John Brinsley (1600-1665), the younger, was a Presbyterian puritan divine who was a powerful Reformed Gospel preacher and writer.
Brinsley masterfully, but tenderly, explains Matthew 3:12, “And he will thoroughly purge his floor.” He demonstrates that God, the great husbandman, has put the fan into the hand of this his righteous servant, the Lord Jesus Christ, that he should purge his floor, his church. He shows that Christ will do this faithfully and thoroughly. Our desire should be that we have the Church of Jesus Christ among us thoroughly purged. Here the Church of God will be blessed with a happy reformation of what is now amiss among us concerning corporate and personal sin. He covers practical exhortations on what it means to have true reformation, such as being thankful for what we have; that we mourn over what we lack. This is not something to do just a church, but we ought to begin the work of reformation at home, in our own hearts, lives, and families. If we do this, we will earnestly pray for and quietly wait for such a reformation as may be after God’s own heart and mind. It is then the church will be pleased to thankfully receive it, and humbly submit to it This is a wonderful work on how true reformation should take hold of every church and every Christian for the glory of God.
