The pleasures of religion – Matthew Henry

by | November 1, 2021

The pleasures of religion will abide; they wither not in winter, nor tarnish with time, nor doth age wrinkle their beauty; frosts nip them not, nor do storms blast them; they continue through the greatest opposition of events, and despise that time and change, which happens to all things under the sun’ (Ecl 9:1).  Believers, when they are sorrowful, they are but as sorrowful, for they are “always rejoicing” (2 Cor 6:10) and “Thanks be to God who always causes us to triumph” (2 Cor 2:14).

– Matthew Henry –
from The Pleasantness of a Religious Life, 1714
