Where is your security?

In his book The Art of Man Fishing Thomas Boston says,

As fish in the water love deep places and wells, and are most frequently found there; so wicked men have a great love to carnal security, and have no will to strive against the stream. Fish love deep places best, where there is least noise. O how careful are natural men to keep all quiet, that there may be nothing to disturb them in their rest in sin! they love to be secure, which is their destruction. O my soul, beware of carnal security, of being secure, though plunged over head and ears in sin.” 

What a great truth about the world we live in and a great warning for the believer to always find their security in Christ.

Soli Deo Gloria,

Aaron
