watchword, the comfort, the strength, the honour of a Christian"
- Charles H. Spurgeon

- Oswald Chambers

 "Ephesians 1 v 15  Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,
 16  Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
 17  That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 
 18  The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
 19  And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power"
- Apostle Paul
