Despise Not the Day of Small Things

zechariah410

I thought I’d dedicate this post to the building up of the Saints. A while back I linked to the MLJ Trust where there is 1600 sermons from the great Martyn Lloyd Jones that you can download and listen for free.

Given that these are indeed evil days its easy to become discouraged or slip from self examination into self accusation whereby the devices of the Devil often work overtime.

In this sermon called Discouragment Martyn Lloyd Jones offers the following points for examination;

  • The problem of discouragement
  • The danger of introspection and self-examination
  • The importance of realising the truth of salvation by faith
  • Consciousness of a lack of progress
  • The importance of being ourselves
  • Days of discouragement for the Church
  • The condition of weariness and tiredness

There’s also a good bit of advice about Zechariah 4:10 whereby we’re urged to despise not the day of small things/beginnings.
