“The tests of the Christian life, though outwardly not so terrible, are even more likely to overcome us than those of the fiery age. We have to bear the sneer of the world–that is little. Its soft words, its oily speeches, and its hypocrisy are far worse. Our danger is that we grow rich and proud, give ourselves up to fashions of this present evil world, and lose our faith. Or if wealth is not the trail, worldly care causes difficulty . . . The devil little cares which it is, as long as he destroys our love for and confidence in Christ. We must be awake now, for we walk on dangerous ground. We are most likely to fall asleep to our undoing unless our faith in Jesus is a reality and our love for Him a fervent flame.” (Charles Spurgeon)

“O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need for further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, so that I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, ‘Rise up my love, my fair one, and come away.’ Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wandered so long.” (A.W. Tozer from The Pursuit of God)
