O preserve your love to God – keep it flaming on the altar of your heart! Love is like oil to the wheels – it quickens us in God’s service. Does love grow cool? Make use of ordinances as sacred fuel to keep the holy fire burning.
Singing God’s praise is a work of the most meditation of any we perform in public. It keeps the heart longest upon the thing spoken. Prayer and hearing pass quick from one sentence to another; this sticks long upon it.
