The Way Into The Holiest (1893)

  • Law operates in Nature.
  • Praise is one of the greatest acts of which we are capable; and it is most like the service of heaven.
  • Light views of sin give slight views of the sacrifice of Calvary, of the need for propitiation, and of the dread future penalty on willful wrong-doing.

The Secret of Guidance (1896)

  • We must be in much prayer for guidance.
  • Impressions within and His word without are always corroborated by His Providence around, and we should quietly wait until these three focus into one point.
  • Let us, therefore, not live in the summer‑house of emotion, but in the central citadel of the will, wholly yielded and devoted to the will of God.
