None a Loser

An extract from a letter by the Puritan preacher, Joseph Alleine, to his wife, explaining how the Lord would take care of them in a new pastoral charge, even though the salary would be small. It was written May 27, 1659:

That none ever was, or ever shall be, a loser by Jesus Christ. Many have lost much for him, but never did, [and] never shall any lose by him.

Life and Letters of Joseph Alleine, by Rev. Richard Baxter, Theodosia Alleine, and others, with a new introduction by Joel R. Beeke and Herb Samworth, Reformation Heritage Books, reprinted in 2003, p. 142.
