Quote for Today

“The regenerate man’s desires are rectified; they are set on God himself, and the things above… Before, he saw no beauty in Christ, for which he was to be desired; but now he is all he desires, he is altogether lovely… regenerating grace sets the affections so firmly on God, that the man is disposed, at God’s command, to quit his hold of every thing else, in order to keep his hold of Christ… If the stream of our affections were never thus turned, we are, doubtless, going down the stream into the pit”
Thomas Boston

“By obedience a man is guarded against pride. Prayer is given for the sake of obedience. The grace of the Holy Spirit is also given for obedience. This is why obedience is higher than prayer and fasting.”

Quote for Today

“Faith does not grasp a doctrine, but a heart. The trust which Christ requires is the bond that unites souls with Him; and the very life of it is entire committal of myself to Him in all my relations and for all my needs, and absolute utter confidence in Him as all sufficient for everything that I can require”
– Alexander MacLaren

A Word in Season – Matthew Henry

Quote for Today

“Cast not away your confidence because God defers his performances. That which does not come in your time, will be hastened in his time, which is always the more convenient season. God will work when he pleases, how he pleases, and by what means he pleases. He is not bound to keep our time, but he will perform his work, honour our faith, and reward them that diligently seek him”
– Matthew Henry
