The Disciple,--Master, it is clear to almost everyone that to disobey God and to cease to worship Him is sin, and the deadly result is seen in the present state of the world.

Sin is to cast aside the will of God and to live according to one's own will, deserting that which is true and lawful in order to satisfy one's own

Gerhard Ter Steegen Rev. xxi. 5 Wanderer, rest thy weary feet; Shapes and sounds forgotten now-- Close thine eyes in stillness sweet, With thy God alone art thou. In the deeps of silence rest, Let Him work His high behest.

In the silence of that dawn God shall speak His words of grace, Light that round thy waking
