O the depth of the
riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his
judgments and his ways past finding out. Rom. 11:33
In the Scriptures thousands of gems of
truth lie hidden from the surface seeker. The mine of truth is never exhausted.
The more you search the Scriptures with humble hearts, the greater will be your
interest, and the more you will feel like exclaiming with Paul: "O the
depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! . . ."
Every day you should learn something new
from the Scriptures. Search them as for hid treasures, for they contain the words
of eternal life. Pray for wisdom and understanding to comprehend these holy
writings. If you would do this, you would find new glories in the Word of God;
you would feel that you had received new and precious light on subjects
connected with the truth, and the Scriptures would be constantly receiving a
new value in your estimation.
The great truths necessary for salvation
are made as clear as noonday. . . . A single text has proved in the past, and
will prove in the future, to be a savor of life unto life to many a soul. As
men diligently search, the Bible opens new treasures of truth, which are as
bright jewels to the mind.
You must dig deep in the mine of truth if
you would find its richest treasures. Comparing scripture with scripture, you
may find the true meaning of the text; but if you do not make the sacred
teachings of God's Word the rule and guide of your life, the truth will be
nothing to you. . . . If any part of God's Word condemns any habit you have
cherished, any feeling you have indulged, any spirit you have manifested, turn
not from the Word of God; but turn away from the evil of your doings, and let
Jesus cleanse and sanctify your heart.
