Where the world comes to study the Bible

I Humbly Bless God

I humbly bless his gracious Providence,
who gave me his Treasure in an Earthen Vessel,
and trained me up on the School of Affliction,
and taught me the Cross of Christ so soon;
that I might be rather Theologus Crucis, as Luther speaketh,
than Theologus Gloriae;
and a Cross-bearer, than a Cross-maker or Imposer.

Richard Baxter in Reliquiae Baxterianae; or Narrative of His Life and Times, I, 21. Quoted in Christianity Today, March 9, 1992, p. 45
