by Thomas a Kempis
Every man naturally wants to know, but what is the good of knowledge without the fear of God? …He who knows himself well becomes cheap in his own eyes, and takes no pleasure in the praises of men.
And foolish indeed is he who gives his attention to other things than those which make for his salvation.
The greater and better your knowledge, so much the more severely will you be judged, unless you have lived a more holy life.
This is the highest knowledge and the most useful lesson – to have true understanding and small opinion of oneself. To hold no high opinion of oneself, and always to judge well and highly of others, is great wisdom and high perfection.
from A.W. Tozer
There seems to be a great throng of professing Christians in our churches today whose
total and amazing testimony sounds like this: "I am thankful for God's plan of sending Christ to the cross to save me from hell. ...Surely we know the Bible well enough to be able to answer that: God's highest purpose in the redemption of sinful humanity was based in his hope that we would allow him to reproduce the likeness of Jesus Christ in our once-sinful lives!"
"I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored or turned off by worship is not ready for heaven."
