John Flavel was one of those great Puritans who learned from his Bible and the Apostle Paul was life was all about. Too many of us are scattered and waste our lives and our energies on a thousand things accomplishing little or nothing. Today’s devotional shows you how to avoid that kind of folly. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
I Corinthians 2:2 (ESV)
2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
“Christ shall be the center to which all the lines of my ministry shall be drawn. I have spoken and written of many other subjects in my sermons and epistles, but it is all reductively the preaching and discovering of Jesus Christ: of all the subjects in the world, this is the sweetest; if there be any thing on this side of heaven worthy our time and studies, this is it.” [The Works of John Flavel I (Edinburgh: The Banner of Truth Trust, 1820), p. 33]
