When the world smiles upon us, and we have got a warm nest, how do we prophesy of rest and peace in those acquisitions, thinking with good Baruch, great things for ourselves, but Providence by a particular or general calamity overturns our plans (Jer. 45:4,5), and all this to turn our hearts from the creature to God.More John Flavel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Observed duties maintain our credit; but secret duties maintain our life.More John Flavel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The more afflictions you have been under, the more assistance you have had for this life of holiness.More John Flavel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Christian! thou knowest thou carriest gunpowder about thee. Desire them that carry fire to keep at a distance. It is a dangerous crisis when a proud heart meets with flattering lips.More John Flavel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What is a child, but a piece of the parent enrapt up in another skin? And yet our dearest children are but as strangers to us, in comparison of the unspeakable dearness that was between the Father and Christ. Now, that he should ever be content to part with a Son, and such an only One, is such a manifestation of love, as will be admired to all eternity.More John Flavel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
