BE HOLY PATCH STICKER (H)
Cowards never won heaven. Do not claim that you are begotten of God and you have His royal blood running in your veins unless you can prove your lineage by His heroic spirit: to dare to be holy in spite of men and devils. -William Gurnall
This is a call to measure one's life by setting higher standards, especially in a time where some embrace evil while we fight a spiritual and physical battle for our minds and souls. It's a mission to live a life worthy of a greater purpose, challenging us to rethink our lifestyles, to move forward boldly without looking back. These are crucial times where our actions truly matter, even if it comes at a cost. Simply living comfortably and expecting others to protect us while neglecting our responsibilities is cowardly. We need individuals who will stand for righteousness regardless of the sacrifice involved. This is a challenge to consider how you will live the rest of your life, urging us to move from the sidelines and take action.
Gurnall is known by his Christian in Complete Armour, published in three volumes, dated 1655, 1658 and 1662. It consists of sermons or lectures delivered by the author in the course of his regular ministry, in a consecutive course on Ephesians 6: 10–20. It is described as a magazine whence the Christian is furnished with spiritual arms for the battle, helped on with his armour, and taught the use of his weapon; together with the happy issue of the whole war. It is thus considered a classic on spiritual warfare. The work is more practical than theological; and its style and its fervent religious tone continued to render it still popular with some readers. Richard Baxter and John Flavel both thought highly of the book. Toplady used to make copious extracts from it in his common-place book. John Newton, the converted slave trader, said that if he were confined to one book beside the Bible, he'd choose Christian Armour. Richard Cecil spent many of the last days of his life in reading it, and repeatedly expressed his admiration of it. Charles Haddon Spurgeon commented that Gurnall's work is "peerless and priceless; every line full of wisdom. The book has been preached over scores of times and is, in our judgment, the best thought-breeder in all our library." In 1988 Banner of Truth Trust published a revised and abridged version in contemporary English.
