Our great need is not ardour to save man but courage to face God – courage to face God with our soul as it is, and with our Saviour as He is; to face God always thus, and so to win the power which saves and services man more than any other power can. We can never fully say “My brother!” till we have heartily said “My God!”, and we can never heartily say “My God!” till we have humbly said “My Guilt!” That is the root of moral reality, of personal religion.
