Jeremiah Burroughs On the Essential Need to Forsake Our Love of the World and Hold Fast to Christ

September 3, 2015

 "The soul before sought after this, and the other thing, but now faith the soul, I see really that it is not necessary that I should be rich, but it is necessary that I should make up my peace with God; it is not necessary that I should live a pleasurable life in this world, but it is absolutely necessary that I should have pardon of my sin, it is not necessary that I should have honor and preferment, but it is necessary that I should have God to be my portion, and have my part in Jesus Christ; it is necessary that my soul should be saved in the day of Jesus Christ; the other things are pretty fine things indeed, and I should be glad if God would give them me, a fine habitation, and comings in, and clothes, and promotion for my wife and children, these are comfortable things, but these are not the necessary things, I may have these, and yet perish forever, but the other is absolutely necessary; no matter though I be poor, so be it I may have that is absolutely necessary; thus Christ instructs the soul."
