The Soul's Market: Bunyan Gems

From John Bunyan's Dying Sayings:

“Take heed of giving thyself liberty of committing one sin, for that will lead thee to another; till, by an ill custom, it become natural.”

"In times of affliction we commonly meet with the sweetest experiences of the love of God."

"Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man to cease from prayer."

"Forsake not the public worship of God, lest God forsake thee, not only in public, but in private."

"Make the Lord's day the market for thy soul; let the whole day be spent in prayer, repetitions, or meditations; lay aside the affairs of the other part of the week; let thy sermon thou hast heard be converted into prayer."
