Warmed by the Word
Psalm 119: 93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.
Leave not off reading the Bible till you find your hearts warmed. Read the word, not only as a history, but labour to be affected with it. Let it not only inform you, but inflame you. "Is not my word like a fire? saith the Lord" [Jeremiah 23:29]. Go not from the word till you can say as those disciples, "Did not our hearts burn within us?" [Luke 24:32]. — Thomas Watson
