E. B. Pusey was an Anglican theologian, and I seem to like what he has to say, because I have posted several of his quotes (see Advice From E. B. Pusey, Have Patience and Know Yourself/Know God). This one reminds me of the verse from Romans:
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” Romans 8:37
Do you agree?
“Do not try only to abstain from sin, but strive, by God’s grace, to gain the opposite grace. If thou wouldest not slip back into sin, thou must stretch forward to Christ and His holiness. It is a dull, heavy, dreary, toilsome way, just to avoid sin. Thou wouldest not simply not be impatient; thou wouldest long to be like thy Lord, who was meek and lowly of heart. Thou wouldest not only not openly murmur; thou wouldest surely long, like the beloved Apostle to rest on Jesus’ breast and do what He wills.” E.B. Pusey
