“He has presented us with his goodness, when he saw nothing in us but impatience and unbelief, when we were like Jonas in the belly of hell, his bowels yearned over us, and his power brought us safe to land.  What did we do to hasten his deliverance, or to obtain his mercy?  If he had never come to our relief till he saw something in us to invite him, we had not yet been relived.  No more did we contribute to our restoration than we do to the rising of the sun or the approach of day.”  Timothy Rogers (1653-1728)
