Alistair Begg gives us gentle warning this morning. It is good to heed his superlative advice.
You can read Be Careful, by Alistair Begg at One Place
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall.
1 Corinthians 10:12
Sustain me according to Your word, that I may live; And do not let me be ashamed of my hope.
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy,
"It is a curious fact that there is such a thing as being proud of grace. A man says, "I have great faith--I shall not fall; poor little faith may, but I never shall." "I have fervent love," says another. "I can stand; there is no danger of my going astray." He who boasts of grace has little grace to boast of.
"...Pay attention that you do not glory in your graces, but let all your glorying and confidence be in Christ and His strength, for only in this way can you be kept from falling. Be much more diligent in prayer. Spend longer time in holy adoration.
"Read the Scriptures more earnestly and constantly. Watch your lives more carefully. Live nearer to God. Take the best examples for your pattern. Let your conversation be full of heaven."
