We must also lessen the number of theological books, and choose the best; for it is not the number of books that make the learned man; nor much reading, but good books often read, however few, make a man learned in the Scriptures and pious. – Martin Luther

“Where God’s fountains of comfort flow.”

“You are today directed to God’s Word by God’s servant. You are told where God’s fountains of comfort flow. You are being pointed to the green pastures and the living waters of God’s Word. If you go to these fountains today, and find comfort and consolation, will you not go there after today also? Will you not more than ever before taste and see how good the Lord is? I hope you will do this. But if you will make the Word of God henceforth your daily study, it will bring you unspeakable blessings. It will increase and preserve your faith. It will give you hope. It will turn you from the allurements of the world to the one thing needful, to Christ and his righteousness. Is this not good? Is it not a mark of God’s love? With this before you, can you not find comfort in the abiding love of God? Can you not, though it be with streaming eyes, say: Nothing, I am certain, can turn God’s love away from me, and now I pray God, that this affliction may not turn my love away from him, but may lead me to cling to him with childlike confidence.

– From “The Abiding Love Of God As The True Source Of Comfort In Our Sorrows” By Rev. J. H. Schneider
