Learning Our Duty

It is our (Christians) duty to learn Christ, not just to know facts about Him, but to learn Him.

"Christians hear much but, it is to be feared, learn little."

What is it, then, to learn Christ?

1. To learn Christ is to be made like Christ (2 Corinthians 3:18).
2. To learn Christ is to believe in Him as "my Lord and my God" (John 20:28).
3. To learn Christ is to live Christ (Philippians 1:27).

"A man may know much of Christ... A man may preach Christ... A man may profess Christ... [but] There are many professors in the world whom Christ will profess against."
