The Spirit and the Heart

Unless there be in our hearts a secret conviction by the Spirit of God, the gospel in itself is a dead letter, and worketh not in us the light and righteousness of God…for…the Scriptures…are written within and without…and unless there be a light shining within our hearts, unfolding the leaves and interpreting the mysterious sense of the Spirit, convincing our consciences and preaching to our hearts, to look for Christ in the leaves of the gospel is to look for the living among the dead.
--Jeremy Taylor (1613-1667), Anglican Bishop and Divine
