Fuller: God's work, God's way
Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God.
—2 Corinthians 4:1-2 (ESV)
God’s own work must be done by God’s own ways. Otherwise, we can take no comfort in obtaining the end, if we cannot justify the means used thereunto.
... Thomas Fuller (1608-1661), The Cause and Cure of a Wounded Conscience , “Historical Applications”, VIII (see the book)

Lord, I will follow Your ways to arrive at Your kingdom.
