"Here is another spring of consolation to all those living branches that are truly engrafted into the stock; all true believers that are made one with Jesus Christ; let them know that being in him they will find him a generous and a vigorous stock, full of sap, full of juice, full of virtue, sufficient to keep and maintain spiritual life in them in the midst of the hardest winters, or most scorching summers, the sharpest solstices or temptations, or persecutions that can happen to them." John Brinsley, The Christian's Union, Communion and Conformity to Jesus Christ in His Death and Resurrection
Zeal is that by which the penitent Christian persists in his godly sorrow under all checks and diversions; and perseveres in his course of mortification against all opposition of the world, or his corrupt self; fighting against what hinders, and flinging off all encumbrances, and following heaven with force and violence, (Matt. 11:12)." Zachary Crofton, The Nature, Necessity and Character of True Repentance
