Want to Grow? (2)

April 21, 2010

Maybe I’m wrong, but I have a feeling not everyone I’ve rubbed shoulders with in the Reformed world would be comfortable with how Thomas Watson discusses holiness, and the motivations the Christian should lay hold of. #5 and #10 especially I don’t hear talked about much.

(5) The more we grow in grace, the more God will love us.
(10) The more we grow in grace, the more we will flourish in glory.

Now, he explains each of these much further (so please read them in context with his whole picture in mind!). Here’s the rest:

(1) Growth is the end of the ordinances. . .

(2) The growth of grace is the best evidence of the truth of it. . .

(3) Growth in grace is the beauty of a Christian. . .

(4) The more we grow in grace, the more glory we bring to God. . .

(5) The more we grow in grace, the more will God love us. . .

(6) We need to grow in grace. . .

(7) The growth of grace will hinder the growth of corruption. . .

(8) We cannot grow too much in grace; there is no nimium, no excess there. . .

(9) Such as do not grow in grace, decay in grace. . .

(10) The more we grow in grace, the more we shall flourish in glory. . .
