Excerpt from Choice gems from William Gurnall

The gospel is God’s heart in print!

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

That book must be worth reading—that has God for the author!

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Do not say that  you love Christ, so long as you can lay those sins in your bosom—which plucked His heart out of His bosom! It were strange if a child should keep, and delight to use, no other knife but that with which his mother was stabbed to death!

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

The pleasures of sin must needs be short, because life cannot be long—and they both end together.

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Cease to pray—and you will begin to sin.
Prayer is not only a means to prevail for mercy—but also to prevent sin.

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

To forsake sin, is to leave it without any thought reserved of returning to it again.

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

The sheep may fall into a ditch—but it is the swine that wallows in it!
Take heed of deliberate sins!

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

“He who is his own teacher, is sure to have a fool for a master!”

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Of all men out of Hell, none more to be pitied than he who hangs over the mouth of it, and yet is fearless of his danger.

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

A Christian should deny himself of the world’s carnal joys and delights, lest the ungodly say, “These Christians draw their joy out of our cistern!”

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

He who has God’s heart—cannot lack His arm!

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

It is impossible for an evil heart, to think well of an afflicting God.

Gurnall Choice gems from William Gurnall

William Gurnall (1616 – 12 October 1679) was an English author and Anglican clergyman born at King’s Lynn, Norfolk, where he was baptised on 17 November 1616.

He was educated at the free grammar school of his native town, and in 1631 was nominated to the Lynn scholarship in Emmanuel College, Cambridge, where he graduated BA in 1635 and MA in 1639.[1] He was made rector of St Peter and St Paul’s Church, Lavenham in Suffolk in 1644; and before he received that appointment he seems to have officiated, perhaps as curate, at Sudbury.[2]

At the Restoration he signed the declaration required by the Act of Uniformity 1662, and on this account he was the subject of a libellous attack, published in 1665, entitled Covenant-Renouncers Desperate Apostates.[2]
