Engravings on the Soul

2008-engraving

Hugh Binning, Works, p. 61:

As it is a pure fountain, in which a man may see his shadow distinctly, but a troubled fountain or mire in which he cannot behold himself; so it is pure worship, which receives and reflects the pure image of God, but impure and unclean worship, which cannot receive it and return it. I pray you, Christians, consider this, for it is such worshippers the Father seeks. And why seeks he such, but because in them he finds himself? So to speak, his own image and superscription is upon them; his mercy is engraven on their faith and confidence; his majesty and power is stamped on their humility and reverence; his goodness is to be read in the soul’s rejoicing, his greatness and justice in the soul’s trembling. Thus there ought to be some engravings on the soul answering the characters of his glorious name.
