Taking Hold of Christ's Hand: Advice from Jonathan Edwards

In all your course, walk with God,
and follow Christ, 
as a little, poor, helpless child, 
taking hold of Christ's hand,
keeping your eye on the marks of the wounds
in his hands and side,
whence came the blood 
that cleanses you from sin,
and hiding your nakedness under
the skirt of the white shining robes
of his righteousness.

--Jonathan Edwards
(Hickman edition, vol. 1, p. liv)
