Trespassers will be Shot on Sight

“A great man will permit common people to stand outside his doors, but he will not let them come in and make noise in his closet or bedroom when he deliberately retires from all worldly business.  So a well-tempered spirit may enquire after things outside in the world, and suffer some ordinary cares and fears to break into the suburbs of the soul, so as to touch lightly upon the thoughts.  Yet it will not on any account allow an intrusion into the private room, which should be wholly reserved for Jesus Christ as his inward temple.”—Jeremiah Burroughs, The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment
