"Worship and intercession must go together, the one is impossible without the other."
"It is the unseen and the spiritual in people that determines the outward and the actual."

"Be rightly related to God, find your joy there, and out of you will flow rivers of living water."
"If we are going to live as disciples of Jesus, we have to remember that all noble things are difficult."
"Faith is not intelligent understanding, faith is deliberate commitment to a Person where I see no way."
"A man who has not been born of the Spirit of God Will tell you that the teachings of Jesus are simple."
"The agony in Gethsemane is the agony of the Son of God in fulfilling His destiny as the Saviour of the world."
"Tell God you are ready to be offered, and God will prove Himself to be all you ever dreamed He would be."
"Trust no one, not even the finest saint who ever walked this earth, ignore him, if he hinders your sight of Jesus Christ."
"Readiness for God means that we are ready to do the tiniest little thing or the great big thing, it makes no difference."
"The Cross did not happen to Jesus: He came on purpose for it. He is "the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."
"The centre of salvation is the Cross of Jesus, and the reason it is so easy to obtain salvation is because it cost God so much."
"A child of the light confesses instantly and stands bared before God; a child of the darkness says - "Oh, I can explain that away."
"Have I entered into the glorious privilege of being crucified with Christ until all that is left is the life of Christ in my flesh and blood?"
"Jesus Christ carries on intercession for us in heaven; the Holy Ghost carries on intercession in us on earth; and we the saints have to carry on intercession for all men."
"God makes us pure by His sovereign grace, but we have something to look after, this bodily life by which we come in contact with other people and with other points of view."
"Never allow anything to deflect you from insight into Jesus Christ. It is the test of whether you are spiritual or not. To be unspiritual means that other things have a growing fascination for you."
"A practical way of keeping personal purity unsullied in relation to other people is to say to yourself - That man, that woman, perfect in Christ Jesus! That friend, that relative, perfect in Christ Jesus!"
"The one passion of Paul's life was to proclaim the Gospel of God. He welcomed heart-breaks, disillusionments, tribulation, for one reason only, because these things kept him in unmoved devotion to the Gospel of God."
"Being saved and seeing Jesus are not the same thing. Many are partakers of God's grace who have never seen Jesus. When once you have seen Jesus, you can never be the same, other things do not appeal as they used to do."
"Until we know Jesus, God is merely a concept, and we can't have faith in Him. But once we hear Jesus say, "He who has seen Me has seen the Father" (John 14:9) we immediately have something that is real, and our faith is limitless."
"God has one destined end for mankind - holiness! His one aim is the production of saints. God is not an eternal blessing-machine for men. He did not come to save men out of pity. He came to save men because He had created them to be holy."
"Prayer is often a temptation to bank on a miracle of God instead of on a moral issue, i.e., it is much easier to ask God to do my work than it is to do it myself. Until we are disciplined properly, we will always be inclined to bank on God's miracles and refuse to do the moral thing ourselves. It is our job, and it will never be done unless we do it."
"The Cross was a superb triumph in which the foundations of hell were shaken. There is nothing more certain in Time or Eternity than what Jesus Christ did on the Cross: He switched the whole of the human race back into a right relationship with God. He made Redemption the basis of human life, that is, He made a way for every son of man to get into communion with God."
"Readiness for God means that we are ready to do the tiniest little thing or the great big thing, it makes no difference. We have no choice in what we want to do, whatever God's programme may be we are there, ready. When any duty presents itself we hear God's voice as Our Lord heard His Father's voice, and we are ready for it with all the alertness of our love for Him."
"If the Spirit of God detects anything in you that is wrong, He does not ask you to put it right; He asks you to accept the light, and He will put it right. A child of the light confesses instantly and stands bared before God; a child of the darkness says - "Oh, I can explain that away." When once the light breaks and the conviction of wrong comes, be a child of the light, and confess, and God will deal with what is wrong; if you vindicate yourself, you prove yourself to be a child of the darkness."
"Paul's realization of how Jesus Christ had dealt with him is the secret of his determination to serve others. "I was before a perjurer, a blasphemer, an injurious person" - no matter how men may treat me, they will never treat me with the spite and hatred with which I treated Jesus Christ. When we realize that Jesus Christ has served us to the end of our meanness, our selfishness, and sin, nothing that we meet with from others can exhaust our determination to serve men for His sake."
