Baxter: spending time

Friday, October 16, 2015
    And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
    —Ephesians 4:30 (NIV)
    Spend [time] in nothing which you know must be repented of. Spend it in nothing which you dare not, or may not warrantably pray for a blessing on from God.
    ... Richard Baxter (1615-1691), The Practical Works of Richard Baxter, v. I, ed. William Orme, London: J. Duncan, 1830, p. 240 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 4:25-31; Ps. 4:4; 78:40; Matt. 5:22; Rom. 12:19-21; Jas. 1:19-20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, guide me away from sin.
