13. He liveth upon God and heaven as the end, reward, and

motive of his life

193

14. He counteth no cost or pains too great for the obtaining

it, and hath nothing so dear which he cannot part with

for it

195

15. He is daily exercised in the practice of self-denial, as

(next to the love of God) the second half of his religion 198

16. He hath mortified his fleshly desires, and so far mastereth

his senses and appetite, that they make not his obedience

very uneasy or uneven

• 203

17. He preferreth the means of his holiness and happiness in-

comparably before all provisions and pleasures of the flesh 205

18. He is crucified to the world, and the world to him by the

cross of Christ, and contemneth it through the belief of

the greater things of the life to come

208

19. He foreseeth the end in all his ways, and judgeth of all

things as they will appear at last

211

20. He liveth upon God alone, and is content with his favour

and approbation, without the approbation and favour of

215

21. He hath absolutely devoted himself, and all that he hath,

to God, to be used according to his will

217

22. He hath a readiness to obey, and a quick and pleasant

compliance of his will to the will of God.

219

23. He delighteth himself more in God, and heaven, and

Christ, and holiness, than in all the world: religion is

pot tedious and grievous to him

221

24. He is conscious of his own sincerity, and assured of his

justification, and title to everlasting joys .

228

25. This assurance doth not make him more careless and

remiss, bụt increaseth his love and holy diligence . . . 230

26. Yet he abhorreth pride as the first-born of the devil, and

is very low and vile in his own eyes, and can easily en-

dure to be low and vile in the eyes of others

231

27. Being acquainted with the deceitfulness of the heart, and

the methods of temptation, he liveth as among snares,

and enemies, and dangers, in a constant watch ; and can

conquer many, and subtle, and great temptations, through

grace
