Generic Clouds ReferenceW


…no man can truly have the Lord for his God, except he have chosen him for his portion; and no man can truly choose the Lord for his portion, before he truly know him; and he that does truly know God, does truly believe both his threatenings and his promises; and he that does truly believe the Lord’s threatenings, must needs fear and tremble at them; and he that does believe the Lord’s promises, must needs truly love him, for faith always produces and brings forth love; and whosoever does truly love God, must needs desire near communion with him; yea, and rejoice in communion with him; yea, and fear to offend him; yea, and sorrow for offending him; yea, and be zealous for his glory.

Edward Fisher, The Marrow of Modern Divinity (Bellingham, WA: Logos Bible Software, 2010), 275–276.
