“I want deliberately to encourage this mighty longing after God. The lack of it has brought us to our present low estate. This stiff and wooden quality about our religious lives is a result of our lack of holy desire. Complacency is a deadly for of all spiritual growth. Acute desire must be present or there will be no manifestation of Christ to His people. He waits to be wanted. Too bad that with many of us He waits for long, so very long, in vain.” A.W.Tozer

“I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from your impurities and from your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.”  Ezekiel 36:25-27
