... "That though the saints at Corinth grew in these outward endowments [( speech, knowledge, spiritual gift )] they failed to grow in their spirit. Their intuition [(spiritual sense)] did not wax stronger. Increase in preaching eloquence, Bible knowledge, and spiritual gift is not reckoned as increase of spiritual life!"
"If the believer's spirit - that which is capable of communicating with God - does not grow stronger and keener, God judges that he has not grown at all!"
"No matter how much our mind, emotion and will may gain by speech, knowledge and gift, it is all deemed by God as vain if our spirit is not developing."
- - Watchman Nee, in The Spiritual Man , Vol. 2
“When we pray, we speak to God. This exercise of the soul can be best performed after the inner man has been nourished by meditation on the Word of God.”
“As my heart is nourished by the truth of the Word, I am brought into true fellowship with God. I speak to my Father and to my Friend (although I am unworthy) about the things that He has brought before me in His precious Word.”
“Through His Word, our Father speaks to us, encourages us, comforts us, instructs us, humbles us, and reproves us.”
- G. Muller, in “The Autobiography of George Muller”
“But the true spiritual leader is focused on the service he and she can render to God and other people, not on the residuals and perks of high office or holy title.”
“True greatness, true leadership, is found in giving yourself in service to others, not in coaxing or inducing others to serve.”
J.O. Sanders, in “Spiritual Leadership”
"Avoid every tendency away from the simplicity of relationship to God in Christ Jesus, and then prayer will be as the breath of the lungs in a healthy body."
