“We make it our aim, whether present or absent — to be well pleasing to Him.” 2 Corinthians 5:9

This indeed is the disposition of a soul espoused to Christ. She has but one care, which is to please Him in all things. And this desire to do His will is, as it were — the ring and seal of her Bridegroom; which she may look upon even in the absence of all spiritual joy as a token for good, that she is His spouse.

Ought not then each day, O my soul, to witness a new recognition of your union to Christ? He is desirous that you should be betrothed unto Him even now and waits only for your consent. Hearken, O daughter; consider, and incline your ear; be no longer married to the world. Forget your own people and your father’s house — and take Him alone for your husband, so shall the King greatly desire your beauty.

Will you give the refusal to this glorious and kind Savior? I hope not. Give the refusal rather to the world, and resolutely say, “It is enough; I have done with you, O poor world; my eyes and my feet shall henceforth only be directed to the blessed and eternal city of the new Jerusalem, where my heavenly Bridegroom resides.”

And O what need have I to be duly prepared, dressed, and beautified for His coming, and the time of His taking me home to Himself! Lord Jesus, keep me longing for Your appearance!

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.
