No church can be built up in gospel harmony without reaching out with gospel zeal,and no church can reach out with the authentic gospel unless at the same time they are being built up in gospel peace…
The full measure of the blessing of Christ does not rest on the successful,
but on those whose hearts are set on gospel ambition
and whose lives are given to gospel service.
— Christopher Ash
Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm… or they do not see it,
or they justify it … because they are absorbed in the endless struggle
to think well of themselves.
— T.S. Eliot
There is no magic in small plans. When I consider my ministry,
I think of the world. Anything less than that would not be worthy of Christ nor of His will for my life.
— Henrietta Mears
To strive in prayer for a person or for a cause means… to live, feel and suffer with that person or for that cause. That alone requires a great struggle.
— Ole Hallesby
Prayer is an interruption of personal ambition. — Rowland Hogben
