HAPPINESS FROM GOD

While all men seek after happiness, scarcely one in a hundred looks for it from God.
John Calvin

INVETERATE HOSTILITY

"When the Gospel is presented to the sinner, not only is his understanding completely ignorant of its glorious contents, but the will is utterly perverse against it. Not only is there no desire for Christ, but there is inveterate hostility against Him. Nothing but the almighty power of God can overcome the enmity of the carnal mind."

~ Arthur Pink, "Spiritual Union and Communion"

NO CAUSE TO BOAST

Christian, though you do not break forth into a flame of scandal, yet you have no cause to boast, for there is much sin raked up in the embers of your nature. You have the root of bitterness in you, and would bear as hellish fruit as any, if God did not either curb you by His power, or change you by His grace.
--Thomas Watson--

SECULAR AFFAIRS

A true saint intermeddles with secular affairs, more out of necessity than choice.

-Thomas Watson-

HE LOVES TO LOVE US

The great God not only loves His saints, but He loves to love them.

Jerry Bridges.

HE LOVES US

O saints, do but let your thoughts dwell upon the love of Christ, who passed by angels and thought of you; who was wounded that, out of his wounds, the balm of Gilead might come to heal you; who leaped into the sea of his Father's wrath, to save you from drowning in the lake of fire! Think of this unparalleled love, which sets the angels wondering—and see if it will not affect your hearts and cause tears to flow forth!

-Thomas Watson-

DO WE THINK OF GOD

  1. God thinks on us every morning; his mercies are "new every morning" (Lam. 3:23). He gives us night-mercies, he rocks us asleep every night: "So he gives his beloved sleep" (Psalm 127:2). And if we awaken, he gives "songs in the night" (Job 35:10). If God is thinking of us day and night, shall not we think of his Name? How can we forget a friend who is ever mindful of us? Though God is out of our sight, we are not out of his thoughts!
