"When I try, I fail. When I trust, He succeeds." - Corrie Ten Boom

"Great cathedrals and costly houses of worship dazzle our eyes
and stir the wonder of the passerby; mighty throngs stream through
their aisles every Sabbath; and yet there is a situation that chills
the hearts of many of God's wisest servants. It is a good time to
inquire, 'Where is the Lord God of Elijah?'" - Rev. E. K. Cox, 1929

"One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful
organization do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead
men make a football team." - A.W. Tozer

"We live in a day of itching ears but I have no commission from
God to scratch them." - Leonard Ravenhill

"A true love of God must begin with a delight in his holiness."
-Jonathan Edwards

"Religion today is not transforming people; rather it is being
transformed by the people. It is not raising the moral level of society;
it is descending to society's own level, and congratulating itself
that it has scored a victory because society is smilingly accepting
its surrender." - A. W. Tozer

"The early church was married to poverty, prisons and persecutions.
Today, the church is married to prosperity, personality, and popularity."
- Leonard Ravenhill

"Trying to do the Lord's work in your own strength is the most
confusing, exhausting, and tedious of all work. But when you are
filled with the Holy Spirit, then the ministry of Jesus just flows out
of you." - Corrie Ten Boom.

"We put men into pulpits because they have degrees. But you can
have 32 of them and still be frozen!" - Leonard Ravenhill

"We're so far removed from God's way of doing things- we think a
man is a good man if he can draw a crowd these days. Do you
know what Finney did? Finney preached sometimes, and the whole
congregation got up and walked out on him. That's a good meeting!
He sent them out horrified! I only preach for two reasons these days:
either to send people out that door blazing mad at me or blazing
with the peace of the Holy Ghost! That's all!" - Leonard Ravenhill.

"If you're going to be a true Christian, I'll tell you one thing amongst
others: it'll be a lonely life." - Leonard Ravenhill.

"If you look at the world, you'll be distressed. If you look within,
you'll be depressed. If you look at God you'll be at rest."
- Corrie Ten Boom

"Forgiveness is an act of the will, and the will can function regardless
of the temperature of the heart." - Corrie Ten Boom

"We will not be ready for the challenge of this hour until there is
genuine repentance and conversion in our churches... Christians
tend to divorce doctrine and practice. Some put all the emphasis
on orthodoxy, with very little day-by-day living to match. Others
major in experience, with little basis in Biblical teaching. One is
body without spirit, and the other is spirit without body. Christianity
is neither a corpse nor a ghost." - Vance Havner

"Whatever else you fail of, do not fail of the influence of the Holy
Spirit; that is the only way you can handle the consciences of men."
-David Brainerd

"With all thy getting, get unction." - Leonard Ravenhill.

"If the whole Church goes off into deception, that will in no way
excuse us for not following Christ." - Leonard Ravenhill

"Consider how immense the sum of the sins of the world must be! The
sins that one of us commits in one day are very numerous. If all our
proud thoughts could be known, and all our rebellious feelings against
God could be exposed, how vast would be the amount! But consider what
millions of millions of men have lived on this earth; what treachery,
what blasphemy, what murders, what idolatry, have defiled it in every
place, at every moment. Yet all these multiplied crimes Jesus can take
away; so great is the power of his blood. O that all the world would
come to the Lamb of God, that they might all be cleansed from their
innumerable transgressions."
-Favell Lee Mortimer

"If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road,
I don't want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at
all." - David Livingstone

"The more grace Christians have, the more clearly they can see the
contrast between holiness and sin. This will necessarily lead them to
pray more often, earnestly, and fervently, give them a disrelish for
the vanities of the world, and a sincere and hearty desire to devote
all they have to Christ and to serve Him entirely." - Ann "Nancy"

"I too have found a secret and I hope it will prove the defining point
of my life. It is not so much where I am, or what I am doing, rather
it is all about WHO is with me." - Alan Martin

"The Holy Ghost does not come upon methods, but upon men. He
does not anoint machinery, but men. He does not work through
organizations, but through men. He does not dwell in buildings,
but men. He indwells the Body of Christ, directs its activities,
distributes its forces, empowers its members."
- Samuel Chadwick

"Western culture has things a little backwards right now. We think
that if we had every comfort available to us, we'd be happy. We equate
comfort with happiness. And now we're so comfortable we're miserable.
There's no struggle in our lives. No sense of adventure. We get in a
car, we get in an elevator, it all comes easy. What I've found is that
I'm never more alive than when I'm pushing and I'm in pain, and I'm
struggling for high achievement..." - Dean Karnaze

"Determine to PRACTICE whatever you read. Christians
should be walking Bibles, living the truths written. The
Word is not only a guide to knowledge, but a guide to
obedience. A holy reading of God's Word, results in our
fleeing from sins, and practicing the duties commanded.
'I have kept my feet from every evil path so that I
might obey Your word.' Psalm 119:101" - Thomas Watson.

"To know what you believe, look at what you do." - Anonymous

"There is nothing so permanent as a short-term compromise."
-Ron Bailey

"Oh to fully realize the littleness of time and greatness of
eternity!" - Thomas Chalmers

"Idle hands? But the Master is calling for thee! Art thou willing His
call to receive? Are you idly wiling life's hours away? Will you go
that they might believe?"
- Anonymous

"The one thing that is said to have suprised God is that the voice of
intercession had ceased. 'And he saw that there was no man, and
wondered that there was no intercessor' (Isaiah 59:16). His delivering
mercy depends upon intercessors, who will put their shoulders under
the burdens of others..." - Samuel Chadwick

"Adversity doesn't build character; it reveals it."
- Anonymous

"Christ always identified Himself with the least, the last, and the
- Unknown

"Let us think often that our only business in this life is to please
God. Perhaps all besides is but folly and vanity."
- Brother Lawrence

"God's patience is infinite. Men, like small kettles, boil quickly
with wrath at the least wrong. Not so God. If God were as wrathful,
the world would have been a heap of ruins long ago."
- Sadhu Sundar Singh (1889-1929)

"The secret of Christianity is not asking Jesus into your heart; it is
Jesus asking us into His."
- Unknown

"The shortest distance between a problem and the solution is the
distance between your knees and the floor."
- Anonymous

"In the Irish Revival of 1859, people became so weak that they could
not get back to their homes. Men and women would fall by the wayside
and would be found hours later pleading with God to save their souls.
They felt that they were slipping into hell and that nothing else in
life mattered but to get right with God... To them eternity meant
everything. Nothing else was of any consequence. They felt that if God
did not have mercy on them and save them, they were doomed for all
time to come."
- Oswald J. Smith

"If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every
portion of the truth of God except precisely that point which the
world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing
Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle
rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved, and to be steady on
all the battlefield besides, is mere flight and disgrace if he
flinches at that point."
- Martin Luther

"If the doctrine of Christian union is true, then division and
sectarianism are a great and prodigious evil, and therefore ought to
be abolished. Who then will lay the axe to the root of this corrupt
tree to help cut it down?"
-D.S. Warner

"There is no Christian Gospel if history simply unwinds into a
meaningless puddle, if the cosmos simply escapes into a cataclysmic
black hole, or if the universe finally dies of exhausted energy.
Without belief in a biblical eschatology, there is no Christian hope.
Without a sense of perfect moral judgment in the end, the human heart
is homeless."
- R. Albert Mohler, Jr.

"To be where God is quietly talked about seems a lovely thing. But to
be where God really grips us is a risky matter. As long as a Living
God is about and given any chance at all, it will be found dangerous
to be in His presence. Dangerous, that is, to everything that is more
to our liking than it is to His."
- Dr. Paul S. Rees

"If rich men only knew when they died, how . . .
their relatives would scramble for their money,
the worms for their bodies, and
the devil for their souls,
they would not be so anxious to save money!"
- William Tiptaft

"On some positions, Cowardice asks the question, "Is it safe?"
Expediency asks the question, "Is it politic?" And Vanity comes
along and asks the question, "Is it popular?" But Conscience
asks the question "Is it right?" And there comes a time when one
must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular,
but he must do it because Conscience tells him it is right." - MLK.

"There is nothing, indeed, which God will not do for a man who
dares to step out upon what seems to be the mist; though as he
puts his foot down he finds a rock beneath him."
--F. B. Meyer

"Our circumstances are not an accurate reflection of God's goodness.
Whether life is good or bad, God's goodness, rooted in His character,
is the same."
--Helen Grace Lescheid

"It's exciting to live in complete oneness with the will of God. It is
never dull or static because it is not a one-time, once-for-all
commitment. It is something we have to work at constantly,
moment by moment." --Evelyn Christenson

"What else will do except faith in such a cynical, corrupt time?
When the country goes temporarily to the dogs, cats must learn
to be circumspect, walk on fences, sleep in trees, and have faith
that all this woofing is not the last word."
--Garrison Keillor

If you feel stuck, bring your whole self to Christ, not just the problem,
but you. Ask God to change your heart. Commit yourself to pray
to that end. It's God's heart to give good gifts to His children."
--Sheila Walsh

"Why do so many Christians pray such tiny prayers when their
God is so big?" --Watchman Nee

"If you believe what you like in the Gospel, and reject what you don't
like, it is not the Gospel you believe, but yourself."
- Augustine.

"If you study the Bible without applying it to your daily life, then
it would be better not to study it at all."

"Our Faith must be tested. God builds no ships but what He sends to sea."
- D.L. Moody

"God always visits his people when they reach the point of desperation."
- Stephen Olford
"Do not pray for easy lives, pray to be better men and women. Do not
pray for tasks equal to your strength, pray for strength equal to your
tasks." - Phillips Brooks

"If God sends us on strong paths, we are provided strong shoes."
- Corrie ten Boom

Four things you can't recover: The STONE after the throw. The WORD after it's said. The OCCASION after it's missed. The TIME after it's gone.

Gidday fichop ,
There are two main sites I get these from , Mikey's funnies and Revival list . I don't agree with all their thoughts but they do come up with gems from time to time . You Americans have a much more different approach to humour and other stuff than we do .

I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older Then it dawned on me . . . they were cramming for their finals.
