Resolved, constantly, with the utmost niceness and diligence, and the strictness scrutiny, to be looking into the state of my soul, that I may know whether I truly have an interest in Christ or no; that when I come to die, I may not have any negligence respecting this to repent of.
I just have one question from this for you today. Do you do this? Do you examine yourself to see if you truly are in Christ or not? This is Edwards desire in this resolution. Is he just trying to be super spiritual? No, he is trying to be Biblical, and I think you should as well.
We all must both be challenged and put into practice 2 Corinthians 13:5,“Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves. Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you–unless indeed you fail the test?”
