April 17 Evening Quotes of The Day

The World Needs a Guide to Perform Its Actions
Psalm 14:1; 53:1

None can imagine a ship to be orderly conducted without a pilot, nor the parts of the world to perform their several functions without a wise guide, considering the members of the body cannot perform theirs without the active presence of the soul. The atheist then is a fool to deny that which every creature in his constitution asserts, and thereby renders himself unable to give a satisfactory account of that constant uniformity in the motions of the creatures.

Saints Should Prepare to Suffer
John 15:18–20; 16:33; Romans 5:3–5; 2 Corinthians 6:3–10; 12:11; Colossians 1:24; 2 Timothy 3:12; 1 Peter 4:14

All whom the Lord has chosen and honored with admission into the society of his saints ought to prepare themselves for a hard, laborious, and unquiet life, replete with numerous and various calamities. It is the will of their heavenly Father to exercise them in this manner, so that he may have a certain proof of those who belong to him. Having begun with Christ his first-begotten Son, he pursues this method toward all his children.
