Silver Drops of the Sanctuary

In today’s reading from The Godly Man’s Picture, Thomas Watson writes that holiness is a characteristic of a godly man.

“It is one thing to profess God, another thing to resemble Him.”

“It is the object of the Word preached. The silver drops of the sanctuary are to water the seed of grace, and make a crop of holiness spring up.”

“What are all God’s providential dispensations for, but to promote holiness? As the Lord makes use of all the seasons of the year, frost and heat, to produce the harvest, so all prosperous and adverse providences are for the promoting of the work of holiness in the soul.”

Thomas Watson wrote The Godly Man’s Picture in 1666. The quotes above are from chapter 4, section 4.
