EDITOR’S NOTE:

My great-grandfather used “professor” in a way which has fallen out of common use in my generation.  He referred to

professors of religion,

meaning those who profess a certain religion, not one who teaches religion at an institution of post-secondary education.

“He that doeth righteousness is righteous.”–1 Jno. 3, 7

I.

All religion issues in conduct.  When explicit professors of religion to live accordingly. as does God.

II.

“Keep them from the evil.”  This is negative but very important.  He came to save us from our sins.  “One that feareth God and escheweth evil?”  Job 1, 8

III.

Loves men.  This is identical with love of God.  “He that loveth God, loves his brother also.”

“He that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?”  1 Jno. 4, 20

IV.

Doing good.  This is the practical expression of love.

1.  Kind in our general attitude toward men–not critical, cold, harsh, but gentle and wishing all men well.

2.   Charitable toward others.  Ready to minister to their needs as we are able.  It is a great grace.  We can’t do all that is needed, but we can do something and that will help them and us.

Men rightly judge us more by what we do than by our profession.
