 (Heb.11:4)
 
G. Campbell MorganDied16th May 1945
 
 To use the terminology of the praying man is not to pray.
 
 Truth is a light which reveals a pathway in which man must walk. Truth always sets up a claim, makes a demand. Man cannot hold Truth. Truth must hold the man. As soon as Truth presents itself to a life it makes a demand upon that life.
 
E
very truth of the Christian faith taken hold of by the mind makesa call upon the will. In proportion as that claim is answered thelife is sanctified.
 
Any discussion on the doctrine of prayer which does not issue inthe practice thereof is not only not helpful but dangerous.
 
 The disciples did not ask the Lord ¶Lord, teach us how to pray· but¶Lord, teach us to pray·. A great many people know how to pray,but they do not pray. The request ¶Teach us how to pray·, will refer
 
simply to the theory. The petition ¶Lord teach us to pray· is of much fuller import and includes theory and practice.
 
 The reason why men do not look to the Church today is that shehas destroyed her own influence by compromise.
 
O
ur fellowship is with God, and fellowship is friendship, andfriendship means that partnership which, on His part, is theaccommodating of His strength to my weakness.
 
´
If the salt has lost its savor, wherewith shall it be seasoned? It isfit only to be cast out and trodden under foot of man.µ And that iswhat happens to Christian men and women who name the nameof Christ, and are not salt. They are trodden under foot of men;they are despised by their day and generation. The world itself 
 
holds us in supreme contempt if we profess to be Christian andare not holy.
 
 The Jesus that men want to see is not the Jesus they really needto see.
 
 The faith that does not come from reason is to be doubted, and thereason that does not lead to faith is to be feared.
 
Holiness is not exemption from conflict, but victory throughconflict.
 
Holiness is not freedom from temptation, but power to overcometemptation.
 
Holiness is not the end of progress, but deliverance fromstanding still.
 
 
God has foreordained the works to which He has called you. Hehas been ahead of you preparing the place to which you arecoming and manipulating all the resources of the universe in orderthat the work you do may be a part of His whole great andgracious work.
 
 The deepest passion of the heart of Jesus was not the saving of men, but the glory of God, and then the saving of men, becausethat is for the glory of God.
 
W
aiting for God means power to do nothing save under command. This is not lack of power to do anything.
W
aiting for God needsstrength rather than weakness. It is power to do nothing. It is thestrength that holds strength in check. It is the strength thatprevents the blundering activity which is entirely false and willmake true activity impossible when the definite command comes.
W
aiting for God means readiness for any command; that sense of perpetual suspense which listens for the word in order that it may be immediately obeyed. Those who wait for God are pilgrim soulsthat have no tie that will hold them when the definite command isissued; no prejudices that will paralyze their effort when in somestrange coming of the light they are commanded to take a pathway entirely different to that which was theirs before; having nointerests either temporal or eternal, either material or mental orspiritual, that will conflict with the will of God when that will ismade known.
 
R
evival cannot be organized, but we can set our sails to catch thewind from heaven when God chooses to blow upon His peopleonce again
 
 There is one sure and infallible guide to truth, and therefore, one,and only one corrective for error, and that is the
W
ord of God.
