GARDINER SPRING
American clergyman
(1785 - 1873)

"Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you." Keep near to the fountain-head and "with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation."
      - [Devout]

Faith from, its essential nature implies the fallen state of man, while it recognizes the principles of the covenant of grace. It is itself the condition of that covenant. It is a grace which is alike distinguished from the love of angels and the faith of devils. It is peculiar to the returning sinner. None but a lost sinner needs it; none but a humbled sinner relishes it.
      - [Faith in Christ]

Faith in Christ is not an exercise of the understanding merely; it is an affection of the heart. "With the heart man believeth." To those who believe Christ is precious.
      - [Faith in Christ]

It is no certain evidence, that because the conscience feels he weight of sin, the heart is humbled on account of it; that because the conscience approves of the rectitude of the Divine justice, the heart bows to the Divine sovereignty. The most powerful conviction of sin, therefore, is not conclusive evidence of Christian character.
      - [Conviction]

It is one thing to mourn for sin because it exposes us to hell, and another to mourn for it because it is an infinite evil. It is one thing to mourn for it because it is injurious to ourselves; another, to mourn for it because it is offensive to God. It is one thing to be terrified; another, to be humbled.
      - [Repentance]

Serve God, and God will take care of you. Submit to His will, trust in His grace, and resign yourself into His hands with the assurance that the Lord is well pleased with those "that hope in His mercy."
      - [Faith in God]

The evidence of our acceptance in the Beloved arises in proportion to our love, to our repentance, to our humility, to our faith to our self-denial, to our delight in duty. Other evidence than this the Bible knows not--God has not given.
      - [Conversion]

The gospel breathes the spirit of love. Love is the fulfilling of its precepts, the pledge of its joys, and the evidence of its power.
      - [Gospel]

The great object of the Christian is duty; his predominant desire to obey God. When he can please the world consistently with these, he will do so; otherwise it is enough for him that God commands, and enough for them that he cannot disobey.
      - [Duty]

This is the spirit of prayer--sincere, humble, believing, submissive. Other prayer than this the Bible does not require--God will not accept.
      - [Devout]
