The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ
And the love of God
And the fellowship of The Holy Spirit
Be with us all evermore
You must do what the word tells you, and not just listen to it and deceive yourselves. But the man who looks steadily at the perfect law of freedom and makes that his habit – not listening and then forgetting, but actively putting it into practice – will be happy in all that he does.
A Thought for Today
Let us go out to meet him with contrite and expectant hearts; and though he delays his coming, let us watch for him in the cold and dreariness which must one day have an end. Attend his summons we must, at any rate, when he strips us of the body; let us anticipate, by a voluntary act, what will one day come on us of necessity. Let us wait for him solemnly, fearfully, hopefully, patiently, obediently; let us be resigned to his will, while active in good works. Let us pray him ever, to “remember us when he cometh in his kingdom”; to remember all our friends; to remember our enemies; and to visit us according to his mercy here, that he may reward us according to his righteousness hereafter.
