Thomas Watson – Strive for Godliness!

15 Oct

E. THERE ARE ONLY A FEW GODLY
They are like the gleanings after vintage. Most receive the mark of the beast (Rev. 13:17). The devil keeps open house for all comers, and he is never without guests. This may prevail with us to be godly. If the number of the saints is so small, how we should strive to be found among these pearls! ‘But a remnant shall be saved’ (Rom. 9:27). It is better to go to heaven with a few than to hell in the crowd.
