Teaching The Truth

Feb 24, 2017

"There is not a want of our nature - of our bodies or our souls; a want pertaining to this life or the life to come - to ourselves, to our families, to our friends, to the church, or to our country - which God is not able to meet; and there is not a real necessity in any of these respects which He is not willing to meet. Why, then, should His people ever turn for happiness to the 'weak and beggarly elements of the world,' as if God could not satisfy them? Why should they seek for happiness in vain amusements, or in sensual pleasures, as if God could not, or would not, supply the real needs of their souls?" (Barnes' Notes)
