  • Quotes from past saints

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

    "The weakness of so many modern Christians is that they feel too

    much at home in the world. In their effort to achieve restful

    adjustment to unregenerate society they have lost their pilgrim

    character and become an essential part of the very moral 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. Tozer

    "We need more speaking to God about men, than speaking to

    men about God."
    - Mother Cobb

    John Wesley one day walked to his mother and asked: "Mum,

    define sin for me". Her answer 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 by the wayside could not enter the soil because it had

    been trodden down by the passersby. When the world, with its

    business and its interests, has at all times a free passage, the

    heart loses its tenderness."
    - Andrew Murray

    "Nothing so effectually hinders hearing God's voice as opening the

    heart too much to other voices. A heart too deeply interested in

    the news, the literature, and the society of this world cannot hear

    the divine voice. It needs stillness, retirement, and concentration

    to give God the heed He claims."
    - Andrew Murray

    "There are blessing of The Kingdom that are only yielded to the

    violence of the vehement soul"
    - Samuel Chadwick.
