Though the Devil Cannot Destroy Us, He Will Disturb Us

Through the fury of temptation, though the devil cannot destroy us, he will disturb us. He disputes against our adoption; he would make us question the work of grace in our hearts, and so disturb the waters of our peace. He is like a subtle cheater, who, if he cannot make a man’s title to his land void, yet will put him to many troublesome suits in law. If Satan cannot make us ungodly, he will make us unquiet. Violent winds make the sea rough and stormy; so the winds of temptation blowing disturb peace of spirit, and put the soul into a commotion. “A Body of Divinity” pgs. 263-4
