The Holy Spirit is not only the efficient cause
and author of our spiritual life; but He is also
the sustainer of it.
We need fresh communications of
every step of our course, to keep before us . . .
the glory of God as our center, rest, and end;
the loveliness, beauty, and preciousness of Christ;
the evil of sin;
the transcendent excellence of holiness;
the sublimity and importance of heaven, and eternal life.
