Windy Profession And Airy Talk!

John Bunyan 90x115by John Bunyan

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven!” Matthew 5:16

O soul, consider this deeply–it is the life of a Christian which carries more conviction and persuasion than his words. Though, like an angel, you talk of Christ, of the gospel, of the doctrines of grace, and of Heaven–yet, if you indulge devilish tempers, and live under the power of any sinful lusts and passions–you will hereby harden others against the things of God and prevent their setting out in the ways of God. Study and pray to be a consistent walker in the ways of holiness; else, all is but windy profession and airy talk.

O how much harm is done to Christ’s cause–by the unholy walk of many professors!

“For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life!” 1 Thessalonians 4:7
