“From every town, village, and little hamlet in England, wherever it may be, there is a road to London… and so from every text in Scripture there is a road to the metropolis of the Scriptures, that is Christ. Your business is, when you get to a text, to say, ‘Now, what is the road to Christ?’ and then preach a sermon, running along the road towards the great metropolis— Christ.”
“I believe on the Name of the Son of God. Therefore I am in Him, having Redemption through His Blood, and Life by His Spirit. And He is in me, and all fulness is in Him. To Him I belong, by purchase, conquest, and self-surrender. To me He belongs, for all my hourly need. There is no cloud between my Lord and me. There is no difficulty, inward or outward, which He is not ready to meet in me to-day. I believe I have received not the Spirit of fearfulness but of power and of love and of a sound mind.(2 Tim. 1:7). The Lord is my Keeper. Amen.”
– Handley CG Moule (1841-1920)
Once it was the blessing, now it is the Lord; once it was the feeling, now it is His Word.
Once His gifts I wanted, now the Giver own; once I sought for healing, now Himself alone.
Once ’twas painful trying, now ’tis perfect trust; once a half salvation, now the uttermost.
Once ’twas ceaseless holding, now He holds me fast; once ’twas constant drifting, now my anchor’s cast.
Once ’twas busy planning, now ’tis trustful prayer; once ’twas anxious caring, now He has the care.
Once ’twas what I wanted, now what Jesus says; once ’twas constant asking, now ’tis ceaseless praise.
Once it was my working, His it hence shall be; once I tried to use Him, now He uses me.
Once the power I wanted, now the mighty One; once for self I labored, now for Him alone.
Once I hoped in Jesus, now I know He’s mine; once my lamps were dying, now they brightly shine.
Once for death I waited, now His coming hail; and my hopes are anchored, safe within the veil!”

One of the features of the deeperChristian e-newsletter is the quote section:
“Men are God’s method. The Church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better men.”

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
– CS Lewis
“A true leader must have enough backbone to stand alone—even when the crowd wants to take the easy road home. A true leader cannot be dependent on companionship for his or her security, but must learn to trust in God alone.”
