What Follows Us.

What Follows Us
"Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life." 
(Psalm 23:6)

A devout poet sings
Lord, when thou
Puttest in my time a day,
as thou dost now,
Unknown in other years, grant, I entreat,
Such grace illumine it, that whate'er its phase
It add to holiness, and lengthen praise!
 Up till now goodness and mercy, like two guards, have followed us from day to day,
 bringing up the rear even as grace leads the van; and as this out-of-the-way day is one of the days of our life, the two guardian angels will be with us today also. 

Goodness to supply our needs and mercy to blot out our sins -- these twain shall attend our every step this day and every day till days shall be no more. 
Wherefore, let us serve the Lord on this peculiar day with special consecration of heart and sing His praises with more zest and sweetness than ever. Could we not today make an unusual offering to the cause of God or to the poor? By inventiveness of love let us make this day to be remembered forever.

You Deal with God

You Deal with God
"I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger, 
I will not return to destroy Ephraim: for I am God, and not man." 
(Hosea 11:9)
The Lord thus makes known His sparing mercies. 
It may be that the reader is now under heavy displeasure, 
and everything threatens his speedy doom.
 Let the text holds him up from despair. 

The Lord now invites you to consider your ways and confess your sins. 
If He had been man, He would long ago have cut you off.
 If He were now to act after the manner of men,
 it would be a word and a blow and then there would be an end of you:
but it is not so, for "as high as the heavens are above the earth, 
so high are his ways above your ways."

You rightly judge that He is angry, 
but He keepeth not His anger forever: 
if you turn from sin to Jesus, 
God will turn from wrath. 
Because God is God, and not man, 
there is still forgiveness for you, 
even though you may be steeped up to your throat in iniquity. 

You have a God to deal with and not a hard man, or even a merely just man. 
No human being could have patience with you. 
You would have wearied out an angel, 
as you have wearied your sorrowing Father; but God is longsuffering. 
Come and try Him at once. 
Confess, believe, and turn from your evil way, and you shall be saved.

A Constant Witness

A Constant Witness
"For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard." 
(Acts 22:15)

Paul was chosen to see and hear the Lord speaking to him out of heaven.
This divine election was a high privilege for himself;
but it was not intended to end with him;
 it was meant to have an influence upon others,
yea, upon all men.
It is to Paul that Europe owes the gospel at this hour.

It is ours in our measure to be witnesses of that which the Lord has revealed to us,
and it is at our peril that we hide the precious revelation.
First, we must see and hear,
or we shall have nothing to tell;
but when we have done so,
 we must be eager to bear our testimony.
 It must be personal: "Thou shalt be."

It must be for Christ: "Thou shalt be his witness."
It must be constant and all absorbing;
 we are to be this above all other things and to the exclusion of many other matters.
 Our witness must not be to a select few who will cheerfully receive us but to "all men" -- to all whom we can reach,
young or old, rich or poor, good or bad.
 We must never be silent like those who are possessed by a dumb spirit;
for the text before us is a command,
and a promise, and we must not miss it -- "Thou shalt be his witness."
"Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord."
 (Isaiah 43:12)
Lord, fulfill this word to me, also!

 He is the #1 in my life and the most important, the purpose of my life is for HIM to increase in every single way that I can share the pure Gospel and I'm certain that HIS Word never comes back void. 
Isaiah 55:11 King James Version (KJV)
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:
 it shall not return unto me void, 
but it shall accomplish that which I please, 
and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
