George Downame on the Great Physician

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, October 8, 2014 at 6:18 AM

“Our Physician makes these outward blisters in our bodies, to draw out the poisonous corruption that is in our souls: and therefore let us endure what He imposes with patience, and never murmur against Him for effecting His cure; knowing that it is but childish folly to abhor the medicine more than the disease, and that we count them madmen who rage against the physician who intends their recovery.

Let us rather rejoice that the Lord is content to minister to us, because seeing He undertakes to cure us by these medicines, it is a sign that we are not past recovery.  For when in our diseases our estate is desperate, He leaves us to our own appetite, to have what our hearts can desire, and to take our fill of the pleasures of sin.”
