A Glass to Reveal the Imperfections - Samuel Bolton

The law was given, not only as a director of duties, but as a glass to reveal the imperfections in our performance of duties, that so we might be kept humble and vile in our own eyes, and that we might live more out of ourselves and more in Christ.

It was given so that we might fly to Christ upon all occasions, as a defiled man flees to the fountain to be washed and cleansed, for in Christ there is mercy to cover, and grace to cure all our infirmities.

Taken from the book The True Bounds of Christian Freedom

by Samuel Bolton 1645
