"Gaze no longer upon your empty bottle..."

John Newton said:
We need not dig in the earth nor climb in the skies nor cross the seas: our remedy is near (Rom. 10:6-8).... Come, gaze no longer upon your empty bottle but look to the fountain, the river, the ocean of all grace.... When Christ is out of sight we are deaf to all the calls, invitations and promises of the Scripture.
Quoted in Michael Horton's article, Grace, How Strange to Sound, in Modern Reformation.
