    For this particular relation of God’s fatherhood to us showeth that God taketh an especial care of us, to whom the promise of God’s care especially belongeth. 4. It doth much uphold us in all distresses. 5. It strengtheneth our faith in all the properties and works of God. 6. It affordeth much comfort against our manifold infirmities. 7. (a) Worldly-mindedness and love of pleasure and ease. (b) Pride. Vanity. Taking more trouble to adorn the body than the soul when going to Meetings. Thinking more about what men will say of you, more about outward appearances than about God and the appearance of the soul. (c) Envying the talents, gifts, and graces of others.

    H Aving written here of a subject that nearly concerneth you, I have thought it my duty to give you a place, and according to your Dignity, the first place in the Application of it. Of which I shall first tender you my Reasons, and then set before you the matter of this address. 1. You are among us the most eminent and honoured per∣sons, and therefore not to be neglected and past by: you . Do the duty that lies nearest thee. It scatters doubt; overcomes opposition; breaks up despair. The Almighty takes care of His reserves. We want the inspiration of this better faith. Consider two facts--I. The inroads of a subtle and popular worldly-mindedness, weakening the Church deplorably in its conscience and its heart.

    Some, I saw, have a prejudice against our rulers and laws; but if it was not for la w, this world would be in an awful condition. God restrains our rulers, for the hearts of a ll are in his hands. So great was the interest to obtain the book, that many willingly engaged in the work of transcribing it, but it was with difficulty that the copyists could supply the demand. Some of the more wealthy purchasers desired the whole Bible. Others bought only a portion. In many cases, several families united to purchase a copy.

Chapter 6. Christ having, in the former chapter, armed his disciples against the corrupt doctrines and opinions of the scribes and Pharisees, especially in their expositions of the law (that was called their leaven, ), comes in this chapter to warn them against their corrupt practices, against the two sins which, though in their doctrine they did not justify, yet in their conversation.

The book therefore covers a period of some forty years. David was the real founder of the monarchy, the reorganizer of Israel’s religious worship, the preeminent hero, ruler and poet of his people. David’s great sin, recorded in chap marks the sad divide, right in the middle of the book and right in the middle of David’s forty year.

We must watch for arguments in prayer. We must watch or suitable praying seasons. We must watch against watchlessness. We must watch for the answers to prayer. Remember Christ's example as he watched in prayer.

Church, in its session of May,on motion of Rev. John T. Jenifer, D.D., and made a guide book for the ministry and laity in said church, and given the sanction of authority by the same, it is just and proper that I should say that the first and second chapters were written.

This is the scripture doctrine.—Several arguments from reason to confirm it.—There is good ground to think that no perceptive being perishes.—It is inconsistent with good administration to suppose it.—The question about our immortality is commonly stated as if we were seeking for some evidence of a particular grant of immortality to man.

Matthew. mat Christ having, in the former chapter, armed his disciples against the corrupt doctrines and opinions of the scribes and Pharisees, especially in their expositions of the law (that was called their leaven, Mat ), comes in this chapter to warn them against their corrupt practices, against the two sins which, though in their doctrine they.

demands of each day as it comes, without worrying about the unknown future and the things which may never happen. THE FOLLY OF WORRY (Matthew continued) Let us now see if we can gather up Jesus' arguments against worry. (i) Worry is needless, useless and even actively injurious.

Worry cannot affect the past, for the past is past. Just as timorous people in a thunderstorm will light a candle that they may not see the lightning, so many Christians have their hearts filled with the twinkling light of some miserable tapers of earthly care and pursuits, which, though they be dim and smoky, are bright enough to make it hard to see the silent depths of heaven, though it blaze.

"The Benefits of an Early Piety " - George Whitefield The amiableness of religion in itself, and the innumerable advantages that flow from it to society in general, as well as to each sincere professor in particular, cannot but recommend it to the choice of every considerate person, and make, even wicked men, as they wish to die the death, so.

Some are specially addicted to pride, and others to worldly–mindedness; some to sensual desires, and others to frowardness or other evil passions.

Now it is our duty to give assistance to all these; and partly by dissuasions, and clear discoveries of the odiousness of the sin, and partly by suitable directions about the remedy, to help them.

Verse 1. Matthew Take heed that ye do not your alms — Your righteousness. Our translators have put alms in the text; but doubting, upon good grounds, whether that was the true reading, they have for alms put in the margin righteousness, that is to say, justice, as it stands in the Vulgate; a reading supported with great authority from manuscripts, and commentaries of.

Now the best remedy against worldly mindedness, is Mortification. O get a chip of Christ’s Cross, Gal. whereby the world will be crucifi’d to you, and you to the world.

So was Paul. As saith one of the Antients, Paul and the world were like two dead bodies, that neither embrace with delight, nor part with grief from each other. Against this objection, if it be made one, I might defend myself by the example of many approved writers, who have treated de officiis hominis et civis, or, as some choose to express it, “of the rights and obligations of man, in his individual and social capacity,” in the same book.

(MatthewMatthew ) III. THE DUTY OF JOINING THANKSGIVING WITH OUR SUPPLICATIONS AND OUR WATCHING, 1.The common objection against the divine laws in general, and the doctrines of the gospel in particular, is, they are not practicable; that they are contrary to flesh and blood; and that all those precepts concerning self-denial, renunciation of and deadness to the world, are but so many arbitrary restraints imposed upon human nature: but when.
