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.

Little sins multiplied, become great. There is nothing less than a grain of sand - there is nothing heavier than the sand of the sea multiplied.

Our own thoughts of divine things, our own efforts to work up the right feelings, must be given up; our own power to worship must be seen for what it is: insufficient. Every approach to God must take place under a very distinct and quiet surrender to the Holy Spirit.

In public worship all should join. The little strings go to make up a concert, as well as the great. Though you have but little grace, yet God's worship would not be complete without you.
Thomas Goodwin 1600-1680

Nothing searches and cleanses the heart like true prayer. It teaches one to ask such questions as these: Do I really desire what I pray for? Am I willing to cast out everything to make room for what God is prepared to give me? Is the prayer of my lips really the prayer of my life?

"My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me." Psalms 63:8
To have found God and still pursue Him is the soul's paradox of love, scorned by the too easily satisfied religionist, but justified in happy experience by the children of the burning heart.

The carnal man sees God in nothing, not even in spiritual things. The spiritual mind sees Him in everything, even in natural things.

But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. John 4:23-24
Teach us, we pray, never to attempt to worship you by our own will and way, but in spirit and in truth.

Next to pride, a lack of love was the sin for which the Lord had often rebuked His disciples. These two sins have in truth the same root: the desire for pleasing self. The new commandment that He gave them, the characteristic whereby all men should know that they were his disciples, was their love for one another.
