On the whole, let all professing Christians seriously and with great care examine themselves, and inquire whether they be really walking in the narrow way to heaven…

… whether they have skill to discern and distinguish it from all others which have been devised by men, or that can be imagined; whether they know there are the strongest motives and greatest encouragements to work out their own salvation, while they are certain that they are wholly dependent on God for this, and shall do nothing unless he work in them to will and to do; and that by all they do they do not deserve the least favour, but remain as ill-deserving as ever; and find themselves as zealous and as much engaged to do.

Sermon on Philippians 2:12-13
