“By this all will know that you are My disciples — if you have love for one another.” John 13:35

“Bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace…. do not let the sun go down on your anger…. And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:2, 3, 26, 32

Humble Christians never affect singularity, nor set up extraordinary claims. They rather study to be of one mind and strive not about words or places of distinction, lest the general harmony existing among them and the edification of souls, should be hindered. Whoever judges and blames everything on others, and can never agree or join in devotion with other experienced Christians — is puffed up with self-conceit, and is in the way to make a dangerous shipwreck; for “pride comes before a fall.”

Believer, cultivate humility. Take your place at the feet of Jesus, and learn of Him. He sets for you — an example of love, patience, forbearance, long-suffering, and readiness to forgive. Remember, if you trust in His finished work for acceptance with God — you are bound to copy His example in your dealings with men. If you know these things — happy are you if you do them. Practical conformity to the life of Christ is the best proof that we have the Spirit of 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.
