How Do Hearts Become Broken?

richard_baxterIf a hardened heart be to be broken, it is not stroking, but striking that must do it.… The heart is not melted into godly sorrow, nor raised to the life of faith and love, by the bubbles of a frothy wit, or by a game at words, or useless notions, but by the illuminating beams of sacred truth, and the attraction of divine displayed goodness, communicated from a mind that by faith has seen the glory of God, and by experience found that he is good, and that lives in the love of God: such a one is fitted to assist you first in the knowledge of yourselves, and then in the knowledge of God in Christ. – Richard Baxter
