“I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood.” Galatians 1:16

“Not lagging in diligence.” Romans 12:11

The speediest and easiest method to accomplish our desire of overcoming what is evil and doing what is good is immediate compliance with our first convictions, without conferring with flesh and blood. If we delay the work, we give-room to fellow-sinners from without, and to Satan, and to our depraved hearts from within, to persuade us to the contrary; by which the flesh can easily renew its strength and the spirit will be weakened.

And what will be the consequence of this but that either we miscarry in our design, or that the conflict will be afterward so much sharper and the good work, if not stifled, dropped entirely. And if it is done, it will not be done so completely and with such singleness of heart as it should be. If we narrowly watch our hearts and directly engage with every the least opposition when it stirs, then our enemies will not be so strong, and we shall have no reason to despair.

O for grace promptly to carry out one’s convictions! Lord, preserve me from consulting nature or feeling, instead of Your word and will!

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.
