• Praying and sinning will never live together in the same heart. Prayer will consume sin, or sin will choke prayer.
  • Hell is truth known too late.
  • There is a common, worldly kind of Christianity in this day, which many have, and think they have enough—a cheap Christianity which offends nobody, and requires no sacrifice—which costs nothing, and is worth nothing.
  • A true Christian is one who has not only peace of conscience, but war within. He may be known by his warfare as well as by his peace.
  • Holiness is the habit of being of one mind with God, according as we find His mind described in Scripture. It is the habit of agreeing in God’s judgment, hating what He hates, loving what He loves, and measuring everything in this world by the standard of His Word.
