It is the nature of faith to believe God upon His bare word… It will not be, saith sense; it cannot be, saith reason; it both can and will be, saith faith, for I have a promise.
— John Trapp
When God calls a man, He does not repent of it. God does not, as many friends do, love one day, and hate another; or as princes, who make their subjects favorites, and afterwards throw them into prison. This is the blessedness of a saint; his condition admits of no alteration. God’s call is founded upon His decree, and His decree is immutable. Acts of grace cannot be reversed. God blots out His people’s sins, but not their names.
— Thomas Watson
