The Test Of Our Profession

“If there was a drawn sword pointed to my breast and Christ at the other end of it, if I had no other way to be at Him and with Him, I would run myself upon it to be at Him and with Him forever: for He is my life, my heaven, and my all.” – Rev. Thomas Hog

(The test of our profession is the value, worth and preciousness of the Lord Jesus Christ to us. The mere professor would feel happy in heaven even if Christ is not there, whereas the true believer would rather suffer the torments of hell with Christ than be in heaven without Him. Christ is the greatest treasure of the true believer’s heart.)

“If anyone does not love the Lord, he is to be accursed. Maranatha.” – 1 Corinthians 16:22 (NASB)
