Matthew Henry, man what a generic name...

>> Tuesday, February 10, 2009

So, hes got quite the generic cookie-cutter name, but he also has a great bible commentary and got a cool sermon reference from Veritas Community Church this Sunday.

This is paraphrased from Pastor Brad:

Matthew Henry, a Presbyterian minister of the late 17th and early 18th centuries, was once robbed while walking home from his Church. After his death, the date of this robbery was located in his diary, and in it he wrote:

"I thank God that it is I who was robbed, and not I who robbed."

The question is, if you are less sinful than others, what has made you so?
Answer: God's sovereign grace, given freely, apart from merit.

May we never judge the theif, or the gossip, or the wicked, or the unjust, or the hopeless, or the deceiver, or the annoying, or the needy, or the wordly, or the lukewarm christian, or the bad friend, or the unloving, or anyone, but instead thank the Lord for his grace.
