K. P. Yohannan offers a challenge to us about being willing to suffer for the cause of Jesus Christ. A short post containing a quotation from “Against the Wind.”
I share a quote by A. W. Tozer in the Pursuit of God. In 1949 Tozer thought the church was missing something, it is still lost.
A comment made by Martyn Lloyd-Jones in the introduction to a collection of his sermons on the Sermon on the Mount is still relevant today. We need to be honest about the Church’s failures, repent and begin again.
