I shall never shrink from declaring my belief that there are no “spiritual gains without pains.” I should as soon expect a farmer to prosper in business who contented himself with sowing his field and forgetting about them until harvest time, as expect a believer to attain much… who was not diligent about his Bible readings, his prayers and the use of his Sundays.  

Our God is a God who works by means, and he will never bless the soul of that man who pretends to be so high and spiritual that he can go on without them.   

Bishop Ryle, Holiness
