“While the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.” Matthew 25:5

O that I may be roused out of my slumber, and be watchful and ready for the coming of my Bridegroom! How many are there that set out, in good earnest, in their way to Heaven, and run well for some time — but at last are lulled to rest and entangled again with a false notion of liberty! Even the wise virgins fell asleep.

Let this be a warning to me, O Lord! Set a guard before my eyes, ears, and other faculties — lest the world should again enter through these avenues to the heart. If the spark is not speedily extinguished — it will soon break out into a flame; thus sin is of a progressive nature, and its venom spreads quickly and very wide unless it is stopped and opposed in time.

Watch, therefore, over this unsteady heart of mine, O Keeper of Israel, that as soon as it begins to wander from You, I may be alarmed and may flee from sin as from a serpent! Give me grace to look upon every hour as my last, so that, being ever wisely upon my guard — I may meet You with joy when my time is run out, whenever it shall please You to call me hence.

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.
