2 Samuel 1
Preface - Paul teacheth that none can own Christ but by the Holy Ghost; whose gifts are diverse, and dealt out to different persons to profit withal. As many members make up one natural body, so Christians in general form one mystical body: and as every member is equally a part of the natural body, and hath a necessary function allotted it; so is it with Christ's body, the church; to the individual members of which God hath assigned different gifts and offices for the general good.

Q70 - What is repentance unto life?
A - Repentance unto life is a saving grace, whereby a sinner, out of a true sense of his sin, and apprehension of the mercy of God in Christ, does with grief and hatred of his sin, turn from it unto God, with full purpose to strive after new obedience.

Enough in Christ
Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. - 2 Timothy 2 v 1
There is enough in Christ to supply the need of all His people. An old minister says, A child can carry little water from the sea in its two hands, and so it is little we get out of Christ. There are unsearchable riches in Him. Be strong in the grace that is in Him. Live out of yourself, and live upon Him; go and tell Him, that, since He requires all this of thee, He must give thee grace according to your need. My God shall supply all your need, according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. He hath showed you one that is good, even the fair Immanuel: now lean upon Him; get life from Him that shall never die; get living water from Him that shall never dry up. Let His hand hold you up amid the billows of this tempestuous sea. Let His shoulder carry you over the thorns of this wilderness. Look as much to Him for sanctification as for justification.
So will your walk be close with God,
Calm and serene your frame;
So purer light shall mark the road
That leads you to the Lamb.
