The Devoted Life: Thoughts On Holiness By Men Of God

“Devotion signifies a life given, or devoted, to God. He therefore is the devout man, who lives no longer to his own will, or the way and spirit of the world, but to the sole will of God, who considers God in everything, who serves God in everything, who makes all the parts of his common life, parts of piety, by doing everything in the name of God, and under such rules as are conformable to His glory.”~~ William Law

“Let a man set his heart only on doing the will of God and he is instantly free. If we understand our first and sole duty to consist of loving God supremely and loving everyone, even our enemies, for God’s dear sake, then we can enjoy spiritual tranquility under every circumstance.” ~~A. W. Tozer

“The most efficient agents in disseminating the knowledge of God, in prosecuting His work upon the earth and in standing as a breakwater against the billows of evil, have been praying church leaders. God depends upon them, employs them, and blesses them.”~~ E. M. Bounds

“To be right with God has often meant to be in trouble with men.” ~~A. W. Tozer”

“If we could live every moment of every day under the eye of God, if we did every act in the light of the judgment seat, if we sold every article in the light of the judgment seat, if we prayed every prayer in the light of the judgment seat, if we tithed all our possessions in the light of the judgment seat, if we preachers prepared every sermon with one eye on damned humanity and the other on the judgment seat – then we would have a Holy Ghost revival that would shake this earth and that, in no time at all, would liberate millions of precious souls.” ~~A. W. Tozer

“No one ever said at the end of his days: ‘I have read my bible too much; I have thought of God too much; I have prayed too much; I have been too careful with my soul.”~~J.C. Ryle

“Many ordinary treasures may be denied the man who has God, or if he is allowed to have them, the enjoyment of them will be so tempered that they will never be necessary to his happiness. Or if he must see them go, one after one, he will scarcely feel a sense of loss.”~~ A. W. Tozer

“I have loved to hear my Lord spoken of, and wherever I have seen the print of His shoe in the earth, there
have I coveted to put mine also.” ~~John Bunyan

“To be crucified means, first, the man on the cross is facing only one direction; second, he is not going
back; and third he has no further plans of his own.” ~~A. W. Tozer
