“You may talk about power; but, if you neglect the one Book that God has given you as the one instrument through which He imparts & exercises His power, you will not have it.
You may read many books & go to many conventions to pray for the power of the Holy Ghost; but unless you keep in constant & close association with the one Book, the Bible, you will not have power.
And if you ever had power, you will not maintain it except by the daily, earnest, intense study of that Book. 99 Christians in every 100 are merely playing at Bible study; and therefore 99 Christians in every 100 are mere weaklings, when they might be giants, both in their Christian life & in their service.”
- R. A. Torrey (ministry127.com)
Jesus said: “So then, anyone who hears these words of mine and obeys them is like a wise man who built his house on rock.” (Mat 7:24 GNT)
“It would have been well for the church of Christ, if the warnings of the Gospel had been as much studied as its promises.” - J.C. Ryle.
