The Preciousness Of Trial

"The Lord tries our faith to test its genuineness, to promote its purity, to invigorate its power-thus to bring us into a more intimate acquaintance with Himself. How seldom would the Lord see our uplifted face, or our outstretched hands, or hear the plaint accents of our voice, did He permit this grace to lie sluggish and stagnant in the soul.  But it is "living water" which Christ has deposited within the regenerate, and trial is needed to keep it pure, sparkling, and ascending."

Octavius Winslow
