Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards: #56

56. Resolved, never to give over, nor in the least to slacken my fight with my corruptions, however unsuccessful I may be.

He must have failed or given up at times. Otherwise he wouldn't have made this resolution. This weakness in a spiritual giant is a comfort for the rest of us. Indeed, it is the Lord who keeps His saints, while saints stumble over many times.
