From A Letter Of Robert Murray McCheyne
"I am deepened in my conviction, that if we are to be instruments in such a work [revival], we must be purified from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit. O, cry for personal holiness, constant nearness to God, by the Blood of the Lamb. Bask in His beams – lie back in the arms of love – be filled with His Spirit – or all success in the ministry will only be to your own everlasting confusion.
"Do not think any sin trivial; remember it will have everlasting consequences. O to have Brainerd’s heart for perfect holiness--to be holy as God is holy – pure as Christ is pure – perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect...How much more useful might we be, if we were only more free from pride, self-conceit, personal vanity, or some secret sin that our heart knows. O! hateful sins, that destroy our peace, and ruin our souls."
