Principles and Practices - December 23


Confidence in God means confidence in His Church. This confidence may be sorely tried: for God hides Himself, and the ministers of His Church are let do strange things: nevertheless a loyal, lasting confidence, bearing up according to faith and conscience, and resting on God supremely, shall never be confounded in the end.
