Sufferings

To Earlston, Younger

“I remain still a prisoner of hope, and do think it service to the Lord to wait on still with submission, till the Lord’s morning sky break, and his summer day dawn. For I am persuaded, it is a piece of the chief errand of our life, that God sent us for some years down to this earth, among devils and men, the fire-brands of the devil, and temptations, that we might suffer for a time here amongst our enemies…but seeing a piece of suffering is carved to every one of us, less or more, as Infinite Wisdom hath thought good, our part is to harden and habituate our soft and thin-skinned nature to endure fire and water, devils, lions, men, losses, wo (sorrowful) hearts as those that are looked upon by God, angels, men and devils.”

S.R.
Letters of Samuel Rutherford (1637)


Letters of Samuel Rutherford

To Lady Kenmure

“If my Lord would be pleased, I would desire some were dealt with for my return to Anwoth (the place where he was pastoring but he is now in prison); but if that never be, thank God, Anwoth is not heaven, preaching is not Christ; I hope to wait on.”

S.R. Aberdeen 1637

By Faith…

“Madam, when you are come to the other side of the water, and have set down your foot on the shore of glorious eternity, and look back again to the waters, and to your wearisome journey, and shall see in that clear glass of endless glory nearer to the bottom of God’s wisdom, you shall then be forced to say, ‘If God had done otherwise with me, then he hath done, I had never come to the enjoying this crown and glory’.”

Samuel Rutherford, “Letters of Samuel Rutherford”

Have you heard people say, “I don’t feel led to do that.” Certainly, there could be something legitimate to this statement. Conviction (I’m already doing too much) or preparedness (I don’t have the proper training for this) or wisdom (I have sought cousel from others and they do not see that I am a fit for this). But sometimes this is used as a means to get out of doing something. I mean I’m not eager for people to do things they do not want to do but let’s make sure we are obeying the Lord and walking through the biblical way to discern what we should and should not do. Though this sermon doesn’t answer everything I mentioned, it does speak to how Jesus uses circumstances and prior discipling to lead us to where he is at work.
