Sacred Scripture Meditation

If a student has labored merely to equip his mind with a store of facts, and has neglected the high and holy means of sacred meditation, he will look in vain for progress in his labors, for any real or practical value to the church at large-or for his own eternal security. The Word is for the nourishment of the soul. Both the light of our salvation and the spiritual gifts which follow salvation are nourished by it. The first is for our unutterable comfort, the latter for our ministry  to others.
