'The treasures of a saint are the presence of God, the pardon of sin, the joy of the Spirit, the peace of conscience, which are jewels that none can give but Christ, nor none can take away but Christ. Now why should a gracious soul keep off from a way of holiness because of afflictions, when no afflictions can strip a men of his heavenly jewels, which are his his ornaments and his safety here, and will be his happiness and glory hereafter? Why, a believer's treasure is always safe in the hands of Christ; his life is safe, his soul is safe, his grace is safe, his comfort is safe, and his crown is safe in the hand of Christ.'
Thomas Brooks, Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices, p.113.
