“Not to be soon shaken in mind.” 2 Thessalonians 2:2

“I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” 1 Corinthians 2:2

“In whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Colossians 2:3

O my blessed Savior, enable me to rest humbly and quietly in You, avoiding all such novelties as might breed presumption, distract my thoughts, and cause my heart to swerve from You. Whoever has tasted the sweetness of Your Word will be satisfied with it; and better it is to improve in the life of faith and power of godliness, than in new words, forms, and professions.

May the Lord quicken me by the truths that have been established of old and humble my heart evermore, so that I may receive them better and abide in that which I have heard from the beginning! Novelty often proves the bane of souls and is always calculated to unsettle and distract them. It is work enough for the meek and quiet to keep within the bounds divinely prescribed and effectually to center in God. How can such enjoy true rest who, from a vain curiosity to know everything, are continually longing to hear new doctrines?

Lord, save me from this mental fluctuation, and make me determined to know nothing but Jesus Christ and Him crucified. My soul, let God’s word alone be your guide and directory, and beware of “lo here” and “lo there.”

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.
