The heart itself is only a small vessel,
yet dragons are there, and lions,
there are poisonous beasts,
and all the treasures of evil,
there are rough and uneven roads,
there are precipes;
but there too is God and the angels,
life is there, and the Kingdom,
there too is light, and there the apostles
and heavenly cities,
and treasures of grace.
All things lie within that little space.
Just as the blessings of God are unutterably great, so their acquisition requires much hardship and toil undertaken with hope and faith.
Love is inseparable from knowledge.
As the Lord put on the body, leaving behind all principality and power, so Christians put on the Holy Spirit, and are at rest.
