Lamp, oil

"The devil dresses up countless swarms of goats as preachers, writers, and talkers, with the lamp and wick of correct doctrine. Not a drop of oil." -- John Kay, "Inspiration" in The Gospel Standard, 1838

Oh, that man would show forth his standing with God by his walk in life. The words and actions must reach that safe haven of a harmonious state, to which God and the brethren will proclaim, "Well done, thy good and faithful servant."

Just as the sapling without attention will perish, so does the affirmation of man without consecrated engagement of his total being towards the Saviour.
