“The whole of Christian Living, in my opinion, hinges on the way in which Christian people read the Bible for themselves. All sermons and addresses, all Bible-readings and classes, all religious magazines and books, can never take the place of our own quiet study of God’s precious Word. We may measure our growth in grace by the growth of our love for private Bible study; and we may be sure that there is something seriously wrong, when we lose our appetite for the Bread of Life”–F.B. Meyer, Light On Life’s Duties, 34.
“Church donors need continual evidence that they are giving money to a financially efficient ministry”–George Barna.
“It is not necessary to make long prayers, but it is essential to be much alone with God, waiting at His door, heartening for His voice, lingering in the garden of Scripture for the coming of the Lord God in the dawn or cool of the day. No number of meetings, no fellowship with Christian friends, no amount of Christian activity can compensate for the neglect of the still hour”– F.B. Meyer, The Secret of Guidance, 30.
“The sin of being uninteresting is in a preacher an exceedingly mortal sin. It hath no forgiveness”–Bishop William Quayle.
“With the faithful You prove Yourself faithful; with the blameless man You prove Yourself blameless; with the pure You prove Yourself pure, but with the crooked You prove Yourself shrewd. For You rescue an afflicted people, but You humble those with haughty eyes. LORD, You light my lamp; my God illuminates my darkness. With You I can attack a barrier, and with my God I can leap over a wall. God — His way is perfect; the word of the LORD is pure. He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him” (Psalm 18:25-30).
