Fountain of All Mercy

“In the works of salvaiton he is the first and the last, Heb. 12:2. He is the ‘author of our faith,’ and so the first, and ‘the finisher’ and so the last. Thus he is at death too, when we ‘receive the end of our faith, the salvation of our souls,’ 1 Pet. 1:9. And after tht, he is thus to us at the day of judgment: 2 Tim 1:18, ‘The Lord grant he may find mercy at that day.’ It is then we have need of mercy, and he is the giver of it. And as at the first and last, so all along between, he is thus the fountain of all mercy and grace to us.” –Thomas Goodwin “Works of…” Vol 8, p. 39

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.
