Wisdom of the Ages – Thomas Boston

The regenerate man’s desires are rectified; they are set on God himself, and the things above

Wisdom of the Ages

“The regenerate man’s desires are rectified; they are set on God himself, and the things above… Before, he saw no beauty in Christ, for which he was to be desired; but now he is all he desires, he is altogether lovely… regenerating grace sets the affections so firmly on God, that the man is disposed, at God’s command, to quit his hold of every thing else, in order to keep his hold of Christ… If the stream of our affections were never thus turned, we are, doubtless, going down the stream into the pit”
