 (Heb.11:4)
 
Octavius WinslowDied5th March 1878
 
Oh that among God's dear saints there were less talking of ministers, and more of Jesus; less of sermons, and more of thepower of the truth in their souls; less of "I am of Paul," and "I of Apollos," and more of "I am of Christ."
 
Y
ou know so little of God, my reader, because you live at such adistance from God.
 
Cultivate meditation my reader, this holy and useful habit. In aworld of incessant action, and in an age of restless excitement,we have great need to imitate these holy examples, and to retireto the "calm retreat, the silent shade," and there abandonourselves to devout meditation upon Divine, heavenly, andeternal things.
 
Doctrine should not outstrip experience.
 
Prayer is the truest, safest test for the spiritual state of the soul.
 
 
 
Grace is the germ of Glory,Glory is the full blown flower of Grace,Grace is the first degree of Glory,Glory is the highest degree of Grace.

Oh, it is an alarming condition for a Christian man, when theheart contradicts the judgment, and the life belies the profession!² when there is more knowledge of the truth than experience of its power ² more light in the understanding than grace in theaffections ² more pretension in the profession than holiness andspirituality in the walk!
 
Y
ou will know more of Jesus in one sanctified trial, than inwading through a library of volumes, or listening to a lifetime of sermons.
 
he life of God in the soul on earth is a life of communion of thesoul with God in heaven. Prayer is nothing less than the Divinenature in fellowship with the Divine, the renewed creature incommunion with God.
 
Are there things in one·s spiritual life, that you always seem to begoing to sort out, attend to, be obedient under God to,´tomorrowµ?
Y
et, tomorrow, always remains tomorrow? We aretold in Scripture to redeem the time well, and that includes notputting off to tomorrow what we can or should do today. 
 
 
he astonishing, the marvelous love, He has exhibited in givingyou His beloved Son to die in your stead, are cords by which Hewould draw your loving heart to Himself.
 
It is by an act of simple, prayerful faith we transfer our cares andanxieties, our sorrows and needs, to the
ord.
 
A believer may lose the answer to his prayer, by dictating to the
ord the mode, as well as the time, of answering. 
 
he love of Christ! Such a precious theme! Of it can we everweary? Never! Its greatness can we ever know? Never! Itsplenitude can we fully contain? Never! Its depths cannot befathomed, its dimensions cannot be measured! It passesknowledge!
 
Give yourself to prayer. Supposing your state is the worst thatcan be, your frame of mind the most unfavourable, your heartthe hardest; still go to the throne of grace. 
 
he smallest measure of real faith will take the soul to heaven.
 
he
ord never intended that His people should live on anythingbelow Himself.
he life within us is divine, and its nourishmentmust be divine. It is from heaven, and its nourishment must beheavenly; it is supernatural, and its food must be spiritual.
 
It must be admitted, that the character and the tendencies of theage are not favorable to deep and mature reflection upon thehidden, spiritual life of the soul.
 
When because of our state of limited knowledge, we cannot fully understand ² let reason reverently adore and faith implicitly trust.

This is wonderful! Such a blessing! As the saying goes -- "the more things change, the more they stay the same." I would guess that when we read about "a world of incessant action" and "an age of restless excitement", we wouldn't think of the 1800's. Certainly we are still greatly in need of quiet times of meditation.

wow - "A rope of sand, a spider's web, a silken thread, a passing shadow, an ebbing wave, are the most fitting and expressive emblems of all things belonging to this present earthly state"
