"Young Christians, let me say something to you. Do you want to get to know the Shepherd better? He is here, in this Book (i.e. the Bible - mv). If you want to feed on him, do it from his Word. Why do young Chritians find the Christian way difficult? Why do they get cold and wander back into the world? Why do they become afraid and not make a strong and uncompromising stand for Christ? Nearly always because they are neglecting God's Word."
The Lord Our Shepherd, 88.
