How then [are we] to have our faith increased? Only by thinking of all that Jesus is and all He is for us… He Himself as revealed in the Word to be subject of our thoughts. Not a striving to have faith, but a looking off to the Faithful One seems all we need; resting in the Loved One entirely, for time and for eternity.
-- John McCarthy, as quoted in Hudson Taylor's
Spiritual Secret by Dr. and Mrs. Howard Taylor
