“To cut off the sinner from all reliance upon himself, his merits and his powers; and throw him, naked and helpless, into the hands of the Holy Spirit to lead him to Christ in faith; should be the one great aim of the ministry”

“He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said,
out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water”
John 7:38
