“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of  the power will be of God and not from ourselves.”
(2 Corinthians 4:7)

“If you rely on training, you accomplish what training can do. If you rely on skills and hard work, you obtain the results that skills and hard, faithful work can do. When you rely on committees, you get what committees can do. But when you rely on God, you get what God can do.”
–Wesley Duewel

“Unless the Holy Spirit fills, the human spirit fails.”
–E. Stanley Jones

“It is our determination to be independent by being in control that makes us unavailable to God.”
–Richard Neuhaus
