True faith is the most wonderful thing in the world.

                Samuel Logan Brengle, Resurrection Life and Power
                 (London: Salvationist Publishing and Supplies, LTD, 1925), 103.

 

Faith may see difficulties but it does not magnify them…

Faith may be sore tempted, but it does not yield to discouragement…

Faith obeys…real faith obeys when there is no sign.

                Samuel Logan Brengle, Resurrection Life and Power
                 (London: Salvationist Publishing and Supplies, LTD, 1925), 104-5.

 

What is this fire? 

It is love…faith…hope…passion, purpose, determination…devotion. 

It is a divine discontent with formality, ceremonialism, lukewarmness…noise…

                (London: Salvationist Publishing and Supplies, LTD, 1925), 109.

“SEARCH ME, O GOD”

Search me, O God,
And know my heart today;
Try me, O Savior,
Know my thoughts, I pray.
See if there be
Some wicked way in me;
Cleanse me from every sin
And set me free.

I praise Thee, Lord,
For cleansing me from sin;
Fulfill Thy Word,
And make me pure within.
Fill me with fire
Where once I burned with shame;
Grant my desire
To magnify Thy Name.

Lord, take my life,
And make it wholly Thine;
Fill my poor heart
With Thy great love divine.
Take all my will,
My passion, self and pride;
I now surrender, Lord
In me abide.

O Holy Ghost,
Revival comes from Thee;
Send a revival,
Start the work in me.
Thy Word declares
Thou wilt supply our need;
For blessings now,
O Lord, I humbly plead.
