"He who has no fire in himself cannot warm others."
When principles that run against your deepest convictions begin to win the day,
then battle is your calling, and peace has become sin;
you must, at the price of dearest peace, lay your convictions bare
before friend and enemy, with all the fire of your faith.
- Abraham Kuyper
Christianity must mean everything to us
before it can mean anything to others.
- Donald Soper
"The winds of God are always blowing,
but you must set the sails."
"He makes the winds His messengers,
Flaming fire His ministers."
"Are they not all ministering spirits,
sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?"
"No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or puts it under a bed.
Instead, he puts it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light."
Jehovah fill me with your teachings
and make that I may arouse enthusiasm by others.
