 octavius winslow quote

G'day Friends

I have recently been blessed by some writtings of men from years gone by. Today I found some writtings from Octavius Winslow, wow , a treasure of encouragement and grace.

Octavius Winslow:

The Lord permits soul-trouble that we may be set upon seeking Him. You are anxious about an assured interest in Christ; you are filled with fear and alarm lest this new discovery you have made of indwelling sin should prove from past experience a deception, and your present hope a lie. You are perhaps troubled with vain, sinful, blasphemous thoughts, and you know not how to reconcile their existence and assault with the divine nature in your soul and the love of God in your heart.

But this experience have all the saints; all have trodden this path to glory. No saint has arrived there without a fearful struggle with sin; no believer has reached the realms of bliss without many a shaft from the adversary, and with the scar of many a wound, which shall go with him to glory to testify to the zeal, faithfulness, and love with which he fought the battles of his Lord. All such shall find Jesus a merciful and faithful High Priest, succouring those who are assailed, delivering the godly out of temptation, and quieting the fears of His saints with the assured truth that the spiritual warfare they discover within is the result of two opposite principles- sin and grace; of two diverse natures- that of the first and that of the Second Adam.

Amen. Very true and great article. May we see our current tribulations a place to set our gaze on Christ whose precious blood is a remedy for all.
