“Cling to what is good.” Romans 12:9

“Seek those things which are above.” Colossians 1:9

The tendencies of those subjects which we habitually contemplate and the manners of those persons with whom we are familiar, display themselves in our prevailing sentiments and behavior. If we converse much with God and heavenly things, we shall be heavenly-minded. But if we deal much with the world and temporal things, we must be sensual and worldly-minded. Therefore, lift up your heart to God. Lift it hourly up to Him. Though it sinks down often to the earth again — yet the Lord has patience and will as often receive it again. Therefore, raise it up continually and take great care to keep it above, that it may not sink down and be denied with worldly things again. Thus it will be easy to abide in a spiritual frame — but without this care we cannot abide in it at all. A feather easily rises higher and higher when kept above ground — but moves slowly upward when once fallen into the mire. Choose now, which you please. O that I may always choose the best: namely, to cleave unto the Lord, seeking the things which are above.

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.
