People get so used to the dark that they think it is growing brighter.

    Author: Vance Havner

We are suffering today from a species of Christianity as dry as dust, as cold as ice, as pale as a corpse, and as dead as King Tut. We are suffering not from a lack of correct heads but of consumed hearts.

    Author: Vance Havner

The faith of Christ offers no buttons to push for quick service. The new order must wait the Lord's own time, and that is too much for the man in a hurry. He just gives up and becomes interested in something else.

    Author: A.W. Tozer

When we become too glib in prayer we are most surely talking to ourselves.

    Author: A.W. Tozer

If the Lord should always be swift to hear us, how slow should we be in hearing him, and while we have our desires, forget most of our duties.

    Author: Abraham Wright

How far are they from offering violence to themselves in hearing, who come to the word in a dull, drowsy manner, as if they came to church to take a receipt to make them sleep. The word is to feed; it is strange to sleep at meat. The word judgeth men: it is strange for a prisoner to fall asleep at the bar.

    Author: Thomas Watson

All the danger is when the world gets into the heart. The water is useful for the sailing of the ship; all the danger is when the water gets into the ship; so the fear is when the world gets into the heart.

Take heed of drowsiness in hearing; drowsiness shows much irreverance. How lively are many when they are about the world, but in the worship of God how drowsy. ...In the preaching of the Word, is not the bread of life broken to you; and will a man fall asleep at his food? Which is worse, to stay from a sermon, or sleep at sermon?

A greater sorrow than a man not seeing a need is the man who sees it and does nothing about it. But a still greater sorrow is the man who sees the need and can do something about it but won't.

    Author: Ed Cole

It is the black work of an ungodly man or an atheist, that God is not in all his thoughts. What comfort can be had in the being of God without thinking of him with reverence and delight? A God forgotten is as good as no God to us.

    Author: Stephen Charnock

We are too apt to rest in a bare profession of faith, and to think that this will save us; it is a cheap and easy religion to say, "We believe in the articles of the Christian faith;" but it is a great delusion to imagine that this is enough to bring us to heaven.

    Author: Matthew Henry

A man may be so bold of his predestination, that he forget his conversation.
