“One thing is needful; an humble, dependent spirit, to renounce our own wills, and give up ourselves to His disposal without reserve.
This is the path of peace; and it is the path of safety; for He has said, the meek He will teach His way, and those who yield up themselves to Him He will guide with His eye.
I hope you will fight and pray against every rising of a murmuring spirit, and be thankful for the great things which He has already done for you.
It is good to be humbled for sin, but not to be discouraged: for though we are poor creatures, Jesus is a complete Saviour and we bring more honour to God by believing in His name and trusting His word of promise, than we could do by a thousand outward works.”
John Newton, One Thing Needed
