I acknowledge that to rest our hopes upon such evidence as I propose, that is, upon a consciousness of our being the subjects of those dispositions to which the Scriptures promise salvation, is not the way to be always happy. If we indulge in secret sin, or live in the neglect of known duty, or sink into a spirit of conformity to the world or a spirit of Laodicean lukewarmness, or be careless as to a close walk with God, or attend on ordinances without desire after communion with him – in either of these cases, we shall, in a great degree, lose our consciousness of love of God, and consequently live in fear and bondage. Indeed, it is better that we should live so, than to go about to persuade ourselves that all is well, and so settle upon our lees in ungrounded security. [Bonus sentence] Though, after all, it is not desirable to live in such bondage, and the way to be delivered from it is to abound in those means which tend to cherish our love to God; for perfect love will cast out fear.
