Second John 2 says, “For the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us forever.”
Once the truth of God obtains an entrance into the human heart and subdues the whole man unto itself, no power — human or infernal — can dislodge it. We entertain it not as a guest but as the master of the house — this is a Christian necessity, he is no Christian who doth not thus believe. Those who feel the vital power of the gospel, and know the might of the Holy Ghost as he opens, applies, and seals the Lord’s Word, would sooner be torn to pieces than be rent away from the gospel of their salvation. What a thousand mercies are wrapped up in the assurance that the truth will be with us forever; will be our living support, our dying comfort, our rising song, our eternal glory; this is Christian privilege, without it our faith were little worth.
