The minister’s stock-taking



The minister’s stock-taking

‘And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not.’
 Acts 28:24

Suggested Further Reading: 
John 3:16–18

There has never been a cross-breed between a believer and an unbeliever. 
A man must be either dead or alive. 
There is no neutral ground. You must either be on one side with those who are alive, or on the other side with those who are dead and need to be quickened. 

Think not to halt between two opinions. 
For the most part those who are said to be halting between two opinions are really of one opinion; they do not intend to serve the Lord, and they say in their hearts, ‘Who is the Lord that I should serve him?’ Now will you do me this favour? I asked it once, and it was blessed to the conversion of several. 

Will you take a little time alone, perhaps this evening; take a paper and pencil, and after you have honestly and fairly thought on your own state, and weighed your own condition before the Lord, will you write down one of two words: if you feel that you are not a believer write down this word—‘Condemned,’ and if you are a believer in Jesus, and put your trust in him alone, write down the word ‘Forgiven.’ 

Do it, even though you have to write down the word ‘Condemned.’ We lately received into church-fellowship a young man, who said, ‘Sir, I wrote down the word ‘Condemned’, and I looked at it; there it was; I had written it myself—‘Condemned’.’

 As he looked the tears began to flow, and the heart began to break; and before long he fled to Christ, put the paper in the fire, and wrote down ‘Forgiven.’ 

This young man was about the sixth who had been brought to the Lord in the same way. So I pray you try it, and God may bless it to you.

For meditation: 

What is suggested is not a little game, but a matter of spiritual life and death. 
Are you prepared to examine yourself in this way (2 Corinthians 13:5) and to let God examine you and show you your real spiritual position (Psalm 26:2)?

‘The love of Jesus, what it is—none but his loved ones know.’


‘The love of Jesus, what it is—none but his loved ones know.’

‘And to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge.’ Ephesians 3:19

Suggested Further Reading: 
2 Thessalonians 2:16–3:5

An increase of love, a more perfect apprehension of Christ’s love is one of the best and most infallible gauges whereby we may test ourselves whether we have grown in grace or not. 

If we have grown in grace, it is absolutely certain that we shall have advanced in our knowledge and reciprocation of the love of Christ. Many here present have believed in Jesus, and they do know the love of Jesus.

 But they know it not as some others here do, who have gone into the inner chamber, and have been made to drink of the spiced wine of Christ’s pomegranate.

 Some of you have begun to climb the mountain, and the view which lies at your feet is lovely and passing fair, but the landscape is not such as would greet your eyes if you could but stand where advanced saints are standing now, and could look to the east and to the west, to the north and to the south, and see all the lengths and breadths, and depths and heights, of ‘the love of Christ which passeth knowledge.’ 

To change the figure: the love of Christ is comparable with Jacob’s ladder; some of us are standing on the lower rungs, and there are others who are ascending and who rest half way; others still are getting up so high that we can scarce see them by reason of the dimness of our sight; and there are some, perhaps, at this hour, who have just reached the topmost rung of this knowledge, and are now stepping as it were into the arms of Christ who awaits them at the top; they have attained unto their perfection. 

Here they shall find repose. They shall rest in his love, and with the eternal songs of heaven they shall rejoice for ever and for ever.

For meditation:

 A realisation of Christ’s love towards us should affect us inwardly (Romans 5:5; 2 Corinthians 5:14) and outwardly (John 13:34; 15:12; Ephesians 5:2; 1 John 4:11). Is this increasingly the case with you?
