The Christian’s Safety – Thomas Watson

The Christian’s Safety – Thomas Watson

The fear of God is a Christian’s safety. He is invulnerable; nothing can hurt him. Plunder him of his money, he carries a treasure about him of which he cannot be robbed (Isa. 33:6). Cast him into prison his conscience is free; kill his body, it shall rise again. He who has on this breastplate of God’s fear may be shot at, but can never be shot through.

– Thomas Watson –
from The Great Gain of Godliness, 1682
