QUOTE (J. Edwin Orr) – April 22

April 22, 2014

orr“The life of the majority of churches and societies is sub-normal, stunted in growth, paralyzed instead of powerful. What is the trouble? It is just general backsliding…Churches, and all other groups of Christians, are just like individuals–either they are growing in grace or else they are backsliding…Pretence and disappointment-disappointment and pretence. This is the condition of multitudes of starved Christians. The author has been privileged to witness God’s power manifested in many genuine revivals–and it has always been noticed that those who are disappointed get a glimpse of new hope…those who pretend get shown up. “Search me, 0 God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts; see if there be any wicked way in me; and lead me in the way everlasting.” The important thing to remember is repentance is the prelude to revival. The Church must first Repent.”
~ J. Edwin Orr

In honor of J. Edwin Orr, a Baptist minister and promoter of Church revival and renewal,who died on this day in 1987.

QUOTE (Robert Lowery) – Mar. 12

March 12, 2014

lowryrsmWeeping will not save me.
Though my face were bathed in tears
That could not allay my fears,
Could not wash the stain of years;
Weeping will not save me.

Jesus wept and died for Me,
Jesus suffered on the tree,
Jesus waits to make me free;
He alone can save me.

Working will not save me.
Purest deeds that I can do,
Holiest thoughts and feelings too,
Cannot form my soul anew;
Working will not save me.

Waiting will not save me.
Helpless, guilty, lost, I lie,
In my ear is mercy’s cry;
If I wait I can but die;
Waiting will not save me.

Faith in Christ will save me.
Let me trust thy weeping Son,
Trust the work that he has done,
To his arms, Lord, help me run;
Faith in Christ will save me.
~Robert Lowery, “None but Jesus”

 In honor of Robert Lowery, a Baptist Pastor and hymn writer, who was born on this day in 1826.
