Preparation for revival.

Preparation for revival

‘Can two walk together, except they be agreed?’
 Amos 3:3

Suggested Further Reading:

 1 John 2:15–17

Am I guilty of worldliness? 
This is the crying sin of many in the Christian church. 

Do I put myself into association with men who cannot by any possibility profit me? 
Am I seen where my Master would not go?

Do I love amusements which cannot afford me comfort when I reflect upon them, and which I would never indulge in, if I thought that Christ would come while I was at them? 

Am I worldly in spirit as to fashion?
 Am I as showy, as volatile, as frivolous as men and women of the world? 

If so, if I love the world, the love of the Father is not in me; consequently he cannot walk with me, for we are not agreed.

Again, am I covetous? 
Do I scrape and grind? 
Is my first thought, not how I can honor God, but how I can accumulate wealth?
 When I gain wealth, do I forget to make use of it as a steward? 

If so, then God is not agreed with me; I am a thief with his substance; I have set myself up for a master instead of being a servant, and God will not walk with me till I begin to feel that this is not my own, but his, and that I must use it in his fear.

Again, am I of an angry spirit? 
Am I harsh towards my brethren? 
Do I cherish envy towards those who are better than myself, or contempt towards those who are worse off?

 If so, God cannot walk with me, for he hates envy, and all contempt of the poor is abhorrent to him. 

Is there any lust in me? 
Do I indulge the flesh?
 Am I fond of carnal indulgences by which my soul suffers? 

If so, God will not walk with me; for chambering, and wantonness, and gluttony, and drunkenness, separate between a believer and his God: these things are not convenient to a Christian.

For meditation: 

We must not be in agreement with the things which God hates, if he is going to keep his promise to walk with us; we must practice separation from such things (2 Corinthians 6:14–18). 

The Christian is not supposed to walk in the darkness, but as the Lord walked—in the light (1 John 1:6–7; 2:6,11).

Sermon no. 597
30 October (1864)

 “The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, 
not in its fashion and manner, but in the truth which it contains.
