The Bible Applied to the Heart
Psalm 119:9; Luke 10:26; John 5:39; 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16–17
The Bible applied to the heart by the Holy Ghost is the chief means by which men are built up and established in the faith, after their conversion. It is able to cleanse them, to sanctify them, to instruct them in righteousness, and to furnish them thoroughly for all good works.

Leading Christ into One’s House
Matthew 26:40, 43; Mark 14:37, 40; Luke 22:45
I, unhappy and poorest of men, how shall I lead You into my house, I who scarcely can spend a half hour devoutly—would that I could spend even that as I ought!
