Faith in God’s Promises – Richard Sibbes

We cannot honour God more than to believe His promises and build on Him.  This will breed love, when we feel the comfort of the promises.  Foolish men think to honour God by compliments, by dead performances…To God, it [is] to seal His truth, that thou shouldst not make Him a liar…Get faith.  That will honour Him, and He will honour thy faith. – Richard Sibbes, Commentary on 2 Corinthians 1 (Works III, 408).
