Trials teach us what we are; they dig up the soil, and let us see what we are made of. ~Charles Spurgeon

Ecclesiastical corpses lie all about us, the casket in which they repose are lined with satin and are decorated with solid silver handles and abundant with flowers.  Like the other caskets, they are just large enough for their occupancy with no room for converts.  These churches have died of respectability and have been embalmed with self complacency.  If by the grace of God your church is alive, be warned to our opportunity or the feet of them that buried thy sisters will be at the door to carry thee out as well.  ~ Dr. AJ Gordon to the spiritually dead churches

Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent, and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lamp-stand out of it's place- unless you repent.  Revelations 2:5
