Wilhelmus à Brakel on Self-Denial

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 5:30 AM


“Self-Denial is a Christian virtue, granted by God to His children, whereby they, out of love for God’s will, neither give heed nor yield to their intellect, will, and inclinations insofar as they are in opposition to the will of God—and oppose and suppress them instead. They do so by a voluntary forsaking and rejection of all that pertains to their natural well-being, if God’s cause demands such from them. This [is] to the honor of God and the welfare of their neighbors.”
