Manton On Approaching God As Sons

Pagans are strangers, and carnal men in the church are bastards; they had need study holiness that would claim kindred of Christ. Consider then what claim and interest have you in God? It is sad if we can only come as creatures, cry as ravens for food, out of a general title to his providence, or to cry, Father, and lie; to take his name in vain. It is sweeter to speak to God as a son than as a creature.
– Thomas Manton – Sermon on John 17:1.
