1 October 1662 A.D. Parliament Evicts 400 Presbyterian Pastors from Scotland--Act of Glasgow
John M’Main best summarizes our feelings in relations to the Covenanters. How can we read such a post like this, “without blushing for our low attainments and small proficiency in the school of Christ! How unlike we are to them! How zealous were they for the honor of Christ! How lukewarm are we, of whatever profession or denomination! How burning were their love to Him, His truths, ordinances, and people! How cold is ours! How selfish and worldly are we!” May a post from church history, from This Day in Presbyterian History, be used by the Holy Spirit to cause us to examine ourselves, to confess our sins of commission and omission, to seek to be filled with the Holy Spirit once again, to rededicate our lives to King Jesus again, to be the salt and light of the world once again, in that place where we are, by God’s grace.
