18. In that he himself hath suffered, being tempted, he
is able to succor them that are tempted. HEB. 2:18.
How bitter that cup,
No heart can conceive,
Which he drank quite up,
That sinners might live:
His way was much rougher
And darker than mine;
Did Jesus thus suffer
And shall I repine?
If any man will come after me, let him
deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me. MATT. 16:24.
19. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure
to give you the kingdom. LUKE 12:32.
In the floods of tribulation,
While the billows o’er me roll;
Jesus whispers consolation,
And supports my fainting soul.
Seek not what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of
doubtful mind; rather seek ye the kingdom of God, and all these things
shall be added unto you. LUKE 12:29, 31.
20. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life. JOHN 3:36.
No more, my God, I boast no more
Of all the duties I have done;
I quit the hopes I held before,
To trust the merits of thy Son.
He that believeth not the Son shall not see light;
but the wrath of God abideth on him. JOHN 3:36.
