"Christian, your life is a
book; it may be a volume of larger or smaller size. Conversion is but
the title-page or the preface. The book itself remains to be written;
and your years and weeks and days are its chapters and pages and lines.
It is a book written for eternity; see that it be written well. It is
a book for the inspection of enemies as well as friends; be careful
of every word. It is a book written under the eye of God; let it be
done reverently; without levity, yet without constraint or terror."
