“And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin — but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.” Romans 6:13

If God has my members as weapons and instruments in His hands, I shall certainly be able not only to work — but also to conquer, since He understands full well how to manage them. May the Lord give me grace not to wind myself out of His hands. For how can a pen write alone, without being in the hand of a writer?

It is true indeed that it is very hard, nay impossible, to be really good and to do all that is good, if we undertake it alone. But God Himself living and working in us, and we truly delighting in Him, it is very easy and pleasant. Therefore care is to be taken that our hearts may be always the working-place and our members the instruments of God, in which and through which He can perform everything Himself.

In ourselves we are not sufficient so much as to think anything as of ourselves. But we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Union to Christ gives ability, and daily communications from Christ enable us to do the will of God from the heart. Our good is all Divine.

Now God I serve, to Him alone
My thankful homage pay;
My only Master, Christ I own,
And Him will I obey.

Servant of sin too long I was,
But Christ has set me free;
Glory to His victorious grace,
Which freely ransomed me.

Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (16901774)

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.
