Words of Wisdom - Past and Present
Author: Watson, Thomas
Three men, asking one another what made them leave sin: one says, I think of the joys of heaven; another, I think of the torments of hell; but the third, I think of the love of God, and that makes me forsake it. How shall I offend the God of love? [TDOR]
Author: Bunyan, John
Though God cannot, and will not, dissolve the relationship which the Spirit of adoption has made between the Father and the sons, for any sin that such do commit: yet he can, and often does, take away from them the comfort of their adoption, not suffering children, while sinning, to have the sweet and comfortable sense thereof on their hearts. [TFOG]

To doubt the genuiness of our faith because we have not full assurance is not wise. He to whom Christ is precious, to whom the word of God is sweeter than honey, to whom sin is odious, to whom secret devotion is a delight, who makes it the business of his life to honour his Master, and who regards the world as a broken idol, has the witness that he is passed from death unto life. [ROOS]
