Preface - While Joab besiegeth Rabbah, David committeth adultery with Uriah's wife. Bath-sheba conceiveth; David sendeth for Uriah from the army, who cometh to David, but refuseth to go down to his house. He carrieth to Joab a letter requiring his death, is exposed in the front of the battle, and slain. Joab sendeth the news of it to David. The messenger's report, and David's answer. David taketh Bath-sheba to wife, who beareth a son.
2 Samuel 11
Preface - Paul declareth his unwearied zeal and integrity in preaching the gospel; so that if any see not the truth of it, it must be owing to their corrupt hearts, not to want of clear light. The wakness and sufferings he was exposed to redounded to the praise fo God's power. That which animated him in undergoing them for the church's sake was the assurance of a more exceeding and eternal reward.

Q77 - Are the infants of such as are professing, to be baptized?
A - The infants of such as are professing believers are not to be baptized because there is neither command nor example in the Holy Scriptures for their baptism.

The third heaven of the believer's privileges
For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. - Romans 14 v 7
Surely this privilege is more than all that went before. Peace with God is a blessed thing, but it does not imply that the heart is burning with intense joy and love in view of a reconciled God. Access to His favour is a blessed thing; but it only implies liberty of coming before Him with acceptance. Joy in hope of glory is a blessed thing; but is in the very nature of it a happiness whose object is unenjoyed and afar off. Joy in tribulation, again, is a blessed thing; but it is a happiness which can only be enjoyed upon the earth. It is a joy, too, in spirt of misery - a perfecting, but surely not a perfect joy. But joy in God is the most blessed thing of all. This is the third heaven of the believer's privileges - a joy which all the redeemed are sharing with angels - a joy begun in this world, made perfect in glory.
