Feeding the Lamp of Piety

Taken from the chapter entitled “The Devout Widow” from a book available on Google Play called Pastoral Reminiscences by Shepard Kollock we have very helpful insight into the importance of direct views of Christ for daily piety.

“How true it is that “the just,” the righteous in Christ Jesus “live,” thrive in comfort, and flourish in holiness not by reflecting on their own sanctification, on viewing their own attainments, but “by faith;” a fresh, repeated, daily, never-ceasing exercise of faith upon the Son of God. ┬áThis is the most effectual way of feeding the lamp of piety and quickening the flame of holiness.”

Nothing can replace vital communion with Christ for the life, health, and usefulness of the believer!
