Occupied With God

“If there be any order of men in whom it is utterly unbecoming to aspire after the honors of this world, especially after those honors which are accompanied by pomp and applause, that, without doubt, is the order ecclesiastical—a body of men who ought to be entirely occupied with a zeal for God, and for the attainment of that glory which is at his disposal.”
(James Arminius)

Abiding in Christ

“The branch of the vine does not worry, and toil, and rush here to seek for sunshine, and there to find rain.  No; it rests in union and communion with the vine; and at the right time, and in the right way, is the right fruit found on it.  Let us so abide in the Lord Jesus.”
(J. Hudson Taylor)
