Thomas Manton On Law And Gospel

A godly person observed that Christians are usually to blame for three things:

1) they seek in themselves what they can only find in Christ;

2) they seek in the law what will only be found in the gospel;

and

3) they seek on earth what will only be enjoyed in heaven.”

Thomas Manton (1620–77), Commentary on James 3:2 (HT: Shane Lems)
