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]."
"God has other ways of expressing His love to
His people than by the smiles of His providence
"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.' "
"His love to you passeth all creature-love, so let
yours to Him be a matchless love."
