"A fourth work of God in the converting of a sinner, is this, the casting of the soul upon Jesus Christ for all it's good: I see Jesus Christ in the Gospel the Fountain of all good, and God out of free grace tendering him to me for life, and for salvation, and now my soul casts itself, rolls itself upon the infinite grace of God in Christ for all good; now hast thou done so? Hath God converted thee, and drawn thee to his Son to cast thy soul upon Him for all thy good, and yet thou discontented for the want of some little matter in a creature-comfort?"
