His Banqueting Table....


I wanted to quickly share a link for an ebook I've been reading and enjoying this afternoon, His Banqueting Table.  Go here for a free download. The book is made up entirely of Puritan quotes by men such as John Own, John Flavel, William Gurnell, Thomas Brooks, Thomas Watson, Charles Spurgeon, and many more Puritans. Below I shared a couple quotes I liked.

"How unkind and unthankful, upon every dark
and black trial and temptation, to think He would
desert us, whose love was such as He would not
do it when He Himself was to be deserted and
made a curse [for us upon the cross]."
John Owen

"God has other ways of expressing His love to
His people than by the smiles of His providence
upon them."
John Flavel

"If ever you hope to enjoy sweet repose and rest
of a Christian in evil times, you must resolve
whatever your eyes do see, or your senses report,
to hold fast this as a most sure conclusion: God is
faithful and His Word is sure, and that although
'clouds and darkness be round about Him yet
righteousness and judgment are the habitation of
His throne.' "
John Flavel

"His love to you passeth all creature-love, so let
yours to Him be a matchless love."
John Flavel

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
