“What I have seen in the past 10 years of traveling – performing at a
church one day and a casino the next – is that a lot of people in the
church want to be entertained, and people in casinos want to be
ministered to. That’s hard to understand, but I see a hunger in the
world that I don’t see in the church.” – Ricky Shaggs (musician)

“With all your getting get unction.” – Leonard Ravenhill

“Worship renews the spirit as sleep renews the body.”
– Richard Clarke Cabot

“Sanctified afflictions are spiritual promotions.” – Matthew Henry

“Don’t try to bring the Word of God down to your level. Let it pull
you up to its level.” – David MacDonald

“Those who are God’s true witnesses are firmly anchored in
Him… God, in his loving foresight, often shatters their foundations
and thus they frequently find themselves thwarted… In this way,
everything they cleave to crumbles, and they are brought face-to-
face with their bare nothingness. Thus they are shown how total
is their dependence on God, and they learn to confess Him with
a pure and simple faith, with no other support to sustain them.”
– Johannes Tauler.

“Let me learn by paradox
that the way down is the way up,
that to be low is to be high,
that the broken heart is the healed heart,
that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit,
that the repenting soul is the victorious soul,
that to have nothing is to possess all,
that to bear the cross is to wear the crown,
that to give is to receive,
that the valley is the place of vision.”
-Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions.
