II Peter 1:10
In Second Peter 1:10 God's Word says, "Give diligence
to make your calling and election sure." I lift out of
that text two words: MAKE SURE. MAKE SURE that you are
saved. MAKE SURE that you are a child of God.
Constantly check up. Constantly stay in assurance.
Constantly abide in the fact of your own salvation.
Make that clear above everything else---that you are a

that place. A life was LOST there, we say.
The other day I was riding along with one of my
friends. We were doing some visiting. He pointed over
