Baxter: the same message

Friday, June 14, 2013
    Commemoration of Richard Baxter, Priest, Hymnographer, Teacher, 1691
    So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have.
    —2 Peter 1:12 (NIV)
    I like to hear a man dwell much on the same essentials of Christianity. For we have but one God, and one Christ, and one faith to preach; and I will not preach another Gospel to please men with variety, as if our Savior and our Gospel were grown stale.
    ... Richard Baxter (1615-1691), A Treatise of Conversion, London: Nevill Simmons, 1658, p. 23 (see the book)
    See also 2 Pet. 1:12-15; Phil. 3:1; Eph. 4:4-6; 2 Tim. 1:13; 4:3; Tit. 1:9; Heb. 4:14; 2 Pet. 3:1; Jude 1:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have saved Your lost sheep.
