The Wonderful Workings of God for His Church and People by Samuel Bolton, D.D. (1606-1654)
Samuel Bolton, D.D. (1606-1654) was a Westminster divine and Puritan scholar, and has been praised by many of his contemporaries as a great reformed preacher as well as a humble Christian.
Exodus 15:11 says, “Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” Here Bolton draws the truth that our wonderful God does wonderful things for his church and people. God does not only do wonders, but great wonders (Psa. 136:4). No, mighty wonders (Dan. 4:3). He does amazing, astonishing wonders for his church and his people. What are these? How does he do them? When does he do them? Will he do them for us?
It is the church’s duty to understand God’s glory and his wonders; and make known his glory and his wonders to all people. But to declare it we must understand it, and in understanding it, such compels us to declare it, for we cannot hold our tongues back to testify to the glorious wonders of God’s work. Those who truly are partakers of his glorious grace, found in no one else than Jesus Christ, must testify by their life and witness, and their praise, of God’s glorious and wondrous works. What an encouragement to the hungry and thirsty soul seeking the beauty of God and his works!
This is the substance of what Bolton will explain in detail, and will demonstrate, as he considers the wonderful workings of God to his church and people.
