Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards: #48

48. Resolved, constantly, with the utmost niceness and diligence, and the strictest scrutiny, to be looking into the state of my soul, that I may know whether I have truly an interest in Christ or no; that when I come to die, I may not have any negligence respecting this to repent of. May 26, 1723.

Looking into my own heart has been something that I started learning to do and is one of the most fearful thing to do. Yet, as I discover the dark secrets and sins in my own heart, I see love and grace of my Lord more intensely, for He knew all this from the beginning, and He made Himself nothing, and bore my sin, this filthy heart that I may be forgiven of my sins, receive His perfect righteousness, and reconciled with God our Father. O how glorious is His love?

Comment spammers

I just spent about 15 minutes removing comments on this blog that were spams. And I did this kind of comment cleaning few times in this month alone.
From now on, you will have to do an image validation to post a comment on this blog. Hopefully it won't cause too much trouble for all of us. Oh, well, except for those spammers of course.

Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards: #47

47. Resolved, to endeavor to my utmost to deny whatever is not most agreeable to a good, and universally sweet and benevolent, quiet, peaceable, contented, easy, compassionate, generous, humble, meek, modest, submissive, obliging, diligent and industrious, charitable, even, patient, moderate, forgiving, sincere temper; and to do at all times what such a temper would lead me to. Examine strictly every week, whether I have done so. Sabbath morning. May 5,1723.
