If God give you Christ, in the same charter all things are yours, "because ye are Christ's, and Christ is God's." Christ watereth with His blessing all things. If everything that a saint hath be blessed, and everything (to speak so) mercied, and christianed, even "his basket and his dough" (Deut. 28:55Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. (Deuteronomy 28:5)), his inheritance must be blessed; much more all Christ's inheritance must be blessed; because he is the end, the spring, and abstract of all blessings. Now Christ "is appointed heir of all things" (Heb. 1:22Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; (Hebrews 1:2)). Then He is the heir of a draft of water, of brown bread, of a straw bed on the earth, and hard stones to be the pillow. To the saints, to the children of God, hell (so to speak) is heavened, sorrow joyed, poverty riched, death enlivened, dust and the grave animated and quickened with life and the resurrection. God save me from a draft of water without Christ!
