Puritan works by Jeremiah Burroughs are always chock-full of sound doctrine, exemplifying God’s grace and the truth of the Gospel. This book is no exception. It is a work that in his day, and ours, has profound applications. As Christians we must fear God instead of men, and we ought to live a life of holy courage daily.
Burroughs takes us on a journey through the doctrines that he lifts from Hebrews 11:27 in dealing with Moses forsaking Egypt. He teaches us that wicked men (especially when they have power) are very fierce and outrageous in their wrath when anything crosses them. And then secondly, true faith will keep a gracious heart from immoderate fear of men in the world, regardless of how great they are, or how much power they think they have. God is on the side of His people, and He will be with them.
It is a masterful treatise that applies to every Christian in every age. Christians should have godly faith which exemplifies HOLY COURAGE glorifying the LORD JESUS CHRIST in the sight of all men.
