I might here also further seasonably observe, that God will make use of ourselves in our passage to heaven. But does not belief shape character? Well, then, if such be the fact — if, through our necessary connection with numbers of our fellow-men, a connection resulting from the circumstances of our nature — if, through the giving evil counsel, which it seems almost impossible to avoid, and through the setting evil example, which must be done in some sense by all but the perfect — if in these ways we become partakers in other men's sins — better fly the world at once; better retire to the desert, where, altogether separated from our kind, we should at least have no guilt to add to our own!

He would also expect to have an interchange of feeling on the sublimest and most interesting of all subjects, relative to the redemption of the world by the Lord Jesus Christ, and to find in the hearts of all in that family a response to what he felt in his own, in reference to the progress then making or made of the gospel in the world by the instrumentality of his fellow apostles; and thus heart would kindle heart, and Christian, holy fellowship would produce joy with which a stranger to such themes could never intermeddle.2.

In theory it certainly may be so. Let religious teachers often show to the young the perils and responsibilities of mixing up in unchristian and immoral society.(T. "Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God." Repentance, for the most part, is utterly unavailing; the author may become altogether a reformed man, being changed from the infidel into the sincere believer, and from the immoral into the righteous; but he may have no power whatsoever of recalling his writings: they have gone forth as upon wings to the farthest ends of the earth.

AT THE OTHER EXTREME THERE IS THE EQUAL, PERHAPS THE MORE COMMON FAULT OF HANGING BACK, AND SO, AS THE APOSTLE TEACHES, GRADUALLY LETTING SLIP AND LOSING EVERY BENEFICENT TRUTH AND EVERY HOLY PRIVILEGE WE HAVE GAINED.

The great use which we make of this subject of discourse is the furnishing another motive to you to the walking circumspectly and the living righteously.(H. II. In the natural world there are living creatures that have no vertebrae, and they consist of a soft gelatinous mass, very yielding and compressible. This view of election is in harmony with human liberty and responsibility. That was his theology — to burn for Christ, to be faithful unto death. For is it not the case that we are influenced by the words we speak?(T. Thirdly, add to this the extent of it, and that which goes along with it, for if we lose our work there is somewhat more lost besides that, as is implied afterwards; and that is of yourselves, "it is unprofitable for you" (Hebrews 13:17). At first he says, "Look to yourselves"; but he adds, "that we lose not the things which we have wrought."
