Notable Quote: John Brown of Wamphray

John Brown of Wamphray (1610-1679) on finding our life in Christ:

Live up then to the gospel, and so be sure of it, and be safe in it. I mean, let Christ live in thee as they all, and cast all thy are and cumber on him; draw all they necessities out of him; and undertake all they duties in him; be strong in him, and in the power of his might; let him be they counselor, condutor, leader, teacer, captain, commander, light life, strength, and all so shall thou stand and have ause to glory, even in thine infirmities, for thou shalt find the power of Christ resting upon thee, and thou shalt have cause to say, therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reporaches, in necessities, in persecution, in distresses for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

Christ: the Way, the Truth, and the Life
