1.
Godly parents cannot convert their children.  God alone can do this.  But they can lead them to Jesus, and bring them up in the fear of the Lord.  And when they have done this, they have done all they can do; for the Holy Spirit alone can change the heart.  They must be born again.  Christ has said it.  It is not a change of sentiment, nor an outward reformation of life; it is a new heart implanted by the Holy Spirit.

When Christians meet together, do they not talk too much about religion, preachers, and sermons? I cannot but think, that if they communed less about religion, and more of Jesus, it would give a higher tone of spirituality to their conversation, and prove more refreshing to the soul. He would then oftener draw near, and make Himself one in their midst, and talk with them by the way.

Is it not strange that we can for one moment lose sight of heaven, and the increasing glory; and grovel in the dust to gather pebbles, for the pleasure of throwing them afterwards away?
