(Heb.

11:4)

Albert B. Simpson Died 29th October 1919 

Superficial Christians are apt to be eccentric.  I would rather play with forked lightning, or take in my hand

living wires with their fiery current, than speak a reckless word against any servant of Christ, or idly repeat the slanderous darts which thousands of Christian are hurling on others. 

s long as you want anything very much, especially more than you want God, it is an idol. 

Forget yourself and live for others, for it is more blessed to give

than to receive. 

Difficulties and obstacles are God's challenges to faith. When

hindrances confront us in the path of duty, we are to recognize them as vessels for faith to fill with the fullness and allsufficiency of Jesus. 

I want the love that cannot help but love; Loving, like God, for the

very sake of love. 
We begin life with the natural, next we come into the spiritual;

but then, when we have truly received the kingdom of God and His righteousness, the natural is added to the spiritual, and we are able to receive the gifts of His providence and the blessings of life without becoming centered in them or allowing them to separate us from Him. 
There is no wonder more supernatural and divine in the life of a

believer than the mystery and ministry of prayer...the hand of the child touching the arm of the Father and moving the wheel of the universe. 
Often we want people to pray for us and help us, but we always

defeat our object when we look too much to them and lean upon them. 
Christ is not a reservoir but a spring. His life is continual, active

and ever passing on with an outflow as necessary as its inflow. If we do not perpetually draw the fresh supply from the living Fountain, we shall either grow stagnant or empty, It is, therefore, not so much a perpetual fullness as a perpetual filling. 
When you cannot rejoice in feelings, circumstances or conditions,

rejoice in the Lord. 

divided heart loses both worlds. 

The blessed Lord condensed it all into one single message of

eternal comfort spoken to the disciples on the Sea of Galilee, It is I, be not afraid. He is the antidote to fear; He is the remedy for trouble; He is the substance and the sum of deliverance. 

The Bible stands apart from all other books, and has survived

and will survive all the attacks of its enemies. 
When you become satisfied with God, however, everything else so

loses its charm that He can give it to you without harm. 

friend... said, "You were healed by faith." "Oh, no," I said, "I was healed by Christ." What is the difference? There is a great difference. There came a time when even faith seemed to come between me and Jesus. I thought I should have to work up the faith, so I laboured to get the faith. At last I thought I had it; that if I put my whole weight upon it, it would hold. I said, when I thought I had got the faith, "Heal me." I was trusting in myself, in my own heart, in my own faith. I was asking the Lord to do something for me because of something in me, not because of something in Him. 

Our God has boundless resources. The only limit is in us. Our

asking, our thinking, our praying are too small. Our expectations are too limited. 
God does not so much want us to do things as to let people see

what He can do. 
The human body has been called the microcosm of the universe,

a little world of wonders and a monument of divine wisdom and power, sufficient to convince the most incredulous mind of the existence of the Great Designer. 
One touch of Christ is worth a lifetime of struggling.  One of the best results of temptation is that it shows us what is

in our hearts. 

The Christian that is bound by his own horizon, the church that

lives simply for itself, is bound to die a spiritual death and sink into stagnancy and corruption. We never can thank God enough for giving us not only a whole Gospel to believe, but a whole world to give it to. 
Anything is better than compromise, apathy, and paralysis.  It is the person of Jesus Christ we want. Plenty of people get the

idea and do not get anything out of it. They get it into their head, and it into their conscience, and it into their will; but somehow they do not get Him into their life and spirit, because they have only that which is the outward expression and symbol of the spiritual reality. 
We must learn to live on the heavenly side and look at things

from above. To contemplate all things as God sees them, as Christ beholds them, overcomes sin, defies Satan, dissolves perplexities, lifts us above trials, separates us from the world and conquers fear of death. 
I like to interpose in all of my appointments, if the Lord wills.  Once it was the blessing, Now it is the Lord;

Once it was the feeling, Now it is His Word. Once His gifts I wanted, Now the Giver own; Once I sought for healing, Now Himself alone. ¶Friend, remember that it is better to read 1 quote 10 times (meditatively) than to read 10 quotes 1 time (superficially).·
