Thomas Watson – Walking With God (Part 1)

17 Oct

QUESTION: What may we do to walk with God?

ANSWER 1: Get off the old road of sin. He that would walk in a pleasant meadow must turn off the road. The way of sin is full of travelers. There are so many travelers on this road that hell, though it is of a great circumference, would gladly enlarge itself and make room for them (Isa. 5:14). This way of sin seems pleasant but the end is damnable. ‘I have’, says the harlots, ‘perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes and cinnamon’ (Prov. 7:17). See how with one sweet (the cinnamon) there were two bitters (myrrh and aloes). For that little sweet in sin at present there will be a far greater proportion of bitterness afterwards. Therefore get out of these briars. You cannot walk with God and sin: ‘what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?’ (2 Cor. 6:14).
