“It is a good thing when a man has a house of his own, thus to convert it into a church, by dedicating it to the service and honour of God, that it may be a Bethel, a house of God, and not a Bethaven, a house of vanity and iniquity. Every good Christian who is a householder, no doubt doth this habitually and virtually; having first given his own self to the Lord, he freely surrenders all he has to him.” –Matthew Henry
Here is a worth-while book. Obviously we have our differences about infant baptism, but this is a worthwhile read. When you browse a Christian bookstore and you happen across a book like this one you can tell in just a few minutes that it has much greater “weight” than most contemporary books. I have a weakness for good covers, too, so this one caught my eye and made its way into my library. May God give us homes like the one the great puritan divine describes here.
