“Alleluia!” Revelation 19:1

You began the year, O my soul, with “Hosanna,” imploring the Lord’s blessing; can you now conclude it with an “Alleluia”?

Take a review of the year past. Have you not had many mercies? Have not the eyes of the Lord been upon you for good from the beginning of the year to the end thereof? Has He not conducted you through many seen, and many more unseen dangers? Can you not with truth, as well as gratitude, set up your Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far has the Lord helped me”?

If you have not been so fruitful in good works as might have been expected, is your Lord to blame, or yourself? Whatever good has been done in you or by you surely belongs to the favor of God; and whatever has caused shame or humiliation is nowhere chargeable but upon yourself.

Praise the Lord, then, “O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you [year after year] with loving-kindness and tender mercies.” And may I be crowned at length with everlasting glory. You will soon, O my soul, enter upon another year. Let dear-bought experience teach you to avoid all occasions of evil and keep you close to your God. If you live to see another day, set out afresh and remember to offer the daily sacrifice of obedience as well as of praise to your gracious God.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
