Quote of the Day #157 - Matthew Mead


A quote from Matthew Meade on the need to make your calling and election sure:
There are two questions of very great impor­tance which we should every one of us put to our­selves: “What am I?” and “Where am I?” Am I a child of God or not? Am I sincere in religion, or am I only a hypocrite under a profession? Am I yet in a natural state, or in a state of grace? Am I yet in the old root, in old Adam, or am I in the Root, Christ Jesus? Am I in the covenant of works that ministers only wrath and death, or am I in the covenant of grace that min­isters life and peace?

I press this upon you that are professors [those who call themselves Christians], because many rest in a notion of godli­ness and an outward show of religion, and yet remain in their natural condition.
~Matthew Meade (The Almost Christian)
