Religion a Personal Concern

Religion A Personal ConcernRobert Hawker wrote...Happy will to be if while you are thus waiting on God in the appointed ways of his grace, that very sweet scripture be fulfilled in your experience Therefore doth the Lord wait that he may be gracious unto you and therefore will he be exalted that he may have mercy upon you; for the Lord is a God of judgment blessed are all they that wait for him. (Isaiah 30:18)

And for you brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, as you cannot but be truly sensible, that your first call to God, was not the result of your own merit; so I trust you are equally convinced, that neither is your present continuance in grace, the effect of your own goodness. Had the Lord laid judgment to the line and righteousness to the plummet; or been extreme to mark what is done amiss, either before, or since, he hath manifested himself towards you, where would have been your portion?

You know full well, I am persuaded, the meaning of that blessed scripture, and can enter into an heart-felt enjoyment of it. Who hath saved us and called us with an holy calling, not according to our Works but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began. To you I would only beg to make this one observation. While you are ever ready to ascribe all to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made you accepted in the beloved; never lose sight of that comfortable assurance, that whom the Lord hath called, them he also justifieth, and whom he justifieth them he also glorified.
