Receiving the Promises of God

"God has sealed to the promises with His truth, His word, and His oath. Let us now mutually seal them with our faith. John 3:33: ‘He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.’ It is the highest disparagement to a person of known integrity not to receive his testimony; and yet man, by departing from his God, has forfeited his credibility… Now if we can receive the witness of man, who is branded upon record as being a liar, that he goes astray as soon as he is born, speaking lies (Psalm 58:3), what a reproach do we cast upon God, who is the truth, all whose promises are ‘yea and amen in Christ to the glory of God’ (2Corinthians 1:20). And thus the apostle argues in 1John 5:9, ‘If we receive the witness of men [as we must], the witness of God is greater.’… Let us come off roundly with God, put our seal to His promises, and make all the world know to its shame that we have a God whom we can securely trust."
