“You pushed me violently, that I might fall — but the LORD helped me.” Psalm 118:13

“Called … and preserved in Jesus Christ.” Jude 1:1

  • Jesus was in the council, undertook our cause, struck hands in the covenant as our Surety.
  • He wrought out a righteousness for us.
  • He suffered on the tree to redeem us, ever lives, and ever loves, and ever pleads our cause.
  • He represents our persons before the infinitely just and righteous Jehovah.
  • His Father and our Father is now well-pleased with us because we are accepted and preserved in the Beloved.

Are these things so? And has the Lord the Spirit, the glorifier of Jesus, enlightened our understandings to see these things, enabled us to believe, and assured our hearts of our own happy share and interest in them?

0, my soul, stop, reflect, dwell on such wonderful power, distinguishing love, and appropriated mercy! Now let all my enemies exert their utmost power. I will not be afraid.

  • Afflictions, pains, temptations may await me.
  • Waves and storms may go over my head.
  • Satan may sift me as wheat.
  • The waters of death may prove bitter to my taste.

Yet will I not be discouraged.

  • He who died for me will care for me.
  • He who pardoned my aggravated offenses will heal my infirmities.
  • He who knew the power of temptation will support and deliver me out of all.

This I believe. Lord, help my unbelief.

The wisdom, the power, the love, the promise, the covenant, and the oath of Jehovah stand all engaged for the preservation of a poor unworthy believer of Jesus. Alleluia.

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.
