“Tremble Even In Secret”

1 02 2008

Sunday’s sermon text carries one of those great passages about Christ’s intimate devotion to the Father. How he would tuck away in solitude with His Father for protracted seasons of prayer.

Thomas Watson created a catechism question based on the nature of God and our need to tremble before Him—like Christ—even in secret.

Q: What is the first lesson to be learnt from God’s infinity?

A: That therefore men should tremble even in secret.

– Flavel, VI: 147.
