Since The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment by Jeremiah Burroughs is one of the two books in this pile I haven't read a bit of yet, I decided to check out page 123. Well, this book was written by a Puritan so the sentences are long! I had to read down the page a ways to find the fourth sentence. Here's what follows:
"That is, when all shall be in a hubbub and uproar, yet then this man shall be peace. That is the trial of grace, when you find Jesus Christ to be peace in your hearts when the Assyrian shall come into the land. You may think you find peace in Christ when you have no outward troubles, but is Christ your peace when the Assyrian comes into the land, when the enemy comes?"
Good question to ask myself! I'm looking forward to reading the previous pages and those that follow with Coty in the next couple of months.
Thanks for tagging me, Kelly. I had a good time checking out page 123 in several of the books in the stack. Now I tag Jessica, Jenn, and Amber!
