“Abide in Me.” John 15:4

“Lord, to whom shall we go? You alone have the words of eternal life.” John 6:68

“It is good for me to draw near to God. I have put my trust in the Lord God.” Psalm 73:28

To abide in Christ, who is our righteousness and strength, and not to be moved from Him — is the very life and power of Christianity. We are in this happy state, when our thoughts are going out after Him, our hearts cleaving to Him, and our minds staying upon Him. To know Christ, and thus to abide in Him as our righteousness — brings peace and joy; this joy in the Lord is certainly followed with strength to overcome sin and the world, which believers renounce the more readily, as they have found something better in Christ.

Satan is violently opposed to this, and therefore tries by all means to allure or drive us away from Christ. Consequently, watchfulness and prayer are daily necessary, lest we should be led away by his wiles.

Simple believers look to Christ for all, go to Christ with all, and depend on Christ through all — thus they abide in Jesus, and Jesus abides in them. May the Lord give me grace, likewise, immovably to abide in Him; then shall I conquer sin, overcome the world, and always triumph in Christ.

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.
