My Object and Aim

My object is to lead the mind . . . from SELF — to Jesus; from sin — to salvation; from the troubles of life — to the comforts of the gospel.
My aim is . . . to humble the sinner — and exalt the Savior; to strip the creature — and place the crown on the head of God's free grace!
I cannot ascribe too much to Jesus — or too little to man!

[James Smith]

Psalm 69:32 ... The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.

Proverbs 16:19 ... Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.

Matthew 18:4 ... Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

John 3:30 ...  He must increase, but I must decrease.
