Do I love the Holy Spirit? - George Burder
Do I love the Holy Spirit? Do I honor him as the great Author of light and life, grace and comfort? Do I maintain a deep sense of my dependence on his agency in all my religious performances? Do I desire my heart to be his temple? Am I cautious lest I quench his holy motions, or grieve him by my sins? Am I sensible that without his influence I cannot pray, hear, read, communicate, nor examine myself as I ought?
George Burder 1752-1832
Quoted in the book A Pastor's Counsel: Wise Words for Weary, Wounded, and Wandering Sheep
