This lesson concludes Thomas Boston’s book, The Crook in the Lot, by considering the 6 things which prepare us to be lifted up, and describe the final lifting up which God promises us at death.This has been a most blessed study for me personally. I have been much encouraged to face my trials with trust, endurance, patience, humility, faithfulness, & fruitfulness. May God help me to do so. And I trust this study has been a blessing for you as well. ––If it has, please feel free to email me and let me know!We’ll follow this up with a few weeks on Thomas Case’s study on affliction and then a study through Thomas Watson’s Art of Divine Contentment. ––stay tuned!
