Sunday Citation

“Remember, the growth of a believer is not like a mushroom—but like an oak, which increases slowly indeed—but surely.

“Many suns, showers, and frosts, pass upon it before it comes to perfection. And in winter, when it seems to be dead—it is gathering strength at the root.

“Be humble, watchful, and diligent in the means, and endeavor to look through all, and fix your eye upon Jesus—and all shall be well.”

-John Newton (1725-1807) in Letters of John Newton
