Jottings – The Spring of True Christianity
Based on Jonathan & David in 1 Samuel 18:1-4:
“Reader, let us remember that love to Jesus is the spring of true Christianity. Love to Jesus makes us strip ourselves, and, we may say, that to strip self to honor Jesus is the fairest fruit of the work of God in the soul.”
