 (Heb.11:4)
 
Richard BaxterDied8th December 1691
 
 The Lord is not drowning His sheep when He washes them norkilling them when He is shearing them.
 
If 
they can see that you love them, you can say anything to them.
 
 
Y
ou may know God, but not comprehend Him.
 
Lord, whatever you want, wherever you want it, and whenever you want it, that's what
I
want.
 
 
 Take ten looks at Christ
or each one you take at sel
.
 
A
nd the longer you delay (to repent) the more your sin getsstrength and rooting.
If 
you cannot bend a twig, how will you beable to bend it when it is a tree?
 
 
 Think what the soul o
man is made
or, and should be used to,even to love, obey, and glori
 y our Maker; and then you will seewhat sin is, which disables and perverts it.
 
 
I
have pain; but
I
have peace.
 
 
U
se sin as it will use you; spare it not,
or it will not spare you; itis your murderer, and the murderer o
the world: use it,there
ore, as a murderer should be used. Kill it be
ore it kills you.
Y
ou love not death; love not the cause o
death.
 
 
I
n necessary things, unity;
 
in doubt
ul things, liberty;
 
in all things, charity.
 
 
P
eople must either be changed or be damned.
 
N
aturally, men are prone to spin themselves a web o
opinionsout o
their own brain, and to have a religion that may be calledtheir own. They are
ar readier to make themselves a
aith, thanto receive that which God hath
ormed to their hands; are
arreadier to receive a doctrine that tends to their carnalcommodity, or honor, or delight, than one that tends to sel
f-
denial.
 
 
 The work may be God·s, and yet, because o
pride, we may do it,not
or God but
or ourselves.
 
He that lives in the kingdom o
sense, shall die in the kingdom o
 sorrow.
 
 The more per
ect the sight is the more delight
ul the beauti
ulobject. The more per
ect the appetite, the sweeter the
ood. Themore musical the ear, the more pleasant the melody. The moreper
ect the soul, the more joyous the joys o
heaven and the moreglorious that glory.
 
 This li
e was not intended to be the place o
our per
ection, butthe preparation
or it.
 
 
 
 
I
t is a contradiction to be a true Christian and not humble.
 
 
God takes men's hearty desires and will, instead o
the deed,where they have not power to
ul
ill it; but he never took the baredeed instead o
the will.
 
A
hard heart now makes heaven and hell seem but tri
les. Wehave showed them everlasting glory and misery, and they are asmen asleep; our words are as stones cast against a wall, which
ly back in our
aces. We talk o
terrible things, but it is to deadmen; we search the wounds, but they never
eel it; we speak torocks rather than to men; the earth will as soon tremble as they.
 
I
s it a small thing in your eyes to be loved by God
-
to be the son,the spouse, the love, the delight o
the King o
glory? Christian,believe this, and think about it: you will be eternally embraced inthe arms o
the love which was
rom everlasting, and will extendto everlasting
-
o
the love which brought the Son o
God's love
rom heaven to earth,
rom earth to the cross,
rom the cross tothe grave,
rom the grave to glory.

Christ leads me through no darker rooms than He went throughbe
ore.
 
 
Know and consider the wonder
ul love and mercy o
God, andthink what he has done
or you; and you will hate sin, and beashamed o
it.
 
 
Labour to know God, and to be a
ff 
ected with his attributes, andalways to live as in his sight.
