Quotable Sedgwick

It has been a long time.  Shockingly(!) there has been no time for blogging:

But, the weekly blog should be back now, D.V.  In a hint of what may be discussed over the coming weeks here is Obadiah Sedgwick on the glory of the covenant of grace:

All the desirable delicacies of the soul are treasured up in the Covenant of God’s Grace; in it are contained all the gracious attributes in God, all the gracious affections of God, all the gracious relations of God, all the gracious promises and engagements of God. There you find the reconciled God, the merciful God, the pardoning God, the sin-subduing God, the strengthening and helping God, the guiding and upholding God, the blessing and comforting God; you cannot think of a mercy for the soul, of a mercy for the body, of a mercy for this life, of a happiness after this life, but there it is, but there it is for you, but there it is assuredly for you.
