“I live by faith in the Son of God.” Galatians 2:20

In spiritual things we are too often living upon self. We seek in frames, forms, creatures, and animal life, that inward peace and that stability of mind which are to be found only in the Redeemer.

Outward duties are well in their places. They are to be performed, but not to be trusted in. They are as the scaffold to the building — a means for carrying on the work — but not the work itself. When favored with the gracious presence of our Lord, they are blessings; without it they are nothing.

The whole dependence must be on Him. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Without Him, prayers, praises, rites, and ordinances are carcasses without a soul. This is the case with every external service apart from a humble dependence on the Holy Spirit. He alone imparts comfort, a firm and lively faith, and a delightful view of that which is behind the veil of outward ordinances (such as no carnal eye can behold). He imparts a purely spiritual discovery of the Lord in His goodness, beauty, grandeur, and glory!

Faith, or confidence in Jesus, brings peace to the conscience, solace to the spirit, and joy to the heart. It brings in constant supplies from Jesus and devotes the heart, the life, and all to Jesus.

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.
