No Solid Rest in a Sinful Course

Thomas Boston, Works, 6:432-433:

John Everett Millais - Waking, 1865, Perth“Is there any solid rest in a sinful course? No, surely; Isa. 57:21, “There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.” Do not your consciences witness, that the sting of guilt in the conscience is like a dead fly in the ointment, causing all to be unsavoury? Is there not always a worm at the root of every sinful gourd you sit down under the shadow of? Do not the very maybees of conscience suck the sap out of your lusts many times? Will any man say, that ever he found rest to his soul in a course of departing from God? No, no; ten thousand worlds will not satisfy an immortal soul.”
