But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.—Luke 22:32
Conversion brings strength, determination to defend the work of the Lord on earth and to expand it. This conversion comes when one receives the baptism of fire, the witness of the Holy Ghost.—S. Dilworth Young
