Thomas Watson on Affliction

Posted by Tony Konvalin | | Posted On Friday, January 29, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"To know that nothing hurts the godly, is a matter of comfort; but to be assured that all things which fall out shall co-operate for their good, that their crosses shall be turned into blessings, that showers of affliction water the withering root of their grace and make it flourish more; this may fill their hearts with joy till they run over." 
Thomas Watson


Arthur W. Pink on Faith

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, January 28, 2010 at 8:14 AM

"Faith endures as seeing Him who is invisible (Heb. 11:27); endures the disappointments, the hardships, and the heart-aches of life, by recognizing that all comes from the hand of Him who is too wise to err and too loving to be unkind. But so long as we are occupied with any other object than God Himself, there will be neither rest for the heart nor peace for the mind. But when we receive all that enters our lives as from His hand, then, no matter what may be our circumstances or surroundings—whether in a hovel or prison-dungeon, or at a martyr's stake—we shall be enabled to say, " The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places" (Ps. 16:6). But that is the language of faith, not of sight nor of sense."
Arthur W. Pink

"In one word, God is the author of all good, by his grace working it; the permitter of all evil, by his patience enduring it; the orderer and disposer of both, by his mercy rewarding the one, by his justice revenging the other, and by his wisdom directing both to the ends of his eternal glory."
Jeremiah Burroughs

Thomas Brooks on Grace

"Grace and glory differ very little; the one is the seed, the other is the flower; grace is glory militant, glory is grace triumphant."
Thomas Brooks

Charles Spurgeon on Death

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, January 22, 2010 at 8:00 AM

"There is an essential difference between the decease of the godly and the death of the ungodly. Death comes to the ungodly man as a penal infliction, but to the righteous as a summons to his Father's palace. To the sinner it is an execution, to the saint an undressing from his sins and infirmities. Death to the wicked is the King of terrors. Death to the saint is the end of terrors, the commencement of glory."
Charles Spurgeon

Cotton Mather on Imitation

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: | Posted On Monday, January 11, 2010 at 4:00 AM

"Examples do strangely charm us into imitation. When holiness is pressed upon us we are prone to think that it is a doctrine calculated for angels and spirits whose dwelling is not with flesh. But when we read the lives of them that excelled in holiness, though they were persons of like passions with ourselves, the conviction is wonderful and powerful."
Cotton Mather

Joseph Alleine on Difference Between Conviction and Conversion

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Wednesday, January 6, 2010 at 4:00 AM

"It is one thing to have sin alarmed only by convictions, and another to have it crucified by converting grace. Many, because they have been troubled in conscience for their sins, think well of their case, miserably mistaking conviction for conversion."
Joseph Alleine
(1634-1668)

William Gurnall on Fear
