You Must Seek Him

"It is essential that you seek Him as a real existence, and a true person, believing that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. It is all in vain to seek sacraments, you must seek Him: it is idle to go through forms of prayer, or to utter customary phrases of devotion, you must seek Him. Your salvation lies in God, sinner, and your seeking must be after God.

Do you understand this? It is not going to your priest or to your clergyman, or to your Bible or to your Prayer-book, or even to your knees in formal prayer; but you must draw near to God in Jesus Christ, and He must be found of you as a man finds a treasure and takes it to be his own."
