How shall a man be trained up, that he may get the skill of living by faith * 1/' VERY man hath his shifts and tricks, and S*#S lives by his own devices; and the devil hath enough of them in the world that live this life; but the best life of all is little looked after. Now for an answer, know thus much, that there are three particulars for the training up the heart to learn this skill of living by faith. 1. We must labour to get matter for our faith to work upon. 2. We must labour to fit faith for the work. 3. We must labour to order our faith aright in the work. I. First, we must provide matter for our faith to work upon. For this we see ordinarily, if a workman want mutter to work upon, either a carpenter or the like; he must needs cease his work, and he can go no further. And if a man's work fails, how can he provide for his family? This is the complaint of poor people now-a-days, that they have no work. So it is in a Christian's course; many poor Christians that are newly set up, and are not aforehandin the world, they want even matter for their faith. I mean some are ignorant and cannot read, and some have not means of a preaching-ministry, others have but small parts and cannot hear, and little do they retain of what they do hear. The promises of God are not understood, nor remembered, nor rightly applied. They live marvellously poor, when they might live very comfortably in the world. Now the matter of our faith, is the whole word of God. As the spider gathers poison out of every flower; so the bee gathers honey out of the same flowers, and out of the sweetest flower she sucks the most honey. Oh the word of God, how full of sweet flowers is it! There, the sharpest terrors, and the most fearful plagues...
