**The humblest followers of Jesus may know the divine will at first hand. It is every man's privilege to be fully assured in the will of God. The Divine attention to detail is amazing. Nothing is too trivial for Omniscience. Come straight to God. ...Lay all questions naked before Him and He will make it plain to you what His will is.

--Samuel Chadwick

 

**The higher a man is in grace, the lower he will be in his own esteem.

--C. H. Spurgeon

 

**Scripture is the school of the Holy Spirit, in which, as nothing is omitted that is both necessary and useful to know, so nothing is taught but what is expedient to know.

--John Calvin

 

**The only man who is at all competent to interpret the will of God is the man who is in harmony with God, and the only man who is in harmony with God is the man whose will is fully surrendered to God.

-Jerome

 

**Man cannot make a worm, and yet he will be making gods by the dozens.

--Michel Montaigne [1533-92]

 

**It shall greatly help ye to understand Scripture, if thou mark not only what is spoken or written, but of whom, and to whom, with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstances, considering what goeth before and what followeth.

**All the graces of Christianity always go together. They so go together that where there is one, there are all, and where one is wanting, all are wanting. Where there is faith, there are love, and hope, and humility; and where there is love, there is also trust; and where there is a holy trust in God, there is love to God; and where there is a gracious hope, there is a holy fear of God.

--Jonathan Edwards

 

**The Bible is a treasure. It contains enough to make us rich for time and eternity. It contains the secret of happy living. It contains the key of heaven. It contains the title-deeds of an inheritance incorruptible, and that fadeth not away. It contains the pearl of great price. Nay, in so far as it reveals them as the portion of us as sinful worms, it contains the Saviour and the living God Himself.

--James Hamilton

 

**Christian graces are like perfume; the more they are pressed, the sweeter they smell; like stars that shine brightest in the dark; like trees, the more they are shaken, the deeper root they take, and the more fruit they bear.

--John Mason

--Benjamin Rush, Signer of the Declaration of Independence

 

**I have been young, but now am old. I have spent a whole lifetime in battling against infidelity with the weapons of apologetic science; but I have become ever more and more convinced that the way to the heart does not lie through the head; and the only way to conversion of the head lies through a converted heart which already tastes the living fruits of the Gospel.

--Friedrich August Tholuck [1799-1877]
