Loyalty to Christ

Above:  Part of the Original Text

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

John 14, 15 and 2 Cor. 14 & 15

1.  To love him is God’s command.  “Because he first loved us.”  How can we love another when it was for he died?

2.  Our highest interests and happiness are wrapped up in his cause.  It is for our good [that] the gospel and the church are given.  Happy for us if we fully appreciate these things.

3.  “Abstain from all appearance of evil.”  Turn from sin as our foe.  He is concerned to save us from it.  Life like he desires we should.

4.  Identify your life with its cause.  Devote your powers to the establishment of righteousness in the earth.  Be loyal to him in loving service.  he must work through men.  Can he depend on us and use us?

5.  His love constrains us thus to live.  May his love abide and abound in all our hearts and ever prompt our hearts to live only for him.
