ourselves_o for_o his_o sake_n he_o that_o love_v his_o estate_n more_o than_o christ_n can_v be_v willing_a to_o part_v with_o his_o estate_n for_o christ_n he_o that_o love_v his_o life_n more_o than_o christ_n can_v be_v willing_a to_o lay_v down_o his_o life_n for_o christ_n thus_o we_o can_v be_v no_o more_o sound_a in_o the_o point_n of_o self-denial_n than_o we_o be_v in_o our_o love_n to_o god_n and_o jesus_n christ_n 4._o true_a self-denial_n be_v ever_o join_v with_o a_o humble_a frame_n of_o heart_n as_o the_o apostle_n paul_n though_o he_o be_v in_o nothing_o behind_o the_o

in_o a_o way_n injurious_a to_o the_o honour_n of_o god_n 5._o self-denial_n will_v teach_v we_o to_o subject_v our_o mind_n and_o judgement_n to_o the_o sentence_n of_o the_o word_n it_o be_v not_o

the_o word_n of_o faith_n which_o be_v indeed_o most_o reasonable_a self-denial_n will_v take_v a_o man_n off_o from_o self-conceitedness_a from_o be_v wed_v to_o his_o own_o opinion_n self-denial_n will_v be_v pull_v down_o strong_a hold_n of_o carnal_a reason_n with_o every_o high_a thing_n that_o exalt_v itself_o against_o the_o knowledge_n of_o god_n as_o the_o apostle_n say_v we_o can_v do_v

have_v be_v for_o it_o yet_o once_o see_v it_o disagreeable_a to_o god_n word_n he_o dare_v no_o long_o own_v it_o as_o we_o will_v not_o reject_v and_o deny_v christ_n as_o teacher_n and_o prophet_n we_o must_v be_v willing_a to_o learn_v of_o he_o we_o must_v be_v ready_a to_o hear_v he_o in_o all_o he_o have_v to_o say_v to_o we_o act_n 3.22_o he_o shall_v you_o hear_v in_o all_o thing_n
