"I planted the seed... but God made it grow." I Cor. 3:6
Obedience is the highest form of worship
"Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is
easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For
the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who
find it are few." Matthew 7:13,14
As a young man I used to visit the U.S. headquarters of the Worldwide
Evangelization Crusade (W.E.C.), an organization committed to world evangelization
and to living by faith in complete dependence upon God's provision. The
following quotes have been preserved in one of my notebooks, recorded during
one of those visits. As Martin Luther once said, "The weakest ink is
stronger than the strongest memory."
"With all the promises the Lord gives us concerning prayer, it
is amazing that we don't pray more. It is a real enigma."
"We can all be busy -- but are we busy about the most vital
things?" Elwin Palmer
"Live in God, not your emotions. I'm an emotional person, too.
Live in God. In Him we live and move and have our being; not in our emotions.
Live in God." Bessie Adams
And quotes from Alfred Ruscoe, who served with C.T.Studd in the
Belgian Cong during the 1920's...
"The supreme test of faith is waiting, and it yields the supreme reward."
"Waiting, and being content to wait, can be the most difficult thing
"Norman (Grubb) says that what happens to you is incidental, but how
you react is all-important."
"Older Christians develop an appetite for for death -- because they
know life (resurrection life) comes out of death."
Rees Howell's paraphrase of Hebrews 11:1 and 2
"When my prayer has become equal to the substance of the thing prayed
for, I have the evidence of it in myself."
"The life of faith is 10% guidance and 90% giving."
