On this date, October 16, 1932, Samuel Chadwick died. He was a Wesleyan Methodist minister, author and educator. He taught at Cliff College in England. Leonard Ravenhill studied under him.
Here are a few quotes from this master writer.
“The soul’s safety is in its heat. Truth without enthusiasm, morality without emotion, ritual without soul, make for a Church without power. Destitute of the Fire of God, nothing else counts; possessing Fire, nothing else matters.”
“The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.”
