A Shaking and Trembling Foundation

29 Oct

“Those commonly prove the most stable and stayed Christians, that have been most harassed by legal terrors before they enjoy a sense of comfort; the structure of grace in the heart is quite contrary to other buildings; it stands firmest when it is laid upon a shaking and trembling foundation. It is a seed that never thrives so well as where the heart is most broken up, and where the wrath of God hath made long and deep furrows in it.”

Ezekiel Hopkins
