Dr Lloyd-Jones on Excess and Enthusiasm

"There is no problem of discipline in a graveyard; there is no problem very much in a formal church. The problems arise when there is life. A poor sickly child is not difficult to handle but when that child is well and full of life and of vigour - well then you have your problems. Problems are created by life and by vigour, and the problems of the early church were spiritual problems, problems arising because of the danger of going to excess in the spiritual realm".

Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones - "Joy Unspeakable" - Kingsway, Eastbourne (1995) - (p19).
