Love flowing from the heart of Jesus into the heart of a poor believing sinner expelling selfishness, melting coldness, conquering sinfulness, and drawing that heart up in a simple and unreserved surrender is of all principles of action the most powerful.”  Octavius Winslow  (1808-1878)

“Evangelical humiliation is the immediate consequence of a true sense of sin, and of a spiritual apprehension of pardoning mercy.  It consists in lowliness, or self-abasement of mind before God, and esteeming others better than ourselves; in having low thoughts of ourselves, and a deep sense of our extreme meanness, hatefulness, weakness, and unworthiness in the sight of God.”   (John Colouhoun; 148-1827)

“The more I understand of the character of God, as revealed in Scripture, the more shall I see that he must be sovereign, and the more shall I rejoice from my inmost heart that He is so.   It was God’s sovereign will that fixed the time of my birth.  It is the same will that has fixed the day of my death.  And was not the day of my conversion fixed as certainly by that same will?”  Horatius Bonar (1808-1889)

“Shame, guilt and woe would be my portion if I should leave any effort untried to unfold His glorious image.  Let me rather use every power of life and pen to magnify and exalt Him:–to beseech men to ponder Him—to search for Him—to receive Him—to love Him—to follow Him—to serve Him—to commend Him—to live in Him, and through Him, and for Him.”  Henry Law  (1797-1884)
