“Oh! the happiness of those souls that have broken the fetters of self-love, and disentangled their affections from every narrow and peculiar good, whose understandings are enlightened by the Holy Spirit, and their wills enlarged to the extent of thine, who love thee above all things, and all mankind for thy sake!
“Oh! teach me to do thy will, for thou are my God, thy Spirit is good, lead me unto the land of uprightness. Quicken me, O Lord, for thy name’s sake, and perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever, forsake not the works of thine own hands.”
~ Henry Scougal, The Life of God in the Soul of Man, pg. 72
George Whitefield, famous preacher in the first Great Awakening, said this about Scougal’s book: “I never knew what true religion was till God sent me this excellent treatise.”
