The Reformed Pastor

The power of a divine life, reigning within you, can never dispose you to neglect your studies, or to use with a slack hand the means you possess for making your education for the ministry thorough and complete. It is not when led by the Spirit of God, that the theological student is found out of place and out of time, as it respects the literary engagements to which he is bound in an institution like ours; slighting his lessons, absenting himself from recitations, despising rules, careless of punctuality, wasting his time with unprofitable visits, and sacrificing his intellectual strength to the vain spirit of the world. … [Your studies] are entitled to more than all the zeal they have yet received at your hands.
