No listening is healthy which is not mentally referred to obedience. We are to listen with a view to obedience, with our eyes upon the very road where the obedient feet will tread. "Doing" makes a new thing out of "hearing."

                                                                             ~ James Denney


When the door opens we ought to press in, sacrificing our lives if needs be for God... of course it costs life. It is not an expedition of ease nor a picnic excursion to which we are called. It is going to cost many a life, and not lives only, but prayers and tears and blood.
