One fiery trial!

(Octavius Winslow, "The God of Comfort")

One fiery trial, sanctified by the grace of the Holy Spirit, has done more to break up the crusted ground of the heart, to penetrate beneath the surface, to dissect, and winnow, and separate, than a lifetime of reading and hearing could have done.

Oh, what secret sins have been detected, what carelessness of walk has been revealed, what spiritual and unsuspected declension of soul has been discovered, all leading to deep self loathing, and to the laying the mouth in the dust before God!
