“You have it all in one verse: 1 Peter 1:2 ‘Elect, according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience, and the sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ.’ So ver. 21, 22, ‘Who by him do believe in God that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory, that your faith and hope might be in God, seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit.’ In the Father we see elective love, in the Son there is full redemption, and by the Spirit effectual application. The Father appoints blessedness to us, the Son purchaseth it for us, and the Holy Ghost carrieth it on powerfully and invincibly.” –Thomas Manton “Works of” Vol. 16, p. 360
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.
