Edition Description: People say, "I hope I am a Christian; I trust I am." They dare not come out boldly and say I am on the Lord's side. In the 9th chapter of St. John, the man says, "I know that whereas I was blind, I now see;" and so , my friends, it is the privilege of every one to have Christ, and to know we have Him. Some people say, "It is presumption for you to stand up there and say you know you are saved." I say it is presumption for me to stand up here and say I doubt it when God has said it. Shall I doubt God's own word? 'He that believeth in the Lord Jesus Christ shall not perish, but have everlasting life.' Don't you believe it? Don't you believe you have everlasting life? It is the privilege of every child of God here to-day to believe and then know that you have got it. Christ is ours for time and eternity. One thing I know-I cannot speak for others, but I can speak for myself. Make it personal. The next thing after we have been saved is to sit at the feet of Jesus, and learn of Him, as Mary did. There are two lives that Christians lead: one before the world, wherein we manifest God and there is a life that we must live alone with God, and sitting at the feet of Jesus. The longer I live and the older I grow, the more convinced I am that there are times when we must sit quietly at the feet of Jesus, and only let God speak to our souls. Oh, young friend, learn that lesson. It will save you many a painful hour. Just keep quietly alone, and learn of Jesus. You know it is when a man is alone with his wife that he tells her the precious secrets of his soul. It is not when the family are around, or when there is company there. So, when we want to get the secrets of Heaven we want to be alone with Jesus , and listen that He may come and whisper to our souls. The richest hours I have ever had with God have not been in great assemblies like this, but sitting alone at the feet of Jesus- Mr. Moody's New York Sermon
