Wisdom of the Ages

“If life has not made you by God’s grace, through faith, holy–think you, will death without faith do it? The cold waters of that narrow stream are no purifying bath in which you may wash and be clean. No! no! as you go down into them, you will come up from them”
– Alexander MacLaren
