|Almost All Are Welcome | Mark P. Spinks, 2011||Submission|
The decision... had been that he would not be allowed in services from now on. Nothing else had worked. He would not be silenced; he would not voluntarily keep his seat. He had felt obligated to speak of teachings that were condemned by the ministers.

|Even unto the Death | Andrew Murray, 1900||Submission|
All through His life He had been "in all points tempted like as we are".... In this last hour of the powers of darkness they make one great assault on the very citadel of His being, and seek to tempt Him with the sorest of all temptations... the assertion of our self-will.

|Having the Mind of Christ | James R. Miller, 1903||Submission|
We say we want to be like Christ.... But what do we mean by being like Christ? Are we not in danger of getting into our vision of it, merely an easy kind of life, a gentle piety, a dainty charity, a fashionable holiness, a pleasing service?

|The Blessing of Weakness | James R. Miller, 1894||Submission|
Too many people think their weakness is a barrier to their usefulness, or make it an excuse for doing little with their life. Instead of this, however, if we give it to Christ, He will transform it into strength.

|The Handmaid of the Lord | Mark P. Spinks, 1998||Submission|
Now a handmaid's position in life is a very humble position.... they're the folks that are around to do whatever the mistress says to do.... It's not that she does great, big tasks all the time; it's the little things—I'm here; I'm ready for service; I'm at hand.

|Would Our Way Be Better? | James R. Miller, 1903||Submission|
Would it be better if we could direct all our own affairs?... If we could do so, no doubt many of our circumstances would be quite different.... We would have only prosperities, with no adversities; only joys, with no sorrows. We would exclude all pain and trouble from our life.

|Ye Are the Branches | Andrew Murray, 1897||Submission|
"I, the Vine, have taken you to be My branches.... I have surrendered Myself as God absolutely to you; I became Man and died for you that I might be entirely yours. Come and surrender yourselves entirely to be Mine."
