The Christian’s Duty to Walk Wisely – by Matthew Mead (1630-1699)


This is, no doubt, one of the best works we’ve ever published. In a simple and easy to follow manner, in two parts, Mead teaches Christians how to fight against Satan’s temptations, and walk wisely in the trials that come to them from God. Secondly, he also shows the Christian how to love Christ more, and love the world less. This is a rare puritan work, and ought to be required reading for every Christian who desires to combat the world, the flesh and devil so that they might walk wisely before God.

Matthew Mead (Meade) (1630-1699) was an independent puritan divine, and popular reformed preacher and morning lecturer at Stepney Church (London).

God commands that all Christians are to walk wisely while they live in the world. This command is taken from Ephesians 5:15-16, “…walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise.” Here, Matthew Mead delivers an unparalleled work on wise walking, specifically during times of temptation since, “the days are evil.” His main doctrine is that it is the Christian’s duty to walk wisely in times of temptation. He then gives 7 main points, and 13 particular points to show the wisdom of walking wisely in any time of temptation. This is a rare puritan gem that should be in the hands of every believer that he might be armed against the attacks of Satan’s temptations.

In the second half of this volume is Mead’s sermon, “The Power of Grace in Weaning the Heart from the World,” taken from Psalm 131:2, “My soul is even as a weaned child.” Here Mead shows the Christian how to die daily to the world, and where the grace of God takes hold of the soul, it makes it as a weaned child to all worldly things. The Christian finds more of Christ which makes him detest the ways of the world day by day.
