Oh come and seek his face, draw near to him if you have any inclinations, come if you have any love for him. Why withhold such splendid opportunities to be drenched in the waves of his love - I suppose it is because you do not want him. Be fools no longer and come through his gate, come willingly and boldly for he has called for you. His love is endless, his grace is matchless. Oh poor sinner, you are a child of God, a brother to your saviour; settle with your soul that it is the best of duty and delight to know him, no other thing is better than to know him.

Call for his presence, bow your head in prayer, meditate on his precepts and the loveliness of his character.
