Every saint is God’s temple – Thomas Brooks

It was a choice saying of Augustine, ‘Every saint is God’s temple, and he that carries his temple around with him, may go to prayer when he pleases.’ Some saints have never had so much of heaven brought down into their hearts, as when, they have been with God in a corner. Oh, the secret manifestations of divine love, the secret kisses, the secret embraces, the secret influences, the secret communion with God, that many a precious Christian has had in the most solitary places: it may be behind the door, or behind the wall, or behind the hedge, or behind the arbour, or behind the tree, or behind the rock, or behind the bush, etc. – Thomas Brooks
