"None but He who made the world can make a minister."
—John Newton

"There's only one proof of the Holy Ghost in your life and that's a
holy life." - Leonard Ravenhill

"Every wise workman takes his tools away from the work from
time to time that they may be ground and sharpened; so does the
only-wise Jehovah take his ministers oftentimes away into
darkness and loneliness and trouble, that he may sharpen and
prepare them for harder work in his service." - Robert Murray McCheyne

"Our age is without passion. Everyone knows a great deal, we all
know which way we ought to go and all the different ways we can
go, but nobody is really willing to move." - Soren Kierkegaard

"God takes away the world, that the heart may cleave more to Him
in sincerity." - Thomas Watson

"The secret formula of the saints: When I am in the cellar of
affliction, I look for the Lord's choicest wines." - Samuel Rutherford

"The question isn't were you challenged. The question is were you
changed." - Leonard Ravenhill

"The whole history of the Church is one long story of this tendency
to settle down on this earth and to become conformed to this world,
to find acceptance and popularity here and to eliminate the
element of conflict and of pilgrimage. That is the trend and the
tendency of everything. Therefore outwardly, as well as inwardly,
pioneering is a costly thing." – T. Austin Sparks

"One loving heart sets another on fire." - Augustine

"What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better,
not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom
the Holy Ghost can use - men of prayer, men mighty in prayer.
The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men.
He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint
plans, but men-men of prayer." - E.M. Bounds

"His authority on earth allows us to dare to go to all the nations.
His authority in heaven gives us our only hope of success. And
His presence with us leaves us no other choice." - John R. W. Stott

"A servant of God has but one Master." - George Müller
