that is read in .the Gospels of the different accounts of ourBlessed S/lyiour's death and sufferings, there are a great manyincidents from which each person for himself may learn "themind which was in Christ Jesus ;" and if he, in ever so humblea way, endeavours himself to follow that example, then he maybe assured that he is doing a service which will be very highlyacceptable to God. By imitating Christ he does in a way drawnearer unto Him ; and by so doing, by drawing near unto Him,he will be made partaker of those blessing^ which were ever dis-pensed by His gracious Presence wherever He appeared, accord-ing to the need of each; he will most assuredly derive all thatstrength, support, and comfort, which those who approach Himcannot fail of attaining. Following the example of Jesus Christ,and endeavouring to obtain something of that mind which wasin Him, these are points which the devil cannot counterfeit.Wherever, therefore, there is this sincere endeavour, we may besure it is from God ; and so far as we have the fruits of thisspirit in our lives, so far we may trust we are true Christians.But every thing else, such as mere good thoughts, and profes-sions, and confidences, and being much affected by Jesus Christ'slove and sufferings, all these may be delusions of Satan. I willtherefore mention a few things which may serve to show us themind which was in Christ Jesus our Lord ; and if we have anythiog of the same in ourselves, we may have the ine^qpressiblecomfort that the image of Jesus Christ is being formed in us.But if we have not, nor are endeavouring to obtain it, then what«ever our confidences may be, we are none of His, He knows usnot : God sees not on us the mark of His children.ow, we are quite certain that our Blessed Lord must haveknown the full worth of all things, that nothing whatever is worthyof any serious regard but what H^ thought so ; deceive ourselvesas we may, this we can never deny, that nothing can ever betruly valuable to us excepting what Hb thought so. This is ascertain as that there is a sun in the sky.Then consider, that with regard to all the goods of this world.
