Jeremiah Burroughs Asserts that the Saint Who Has a Little, Has Everything in Knowing Jesus

August 16, 2015

 

 

"What they have it is sanctified to them for good; other men have what they enjoy in-way of common providence, but the saints in a special way; others have, what they have and there is all, they have meat, and drink, and houses, and clothes, and money, and that is all. But a gracious heart finds contentment in this, I have it, and I have sanctified use of it too; I find God going along with what I have to draw my heart nearer to him, and sanctify my hear to him: If I find my heart drawn nearer to God by what I enjoy; it is more a great deal than if I have it without any sanctifying my heart by it; there is a secret dew that goes along with it, there is the dew of Gods love in it, and the dew of sanctification."
