    Galatians 5:24
    24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires

    Prayer, Thanksgiving, Praise

    Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. – Phil 4:6-7

    No care but all prayer. No anxiety but much joyful communion with God. Carry your desires to the Lord of your life, the guardian of your soul. Go to Him with two portions of prayer and one of fragrant praise. Do not pray doubtfully but thankfully. Consider that you have your petitions, and therefore thank God for His grace. He is giving you grace; give Him thanks, Hide nothing. Allow no want to lie rankling in your bosom; “make known your requests.” Run not to man. Go only to your God, the Father of Jesus, who loves you in Him.

    This shall bring you God’s own peace. You shall not be able to understand the peace which you shall enjoy. It will enfold you in its infinite embrace. Heart and mind through Christ Jesus shall be steeped in a sea of rest. Come life or death, poverty, pain, slander, you shall dwell in Jesus above every rolling wind or darkening cloud. Will you not obey this dear command?

    Yes, Lord, I do believe thee; but, I beseech thee, help mine unbelief.

    My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me? – Matt 27:46

    The most stupendous scene ever witnessed on the earth was the dying of Jesus Christ.

    It is a comfort to other sufferers who are staggered by the mystery of their sorrows to know that even Jesus, for a time at least, on His cross, could not find His Father’s face in the darkness. Yet in His feeling of forsakenness His faith did not fail.

    “He said ‘Forsaken.’ Then doubt is not sin.
    But ‘tis to stand in the night, and within
    Feel, for a while, as if day could not win.
    “His cure was this – to hold fast through the night,
    Though bowed and blind with the dust of the fight,
    God; God as ‘My God,’ unseen, but my right.”

    Love came out now in bold confession, and He slept those three days in a rich man’s tomb, in a garden, with the spring flowers blooming all about Him.

    Now therefore amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of Jehovah your God. – Jer 26:13

    I said, “Let us walk in the field.”
    He said, “Nay walk in the town.”
    I said, “There are no flowers there.”
    He said, “No flowers but a crown.”

    I said, “But the air is thick,
    And the fogs are veiling the sun.”
    He answered, “Yet souls are sick
    And souls in the dark undone.”

    I cast one look at the field,
    Then set my face to the town.
    He said: “My child, do you yield?
    Will ye leave the flowers for the crown?”

    Then into his hand went mine
    And into my heart came He,
    And I walked in a light divine
    The path I had feared to see.

    Prayer
    Eternal God, teach me the way of a complete and unbroken trust. In my disappointments, and in my devotions, may my faith and hope be as immortal as my soul. May I listen for thy voice and answer thy call. Amen.

    John 6:37
    37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.

    True Heart-Energy

    Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them, that thy profiting may appear to all. – 1 Tim 4:15

    This is, practically, a promise that, by diligent meditation and the giving up of our whole mind to our work for the Lord we shall make a progress which all can see. Not by hasty reading but by deep meditation we profit by the Word of God. Not by doing a great deal of work in a slovenly manner, but by giving our best thought to what we attempt, we shall get real profit. “In all labor there is profit” but not in fuss and hurry without true heart-energy.

    If we divide ourselves between God and mammon, or Christ and self, we shall make no progress. We must give ourselves wholly to holy things, or else we shall be poor traders in heavenly business, and at our stocktaking no profit will be shown.

    Am I a minister? Let me be a minister wholly and not spend my energies upon secondary concerns. What have I to do with party politics or vain amusements? Am I a Christian? Let me make my service of Jesus my occupation, my lifework, my one pursuit. We must be in-and-in with Jesus, and then out-and-out for Jesus, or else we shall make neither progress nor profit, and neither the church nor the world will feel the forceful influence which the Lord would have us exercise.

    Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen. – Luke 24:5-6

    The empty tomb teaches wonderful lessons. As we stand by it, we are assured, first, that Jesus died. He was certainly dead, for Pilate had official inquiry made, and received assurance of the fact before he would grant leave for the burial.

    If any doubt had existed concerning His death, there could be none after the soldier had thrust the spear into His side. Here are the pieces of fine linen, which gentle hands had wound, round the limbs. Here is the napkin which covered His face, lying, neatly folded, by itself. Look closely at the place, for He was here – He was dead.

    It is very important that we get this truth well fixed in our minds, for on Christ’s death our redemption depends. But He is not now in His grave. There is no dead form lying there where He lay yesterday. The grave is empty, and it whispers a blessed truth to the Christian.

    Jesus rose; so shall all who sleep in Him rise from their graves when He comes again.

    Render therefore unto Cæsar the things that are Cæsar's. – Matt 22:21

    When a man assumes a public trust he should consider himself public property.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident—that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
    Breathes there the man with soul so dead
    Who never to himself hath said,
    This is my own, my native land!
    Whose heart hath ne’er within him burned
    As home his footsteps he hath turned
    From wandering on a foreign strand?

    Prayer
    My Lord, I thank thee for the wisdom and love that is spoken through the lives of strong men and women. Grant that I may be willing to learn of them, and gladly serve where I am needed, remembering that thou art Lord of all. Amen.
