If you mean your hope of salvation should rise to any strength and solidity, study the word of God diligently. The Christian is bred by the word, and he must be fed by it.

Thomas Carlyle, that gifted author, when he passed the spot where he had last seen his wife alive, would bare his old head in wind or rain, his features wrung with bitter, unavailing sorrow. "Oh", he would say, "if I could see her but for five minutes, to assure her that I really cared for her throughout all that time! But she never knew it—she never knew it!"
We must give account for our idle silences as well as for our idle words.

All places are holy to holy people, and all engagements holy to holy men, if they do them with holy motives, lifting up their hearts to God. Whether a man swings the blacksmith's hammer or lays his hand to the plow, that which is done unto the Lord and not unto men is true worship.
