The Godly Man’s Anchor

Faith is a cure-all – a remedy against all troubles. It is a godly man’s sheet anchor that he casts out into the sea of God’s mercy, and is kept from sinking in despair. “The Godly Man’s Picture” pg. 29

Affliction: The Test of the Christian

The test of a pilot is seen in a storm; so the test of a Christian is seen in affliction. That man has the right art of navigation who, when the boisterous winds blow from heaven, steers the ship of his soul wisely, and does not dash upon the rock of impatience. “The Godly Man’s Picture” pg. 124

Christians are as Stones in an Arch

As the stones in an arch help to strengthen one another, one Christian by imparting his experience, heats and quickens another. ‘Let us provoke one another to love, and to good works’ (Heb. 10:24). How does grace flourish by holy conference! A Christian by good discourse drops that oil upon another, which makes the lamp of his faith burn the brighter. “All Things for Good” pg. 22
