The creeping wilderness will soon take over that church that trusts in its own strength and forgets to watch and pray."
- A. W. Tozer

"The first century money changers were in the temple, but they didn't have the spirit of the temple... They were out of sync with the whole purpose of the Lord's house. "The atmosphere of my Father's 
house," Jesus seemed to say, "is to be prayer. The aroma around my Father must be that of people opening their hearts in worship and supplication. This is not a place to make a buck. This is a house for calling on the Lord."
- Jim Cymbala

"14  Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.

 15  For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:

 16  To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?

 17  For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ."
- Apostle Paul, 2 Corinthians 2
