in the
world that I don't see in the church." - Ricky Shaggs (musician)

"Sanctified afflictions are spiritual promotions." - Matthew Henry

"Those who complain that they make no progress in the life of 
prayer because they "cannot meditate" should examine, not their 
capacity for meditation, but their capacity for suffering and love. 
For there is a hard and costly element, a deep seriousness, a 
crucial choice, in all genuine religion." - Evelyn Underhill

"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For
whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose
his life for my sake shall find it."
-- Matthew 16:24,25 (KJV)

"To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning 
the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope 
means hoping when everything seems hopeless."
 - Gilbert K. Chesterton

"Don't try to bring the Word of God down to your level. Let it pull
you up to its level." - David MacDonald
