“What things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him.” Philippians 3:7-9

This was the life and constant mind of Saint Paul. The expressions “in Him,” “in Christ,” “in the Lord,” occur in his writings continually. I choose them also for my staff and my song in the wilderness. They direct me to my Great Tower, my Strong Fortress, my Sweet Paradise, my only Element and Life.

Here may I take up my abode forever; and may the Lord keep me steadfast. “It is good for us to be here,” for this is Pisgah, the mount of the Lord, where Jesus being transfigured, reveals His glory to His disciples. Here we should build our tabernacle, and here may death find me at last.

In Christ we are justified from all charges, are entitled to all blessings, may claim all the promises, and are safe at all times and under all circumstances. To be in Christ is true dignity and eternal security.

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.
