“And they sang a new song, saying: ‘You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation.'” Revelation 5:9

In heaven, the saints have a full sense of their great deliverance, together with a perfect knowledge of sin, far beyond anything we now conceive of it; and the glory of redeeming grace will be the eternal ground of their love and adoration.

On earth, it is the great exercise and difficult work of faith to see sin and Christ at the same time, or be penetrated with a lively sense of our  absolute freedom from condemnation.

But the more we know of both, the nearer approach we shall make to heaven. And we are our own greatest enemies, if, together with the fullest comprehension of sin and the deepest humiliation for it, we do not look steadfastly unto Jesus and see it taken away by the Lamb of God. This, though continually repeated by the heavenly choir, is called their new song; because it is a great joy to them as if they had never sung it before; and because the love of God and of Christ in their redemption is always opening upon them with new and increasing wonders.

O my soul, let nothing hinder you from beginning it now! Sing, sing to Jesus with heart and voice, and so do honor to His blood!

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.
