Jottings – There Is a Great Difference Between Being Occupied With What You Are Saved From And What You Are Saved To

“John


 

There is a great difference between being occupied with what you are saved from, and what you are saved to. If you are occupied with the first, it is only relief that is before you; if with the second, you are occupied with the hope of the gospel. Our blessed Lord was not satisfied with getting us out of misery, but He obtained the Father’s house for us.
