Puritan Board Senior
In a time where the visible Church has much splitting, I found this quote my Thomas Watson (HTBS) to be a sweet meditation this Lord’s Day. May it be a blessing for you as well. From pg. 76 - 77 of the 2020 Paperback Reprint by Soli Deo Gloria Publications:
In that blessed kingdom there shall be freedom from divisions. In this world God's own tribes go to war. Ephraim envies Judah, and Judah vexes Ephraim. The soldier's spear pierced Christ's side—but the divisions of saints pierce his heart. Christ prayed that all his people might be one, as he and his Father are one, Jo. 17:21. But how do Christians by their discords and animosities go about with all their power to frustrate Christ's prayer! But in the kingdom of Heaven there is perfect love, which as it casts out fear, so it casts out strife. Those Christians that could not live quietly together here, in that kingdom shall be united. There Calvin and Luther are agreed. In that celestial kingdom there shall be no vilifying or slandering one another, no raking into those sores which Christ died to heal. Christians who could not pray together, shall sing together in that glorious choir: there shall not be one jarring string in the saints" music.
