Peace Through His Blood

It concerns us much to see whether we be in peace or trouble: if in trouble, you see the cure; if in peace, the next question is, is it God’s peace? That is had by the blood of Christ, the merit of which we must depend upon, and devote ourselves to God, break off our old league with sin, and bind ourselves with a bond to live unto God, to be the Lord’s for evermore. When this peace is made, be very tender of it, that no breach fall out between you and God: Ps. Ixxxv. 8, ‘He will speak peace to his people, and to his saints: but let not them turn again to folly.’

Thomas Manton, Volume 1
