“The Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought — but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us.” Romans 8:26

“God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” God has many worshipers on particular occasions who cannot be called spiritual worshipers. Take, for instance, the prayers of wicked men under their convictions or their fears, troubles, and dangers, and compare them with the prayers of believers. The former are merely an outcry that distressed nature makes to the God of nature, considering Him only as such; but the latter are the voice of the Spirit of adoption, addressing itself in the hearts of believers unto God as a Father.

Woe to professors of the gospel, who shall be seduced to believe that all they have to do with God consists in their attention to moral virtue. It is fit for them so to do, who, being weary of Christianity, have a mind to turn pagans — but “Our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ,” under the promised workings and intercession of the Spirit. For by them alone are the love of the Father and the fruits of the mediation of the Son communicated unto us, without which we have no interest or comfort in them. And by the influences of the Spirit alone we are enabled to make any acceptable returns of obedience to God. To exclude the internal operations of the Holy Spirit is to destroy the gospel.

Holy Spirit, daily help my infirmities and make intercession in my soul!

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.
