Don't look in the wrong place

Samuel Bolton on law, gospel, justification and assurance:
Alas, there are multitudes in the world who make a Christ of their own works, and this is their undoing. They look for righteousness and acceptance more in the precept than in the promise, in the law rather than in the Gospel, more in working than in believing...There is something of this spirit in us all; otherwise we should not be up and down so much in respect of our comforts and out faith, as is still so often the case.
The True Bounds of Christian Freedom, p. 70
