Thomas Watson
Though heaven be given us freely, yet we must contend for it, "Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might" (Eccl. 9:10)
Watson quotes
We may read many truths in the Bible, but we cannot know them savingly, till God by his Spirit shines upon our soul.
Watson
In Adam we all suffered shipwreck and repentance is the only plank left us after shipwreck to swim to heaven.




Watson Thomas quotes
Seriousness is the Christian's ballast which keeps him from being overturned with vanity.
Watson Thomas
The first sermon that Christ preached, indeed, the first word of his sermon was 'Repent'.
Thomas Watson quotes
Obedience carries in it the life-blood of religion.
Thomas Watson
Repentance is a pure gospel grace. The covenant of works admitted no repentance; there it was, sin and die. Repentance came in by the gospel. Christ has purchased in his blood that repenting sinners shall be saved.
Watson Thomas quotes
Repentance is never out of season.
Watson
O that we would therefore, while we are on this side of the grave, make our peace with God! Tomorrow may be our dying day; let this be our repenting day.
Watson Thomas
Though the way of religion has thorns in it with respect to persecution, yet it is full of roses with respect to that inward peace and contentment that the soul finds in it.
Thomas Watson
There is nothing that can hurt the soul but sin; it is not affliction that hurts it, it often makes it better, as the furnace makes gold the purer; but it is sin that damnifies.




Thomas Watson quotes
Repentance is a grace of God's Spirit whereby a sinner is inwardly humbled and visibly reformed.
Thomas Watson
The excellence of a thing is the end for which it was made; as of a star to give light, and of a plant to be fruitful. So the excellence of a Christian is to answer the end of his creation, which is to hallow Godís name, and live to that God by whom he lives.
