Bible Study Subject this week: Check yourself before you wreck yourself.
John 10;10 The Mission and his goal. And Philippians 10 sayings for assurance; You , can , Do, all, things, through, Christ, Who , Strength, You.
1st point; John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly: Through the life of Jesus, as through a heavenly portal, men have entered upon true civilization, with its schools, colleges, railroads, telegraph, telephone, and innumerable privileges and liberties.
2nd point; Psalm 1; 1-6 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the (a) counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
Expound: psalms is given to us by the Holy Spirit, to be esteemed as a precious treasure in which all things are contained that bring to true happiness in this present life as well as in the life to come.
3rd point; 1Thess 2 12-19: 12 (10) That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.
(10) To exhort all men diligently and earnestly to lead a godly life.
12; Eph 4:1 I therefore, (1) the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the (a) vocation wherewith ye are called, stay in your lane;
Matt 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the (a) end is not yet. That is, when those things are fulfilled, yet the end will not come.
Today I leave you with assurance; check yourself before you wreck yourself. Every day do a subjective inventory, are you walking upright un-moveable in the sight of Jesus Christ.
Blessed by Jesus many who were not thieves, yet were careless in their duty, and by their neglect the flock was much hurt. Bad principles are the root of bad practices. The Lord Jesus knows whom he has chosen, and is sure of them; they also know whom they have trusted, and are sure of Him. See here the grace of Christ; since none could demand his life of him, he laid it down of himself for our redemption. He offered himself to be the Saviour; Lo, Christ came and offered himself for the Sacrifice. He was both the offerer and the offering, so that his laying down his life was his offering up himself. From hence it is plain, that he died in the place and stead of men; to obtain their being set free from the punishment of sin, to obtain the pardon of their sin; and that his death should obtain that pardon. Our Lord laid not his life down for his doctrine, but for his sheep.
Benediction: V19 Jude 24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, (14) He commends them to the grace of God, declaring sufficiently that it is God only that can give us that constancy which he requires of us.
