I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get." Luke 18:12Take heed of trusting in religious duties. These duties rested in, will as eternally undo a man--as the greatest and foulest enormities. Open wickedness slays her thousands--but a secret resting upon duties slays her ten thousands! Open profaneness is the broad dirty way which leads to hell--but trusting in religious duties is a sure way, though a cleaner way to hell. Profane people and formal professors shall meet at last in the same hell. You know, in Noah's flood all that were not in the ark, though they climbed up the tallest trees, and the highest mountains and hills--yet were drowned! So let men climb up to this duty and that--yet, if they don't get into Christ, they will be damned! It is as natural to a man to rest in his duties, as it is for him to rest in his bed. It is not your duties, but your Christ, that must save you. Many shining professors burn themselves by resting in their duties and services.Oh, rest not on anything but Jesus Christ! It is His free grace, it is His special mercy, it is His infinite love--which is your resting-place! It is the bosom of Christ, the favor of Christ, the satisfaction of Christ, and the pure, perfect, spotless, matchless, and glorious righteousness of Christ--which is your resting-place!It was the saying of a precious saint, that "He was more afraid of his religious duties, than of his sins. For his duties often made him proud; his sins always made him humble."
Mic 7:5 Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. Mic 7:6 For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man's enemies [are] the men of his own house. Mic 7:7 Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. Mic 7:8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD [shall be] a light unto me. Mic 7:9 I will bear the indignation of the LORD, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, [and] I shall behold his righteousness.
