As Wise As Serpents – Luke 22:35-38

As Wise As Serpents – Luke 22:35-38

The life of a saint is nothing but a life of faith. His prayer is the breathing of faith (Jas. 5:15). His obedience is the result of faith (Romans 16:26). A godly man lives by faith in Christ, as the beam lives in the sun: “I live; yet not I—but Christ lives in me” (Gal. 2:20). A Christian, by the power of faith, sees above human reason, trades above the moon (2 Cor. 4:18). By faith his heart is calmed and quieted; he trusts himself and all his affairs to God (Psalm 112:7). As in a time of war, men get into a garrison and trust themselves and their treasures there, so “the name of the Lord is a strong tower” (Proverbs 18:10), and a believer trusts all that he is worth in this garrison. “I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day” (2 Tim. 1:12). God trusted Paul with his gospel, and Paul trusted God with his soul. – Thomas Watson
