Some Great Quotes

By: Ng Zhiwen

Souls are made sweet not by taking the acid fluids out, but by putting something in – a great love, a new spirit, the spirit of Christ. Christ, the spirit of Christ, interpenetrating our souls, sweetens, purifies, transforms all. This only can eradicate what is wrong, work a chemical change, renovate and regenerate, and rehabilitate the inner person. Will-power does not change us. Time does not change us – Christ does. Therefore, let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.  <Henry Drummond>

God will not go into the house of a person that did not want Him; that would be mockery. He will not break open your door to walk in; He may send His winds, and storm and lightning to beat your house about your ears, but He will not walk in then. He will come when you want Him. He has been trying all the time to get in, but He will not force His way in. If anyone will hear My voice and open the door, I will come in and dine with him, and he with Me. I will sit down at his hearth with him, and then he will come up and sit down on My throne. <George Macdonald>

A child kicks its legs rhythmically through excess, not absence, of life. Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, “Do it again”; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough… It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again,” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again,” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike: it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we. <G.K. Chesterton>

If the reader understands very little of the Word of God, one ought to read it very much; for the Spirit explains the Word by the Word. And if one enjoys the reading of the Word little, that is just the reason why one should read it very much; for the frequent reading of the Scriptures creates a delight in them. <George Muller>
