My aim and object!

(James Smith)

My object is to lead the mind . . .
  from self — to Jesus;
  from sin — to salvation;
  from the troubles of life — to the comforts of the gospel.

My aim is . . .
  to humble the sinner — and exalt the Savior;
  to strip the creature — and place the crown on the head of God's free grace!

I cannot ascribe too much to Jesus — or too little to man!

My object has always been to keep Christ constantly before the eye, and to enforce the precepts of the Divine Word on the Lord's people — by the consideration of what Christ is to them, and has done for them — so that the love of Christ may constrain them to every good word, and every good work.
