Thy Servant, To Do Thy Will

“I am Thy servant to do Thy will, and that will is sweeter to me than position or riches or fame, and I choose it above all things on Earth or in Heaven.” ~A.W. Tozer

“All who wait upon the Lord shall rise higher and higher upon the mighty pinions of strong devotion, and with the unblinking eye of faith, into the regions of heavenly-mindedness, and shall approach nearer and nearer to God, the Sun of our spiritual day.”~John Angell James

“Jesus said you will know Christians by their fruit. As soon as someone says that I always see someone in the congregation and their just thinking theyre going, “Judge not lest ye be judged”, and I always go, “and twist not Scripture lest ye be like Satan.” Because thats exactly what youre doing. The only verse that most people ever memorize and that out of context. Judge not lest ye be judged means don’t be a pharisee who with hatred jealousy and religious animosity in your heart you criticize everyone in hopes of tearing them down so you can step on theyre broken bodies and achieve a greater renown in your religion. Cause the same Jesus who said judge not lest ye be judged says you will know them by their fruit you will know them by their fruit. And Paul the apostle said test yourself.”~Paul Washer

“Show the world the fruits of Christianity, and it will applaud; but show the world Christianity, and it will oppose it vigorously. Religious people attempt to overcome the world by removing themselves from it. Christians overcome the world by being otherworldly. There was a time when the church rejected the world’s ways. Now she not only uses these ways, but she also abuses them. The Christian way to solve the problem of loving the world is not by removing worldly things, but by delivering the heart from the grip of worldly things.”~Watchman Nee

“I know of nothing which I would choose to have as the subject of my ambition for life than to be kept faithful to my God till death, still to be a soul winner, still to be a true herald of the cross, and testify the name of Jesus to the last hour.  It is only such who in the ministry shall be saved.”~Charles Spurgeon

“I don’t have a vision except for Jesus Christ. I don’t want to be anything. I don’t want to be a bigshot. I don’t want to be important. I don’t want to conquer the world. I just want to be pleasing to God today and that is enough. That is enough. and strive as I might, I haven’t obtained that goal so why should I look for another?”~Paul Washer

“The single heart is a heart which is not only changed, converted, and renewed; but thoroughly, powerfully, and habitually under the influence of the Holy Ghost. It is a heart which abhors all compromises, all luke-warmness, all halting between two opinions in religion. It sees one mighty object, the love of Christ dying for sinners. It has one mighty aim, to glorify God and do His will. It has one mighty desire, to please God and be commended by Him. Compared with such objects, aims, and desires, the single heart knows nothing worthy to be named. The praise and favor of man are nothing. The blame and disapprobation of man are trifles light as air. “One thing I desire, one thing I do, one thing I live for:” this is the language of the single heart.”~~J.C. Ryle

“Some who have aimed at holiness have made the great mistake of supposing it needful to be morose, contentious, faultfinding, and censorious with everybody else. Their holiness has consisted of negatives, protests, and oppositions for oppositions sake. Their religion mainly lies in contrarieties and singularities; to them the text offers this wise counsel, follow holiness, but also follow peace. Courtesy is not inconsistent with faithfulness. It is not needful to be savage in order to be sanctified. A bitter spirit is a poor companion for a renewed heart. Let your determination principle be sweetened by tenderness towards your fellow-men. Be resolute for the right, but be also gentle, pitiful, courteous. Consider the meekness as well as the boldness of Jesus. Follow peace, but not at the expense of holiness. Follow holiness, but do not needlessly endanger peace” ~Charles Spurgeon

“The two poles could sooner meet, than the love of Christ and the love of the world.”~Thomas Brooks
“It costs something to be a true Christian. Let that never be forgotten. To be a mere nominal Christian, and go to Church, is cheap and easy work. But to hear Christ’s voice, and follow Christ, and believe in Christ, and confess Christ, requires much self-denial. It will cost us our sins, and our self-righteousness, and our ease, and our worldliness. All – all must be given up.”~J.C. Ryle

“Godliness in action! Presenting all that you are nothing, to all that He is ­ everything, you are committed to the Lord Jesus Christ exclusively, for all that to which He is committed in you; and you may be supremely confident that He who dwells in you as the Father dwelt in Him, is gloriously adequate for all that to which He is committed!”~W. Ian Thomas

“What is the secret to great living? Entire separation to Christ and devotion to Him. Thus speaks every man and woman whose life has made more than a passing flicker in the spiritual realm. It is the life that has no time for trifling that counts.”~Amy Carmichael
