Prayer

“The Christian is a holy rebel loose in the world with access to the throne of God. Satan never knows from what direction the danger will come.”

That Incredible Christian, 71.

Anticipation

“One characteristic that marks the average church today is lack of anticipation. Christians when they meet do not expect anything unusual to happen; consequently only the usual happens, and that usual is as predictable as the setting of the sun…
We need today a fresh spirit of anticipation that springs out of the promises of God. We must declare war on the mood of nonexpectation, and come together with childlike faith. Only then can we know again the beauty and wonder of the Lord’s presence among us.”

God Tells the Man Who Cares, 168,170.

The Devil

“The devil is a better theologian than any of us and is a devil still.”

Man the Dwelling Place of God.

Wonder (losing it)

“How frightful a thing it is for the preacher when he becomes accustomed to his work, when his sense of wonder departs, when he gets used to the unusual, when he loses his solemn fear in the presence of the High and Holy One; when, to put it bluntly, he gets a little bored with God and heavenly things.”

God Tells the Man Who Cares, 92.
