Thomas Brooks

05/02/2012

Born in 1608, Brooks was ordained to ministry in 1640, having studied at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He served the Lord in London, and preached before the House of Commons. While he was ejected from his pulpit in 1662, he continued to preach and write.

“Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst; he promises honour, and pays with disgrace; he promises pleasure, and pays with pain; he promises profit, and pays with loss; he promises life, and pays with death. But God pays as he promises; all his payments are made in pure gold.”;

————————————————————————————————–

Here God gives his people some taste, that they may not faint; and he gives them but a taste, that they may long to be at home, that they may keep humble, that they may sit loose from things below, that they may not break and despise bruised reeds, and that heaven may be more sweet to them at last.”;
