We should like an independent fortune, but it cannot be

This is a beggar’s life; here’s nothing but alms. We don’t like it. We want some stock; if we could get it, we should like an independent fortune. But it cannot be. The Spirit of Jesus will witness of nothing, and glorify nothing but the Saviour’s all sufficient grace; and therefore he sets himself against all our greatness and goodness - that he who glorieth may glory only in the Lord Christ.
