Many today believe that the Christian life is rather easy to both obtain and live. But the Puritans saw it as warfare, as wrestling, as "holy violence," to use their term. The Apostle Paul spoke of beating his own body into subjection. And this holy violence is to be brought not only against one's own self, but against Satan, the world, and heaven too. And in this confrontation, we must use the weapons God has given us- reading the Word, hearing the Word, prayer, meditation, self-examination, and the due observance of the Lord's Day. Allow Thomas Watson to be your guide through the minefield that lies between us and heaven.
