    Service quotes by:    

To court apparent success by merely whipping up people's enthusiasm results in a work without God.

    Author: Watchman Nee

If we understand how much His work requires His great power, we shall be ashamed of our ideas and abashed by our self-reliance. We shall see that all our efforts are but "dead works."

    Author: Watchman Nee

Unfortunately, many of God's servants frequently are pressed by environment or other factors into working mechanically. As soon as the individual is aware of it, he ought to inquire whether such "mechanical work" is desired by the Spirit or whether God would call him away to other service.

    Author: Watchman Nee

We can serve God only with a clear conscience. An opaque one shall surely cause us to shrink back intuitively from God.

    Author: Watchman Nee

The burdens of the spirit differ from the weights on the spirit. A burden of the spirit, on the other hand, is given by God to His child for the purpose of calling him to work, to pray, or to preach. It is a burden with purpose, with reason, and for spiritual profit.

    Author: Watchman Nee

A believer should never regard spiritual labor as altogether joyous and jubilant.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Genuine spiritual work is aggressive towards Satan and travails in birth for believers. These in no wise can be termed joyous undertakings.

    Author: Watchman Nee

How many saints are there who serve purely because it is God's command? Or how many work just to produce fruits? Since God's work is eternal in nature, He demands men with faith to labour for Him.

    Author: Watchman Nee

God first works in us to will and then works in us to work for His good pleasure.

    Author: Watchman Nee

God has work to do in this world; and to desert it because of its difficulties and entanglements, is to cast off His authority. It is not enough that we be just, that we be righteous, and walk with God in holiness; but we must also serve our generation, as David did before he fell asleep. God has a work to do; and not to help Him is to oppose Him.

    Author: John Owen

All men, if they work not as in the great taskmaster's eye, will work wrong, and work unhappily for themselves and for you.

    Author: Thomas Carlyle

Labor is life: from the inmost heart of the worker rises his God-given force, the sacred celestial life-essence breathed into him by Almighty God!

    Author: Thomas Carlyle
