Wesley: pray and read

Saturday, July 18, 2015
    Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
    —1 Peter 2:2-3 (NIV)
    Constantly add the private means of grace, particularly prayer and reading. Most of you have been greatly wanting in this; and, without this, you can never grow in grace. You may as well expect a child to grow without food, as a soul without private prayer; and reading is an excellent help to this. I advise you to read, in particular, constantly and carefully, the New Testament.
    ... John Wesley (1703-1791), “To the Societies at Bristol”, The Letters of the Rev. John Wesley, v. IV, The Epworth Press, 1931, p. 272 (see the book)
    See also 1 Pet. 2:2-3; Ps. 1:2; 84:5-7; 119:15,48; Phil. 1:4-6,9-11; Col. 1:10-11; Heb. 6:1-3; 2 Pet. 3:18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your word leads me to You.
