George Fox (1624-1691)

Epistle 245
1666

"The Rock of Ages"

O FRIENDS, let Righteousness flow amongst you all, Truth and Equity, Uprightness and Holiness, which becomes the House of God; and live in the holy Order of the Life, Spirit and Power of the Everlasting God. Keep in the Faith that works by Love, that purifieth your Hearts . . . in this you have all pure Unity; and you edifie and build up in the Holy Faith the Gift of God; and this is that which is to be contended for, which is the same that was once delivered to the Saints. O live in the pure Hope, which purifies you as he is pure; which Hope is Christ . . . and so feel Christ your Hope, which anchors your immortal Souls, that staies it in all Waves, Storms and Tempests, and is sure and safe in all Weathers; Christ, who is the same to-day as he was yesterday; so no new thing. For he is the Rock of Ages, who was before Ages.
