Judas Called Christ Lord, Lord

Judas called Christ Lord, Lord; and yet betrayed him, and has gone to his place. Ah! how many Judases have we in these days, that kiss Christ, and yet betray Christ; that in their words profess him—but in their works deny him; that bow their knee to him, and yet in their hearts despise him; that call him Jesus, and yet will not obey him for their Lord. ~ Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices by Thomas Brooks

The Doing Man is the Happiest Man

Know that it is not the knowing, nor the talking, nor the reading man—but the doing man, that at last will be found the happiest man. “If you know these things, blessed and happy are you if you DO them.” (John 13:17) ~ Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices by Thomas Brooks

The Necessity of Serious Meditation on Heavenly Truths

Remember, it is not hasty reading—but serious meditating upon holy and heavenly truths, that make them prove sweet and profitable to the soul. It is not the bee’s touching of the flower, which gathers honey—but her abiding for a time upon the flower, which draws out the sweet. It is not he who reads most—but he who meditates most, who will prove the choicest, sweetest, wisest and strongest Christian. ~ Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices by Thomas Brooks
