|More Abundant Life | Charles E. Orr, 2014
The abiding soul is a praying soul. In all abiding in Jesus there is a constant action of the soul, and this action is prayer.... The soul that prays, really prays, abides in a state of quietness, reposing on the bosom of God, and knows no fear, save the fear of God.

|The Church of God | Daniel S. Warner
The church is the body of Christ. And being the body of Christ, it necessarily includes all His members. Therefore to call an earthly building the church is ridiculous, and to call an organized division the church is subverting the truth.

|The Face of the Master | James R. Miller, 1903
The face of Jesus Christ must have been very beautiful... with the true beauty produced by a pure and spotless life. Sin disfigures the countenance, and there was no sin in Him.... What goes on in the depths of our being, comes up to the surface.

|Highways and Hedges | Grace G. Henry, 1958
There appeared... letters in blazing light, as plain as the handwriting on the wall in the house of Nebuchadnezzar. They appeared just above the group of little faces. The message slowly spelled out, "India's helpless little ones are calling you."

|Heavenly Life for Earthly Living | Charles E. Orr
There are spiritual elevations from which it is our privilege to have a vision of heavenly things.... Man will not live any higher than his vision of life. The more we see of heavenly things, the more heavenly we can live. Oh, let us live in a heavenly place!

|Remove Not the Ancient Landmarks | Ostis B. Wilson, Jr.
There has been a great cry... for liberty of conscience. But let us realize that this tendency generally runs into a liberal conscience, and there is a vast difference between a liberal conscience and liberty of conscience.

|Only a Servant | Kristina Roy, 1900
The sick landlady praised the servant, "He takes care of me like a son, and he is a wise man. He persuaded my husband to let him put up a stove in the kitchen.... Others barely do what they are told to; this one does the needed things without being told."

|How to Live a Holy Life | Charles E. Orr, 1912
The soul intertwined with the meek and lowly life of Jesus will form a character of deep piety and sincere godliness. The daily life should be intertwined with the life of Jesus. Let there be no reaching out for anything outside of Him.

|The Kneeling Christian | Albert E. Richardson, 1924
The wonder is... that we can ever get up from our knees if we truly realize our own need.... All these needs can be met by the riches of God in Christ Jesus.... But to share His riches we must pray, "for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him."

|Odors from Golden Vials | Charles E. Orr, 1912
Those who have been praying for years and have the closest intimacy with God have a desire to know still more about prayer. How little we yet know of God! It is true that He has taught us many glorious things of Himself... but there is much more to learn.

Today it is your happy privilege to prove, as never before, your loyal confidence in the Lord by starting out with Him on a life and walk of faith, lived moment by moment in absolute and childlike trust in Him.
