Pearl of Price

“The world suggests earthly enjoyments, present advantages. …then faith comes with the treasures of the covenant. …outward conveniences are put into one scale, faith puts your hopes into the other; one is present, the other is absent. …if there be faith, it will work thus, by presenting your hopes, and casting the balance by an exceeding weight of glory. We can lose nothing, saith faith, but we shall have better in heaven; we can gain nothing, but Christ will be more advantage to us. Upon this a believer sells all to purchase the pearl of price.” –Thomas Manton “By Faith” (Banner of Truth) p. 18

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

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.
