“When the Jews were full of fury against Stephen (Acts 7:56), ‘he saw the heavens opened;’ and so he fortified himself against the anger, and shower of stones from the people. …faith opens heaven to a believer, and brings him to the company of the blessed; and when the soul is taken up with the thoughts of another world, it can better digest trouble here. …when heaven is in the eye and heart of a believer, when it is preoccupied by his faith, sin has less power upon the heart.” –Thomas Manton “By Faith” (Banner of Truth) p. 13-14
Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
