John Brinsley (1600-1665), the younger, was a Presbyterian puritan divine who was a powerful Reformed Gospel preacher and writer.
In this wonderful treatment on Exodus 14:13, “…stand still…,” John Brinsley teaches us to “stand.” This word in the mouth of a soldier is a word of command. First, he shows that Christians are to hold their tongues still, not murmuring. Secondly, keep their hearts still. Thirdly, God would have Christians to hold their feet still as well. In the fear of God, Christians are to learn what it means to stand still in the sight of God. Then, once they learn what it means to stand still, they should be, “up and doing” for Christ. Doing what they can for the furtherance of the great work of reformation. Every Christian is a reforming Christian beginning at home; they are reforming their own hearts, lives, and families. Then they ought to do what they can for the reforming of others.
