God is not looking for brilliant men, is not depending on eloquent men and is not shut up to the use of talented men. He is looking for broken men who have judged themselves in the light of the cross of Christ. When God wants something done, he chooses men who have come to an end of themselves, whose confidence is not in themselves, but in God. – H. A. Ironside

When we become too glib in prayer, we are most surely talking to ourselves. – A. W. Tozer

Some people read their Bible in Hebrew or Greek. I like to read mine in the Holy Ghost. – Smith Wigglesworth

I am convinced that many evangelicals are not truly converted. Among evangelical professing Christians, it is entirely possible to come into membership, to ooze in by osmosis, and to never know what it means to be born of the Spirit and washed in Christ’s blood. A great deal that passes for the deeper life is nothing more than basic Christianity. There is nothing deeper about it than what we should have had from the beginning of true faith. We should have been happy, joyous, victorious Christians from the outset. What we really need is what the old Methodists called a sound conversion. – A. W. Tozer

With all thy getting, get unction. – Leonard Ravenhill
