Furthering Godliness

 

    "It was the practice of our Saviour, who left us a blessed pattern therein, to be always furthering godliness.  When bread was mentioned to Him, upon it He dissuaded His disciples from the leaven of the pharisees, Matt. 16:5-6.  When water was denied Him by the Samaritan woman, He forgets His thirst, and seeks to draw her to the well-spring of happiness, John 4:10....  When people came to Him for bodily cures, how constantly doth He mind the safety of their souls:  'Thou art made whole, go sin no more,' or, 'Thy sins are forgiven thee.' He went about doing good; in the day-time working miracles and preaching, in the night-time he often gave himself to meditation and prayer."

 

 -- George Swinnock (1627-1673)
