 A man too big for temptations to conquer! -brooks


[b]A man too big for temptations to conquer![/b]

(Thomas Brooks, "The Hypocrite Detected")

Communion with God is . . .
the life of your graces,
the sweetener of all ordinances, providences and mercies,
the strengthener of your hearts and hands,
the soul of your comforts, and
the crown of your souls.

Communion with God makes the bitter things
sweet; and massive things light.

Nothing like communion with God to fence you
against temptations, to sweeten all afflictions,
and to make you cleave to God in the face of
all troubles and oppositions.

A man high in communion with God, is a man too
big for temptations to conquer, or troubles to
overcome. Souls that have no communion, or but
little communion with God--they are usually as
soon conquered as tempted, as soon vanquished
as assaulted.

Wow, there is so much truth in that poem! How can one give in to temptation when they have met with God! Thanks for sharing this.

Oh! not to be a heavenly hyprocrite! To be much with God is the secret of the Christian life.
