The word of God may well be compared to the ocean, for its vastness, its usefulness, and its wealth. No one can guess at the amount of wealth which the ocean contains; yet that would be much easier, than to guess at the amount of the unsearchable riches of Christ, contained in God's word. The design of every really good book, is to lead to the Bible; from thence its contents are extracted, and back to its source it leads. I have stood on the shore of the ocean of truth, and at times have been led into a few of its depths, where I have found treasure, which has enriched me; and as I think it is likely to enrich others, I have put a part of it into this little casket, and send it forth in hope that God will make it a blessing.
Christ is the great, the priceless pearl of Holy Scripture, and he that finds this pearl is rich indeed, though he part with all he has to obtain it. The promises and invitations of the Bible, are precious pearls too, they enrich and adorn the mind. Indeed every separate truth is a separate pearl, each one costly beyond description. I have endeavoured to string a fow together, and
now send them forth for the benefit of others.
