Principles and Practices - October 22

The Source of Salvation

If a lost soul could say but once, 'O my God, I love Thee'! there would be no more hell for him ...but, alas, poor soul! it has lost the power of loving which it had received, and of which it made no use. Its heart is dried up like grape passed through the wine-press. No more joy in that soul, no more peace, because there is no more love.
