How to View the Trials of Life

“Indeed, were it God’s intent to satisfy His justice by the evils which He brings upon me, I might then tremble with horror and astonishment, and account every, the slightest suffering, a presage and pledge, of far greater and eternal to come; but if I have an interest in the righteousness of Christ, justice is already satisfied, and the curse removed; and all the sorrows and afflictions which I suffer, are but the corrections of a gracious Father, not the revenge of an angry God”.

Ibid, p.60

  1. Jim, what a great quote. God not giving us over to our sins, but by His grace, His rod of chastisement drives us to Christ. As Paul says: “For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice”. Yet by His grace, we are cloaked in Christ’s righteousness. Soli Deo Gloria.

    May He come quickly.

    • Amen!
