The Five-Fold Peace of a Christian

Tim Brister —  September 25, 2008 — 1 Comment

Continuing in the string of excerpts from Samuel Bolton’s book, The True Bounds of Christian Freedom, I want include Bolton’s commentary on the “five-fold peace of a Christian man.”  Bolton writes:

1.  There is a peace which flows from the witness-bearing of our conscience to our integrity and exact walking.

2.  There is a peace which flows from the soul’s communion and converse with God in duty.

3.  There is a peace which comes to the believer from the exercise of the grace implanted in him.

4.  There is a peace which flows from the sense and knowledge of God’s grace implanted in the soul.

5.  There is a peace which flows from the assurance that God is at peace with the soul, a peace which flows from the sense of Divine favour.

- Samuel Bolton, The True Bounds of Christian Freedom, 156-57.
