The Godly Man's Picture :: Some Quotes

The other day I started reading "The Godly Man's Picture" by Thomas Watson. It is one of the Puritan Paperbacks and a wonderful book. Here's a few quotes from this great book:

"When the Lord pardons a sinner, He does not pay a debt, but gives a legacy."
"A man has no more power to change himself than to create himself."
"He who has only a painted heaven shall have only a painted happiness."
"Many take Christ as Jesus, but refuse Him as Lord."

And, on a side note, Happy 1st day of October!!!
