The Doing Man Will Be Found The Happiest Man

“Know that it is not the knowing, nor the talking, nor the reading man, but the doing man, that at last will be found the happiest man. ‘If you know these things, blessed and happy are you if you do them.’ ‘Not every man that saith, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of my Father that is in heaven.’ (John 13:17; Matthew 7:21). Judas called Christ Lord, Lord, and yet betrayed him, and is gone to his place. Ah! how many Judases have we in these days, that kiss Christ, and yet betray Christ; that in their words profess him, but in their works deny him; that bow their knee to him, and yet in their hearts despise them; that call him Jesus, and yet will not obey him for their Lord.”

– Thomas Brooks, Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices, p.22
