A Double Comfort in Crosses
Here is double comfort then in our crosses.
1. On our part. That we have received of God's Grace which is more comfortable than the cross discomfortable, and that therefore we shall not be tempted above our strength.
2. On God's part. That He will be glorified in us against Satan, I Corinthians 10:10. The credit of our combating redounds to God, who, if He had not well taught us in the Fencing-school, would never have brought us into the field, lest we should shame him.
