• “My soul was filled and overwhelmed with light, and love, and joy in the Holy Ghost, and seemed just ready to go away from the body. I could scarcely refrain from expressing my joy aloud, in the midst of the service. I had in the mean time, an overwhelming sense of the glory of God, as the Great Eternal All, and of the happiness of having my own will entirely subdued to his will. I knew that the foretaste of glory, which I then had in my soul, came from him, that I certainly should go to him, and should, as it were, drop into the Divine Being, and be swallowed up in God.” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

O God of burning altar fire by Amy Carmichael

  • O God of burning altar fire,
    O God of love’s consuming flame,
    Make pure the flame of our desire
    To win the lost to seek Thy Name.
  • There is no coldness, Lord, in Thee,
    Oh, keep us kindled lest we bring
    To our dear Lord of Calvary,
    Dead ashes for our offering.
  • Dead ashes, husk of corn for wheat
    Lord of our consecration vow,
    We gather round Thy wounded feet,
    We see the thorn about Thy brow.
  • Oh, by Thy cross and passion, Lord,
    Grant us this plea, this sovereign plea,
    Save us from choosing peace for sword,
    And give us souls to give to Thee.

  • “O beloved friends, there is a life on wings. I feel the streams of His life fill me and permeate my mortal frame from my head to my feet, until no words are adequate to describe it. I can only make a few bungling attempts to tell you what it is like and ask the Lord to reveal to you the rest. May He reveal to you your inheritance in Christ Jesus so that you will press on and get all that He has for you.” – Carrie Judd Montgomery
