He had been kind to a prophet, and therefore he received a prophet’s reward, and moreover he had put his trust in the Lord, and therefore the saving mark was set upon him. If we cannot be prophets 01 ministers, let us be their friends, and the friends of Jesus, and we shall share in their salvation.
There is a safe and secret place
Beneath the wings divine,
Reserved for all the heirs of grace,
Oh! be that refuge mine!
The least, the feeblest there may hide
Uninjured and unawed;
While thousands fall on every side,
He rests secure in God.
Believer, here thy comfort stands,
From first to last salvation’s free;
And everlasting love demands
An everlasting song from thee.
