This is God’s Great Mart or Fair-Day for the Soul

“Neither is there any ordinary means of gaining strength and grace in the inward man like this, of due observing the sabbath. For this is God’s great mart or fair-day for the soul, on which you may buy of Christ wine, milk, bread, marrow and fatness, gold, white raiment, eye salve, — even all things which are necessary, and which will satisfy, and cause the soul to live. It is the special day of proclaiming and sealing of pardons to penitent sinners. It is God’s special day of publishing and sealing your patent of eternal life. It is a blessed day, sanctified for all these blessed purposes.”

– Henry Scudder
