Has the Gospel Christianized your home? By Octavius Winslow

It is impossible to love Jesus ardently, to behold Him spiritually, and to study Him closely, and not be molded, in some degree, into His lovely likeness! Has the Gospel of Jesus made your temper milder, your heart purer, your life holier? Has it softened your churlishness, subdued your moroseness, sweetened your disposition, rendering you more attractable, admired, and loved? Has it converted your penuriousness into liberality, your pride into humility, your selfishness into generosity, your love of ease and sloth into active service for the Lord? Has the Gospel Christianized your home? O remember that the Gospel of Jesus has done but little for us if it has not done this! by Octavius Winslow
