Plans & People

Quote for the day:

“Men are God’s method. The church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better men… What the church needs today is not more or better machinery, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Spirit can use – men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Spirit does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men – men of prayer…

The training of the Twelve was the great, difficult and enduring work of Christ… It is not great talents or great learning or great preachers that God needs, but men great in holiness, great in faith, great in love, great in fidelity, great for God – men always preaching by holy sermons in the pulpit, by holy lives out of it. These can mold a generation for God.”
