Undeniable Evidence

"Men may tire themselves in a Labyrinth of Search, and talk of God; but if we would know him indeed, it must be from the impressions we receive of him; and the softer our Hearts are, the deeper and livelier those will be upon us.

If he has made us sensible of his Justice, by his reproof; of Patience, by his forbearance; of his Mercy, by his forgiveness; of His Holiness, by the Sanctification of our hearts through his Spirit; we have a grounded knowledge of God. This is Experience, that speculation; This enjoyment, that report. In short, this is undeniable Evidence, with the realities of Religion, and will stand all Winds and Weathers."
