A VAST DIFFERENCE

2Corinthians 13:5a

Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Prove yourselves.

(cf. Philippians 2:12-13 & 2 Peter 1:10)

 

A Vast Difference

 

● Between being sorry for sin and sorry you are “caught.”

 

● Between confessing your sins and confessing some other fellow’s.

 

● Between seeing your own faults and seeing some other person’s.

 

● Between conversion of the head and conversion of the heart.

 

● Between being led by the Holy Spirit and being led by your own imagination.

 

● Between being persecuted for “righteousness’ sake” and being persecuted for “foolishness sake.”

 

● Between “contending for the faith” and striving for your own opinions.

  2. The one about the imagination is the one I have to guard against the most. I have a very vivid imagination!

  3. The last one is my bugaboo. It is always in the back of my mind.
