“Do all things without murmurings and disputing’s: That you may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the middle of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom you shine as lights in the world; holding forth the word of life; …” Philippians 2:14-16.
We cannot afford in the few days we have here on earth to spend our time in trifling and nothingness. We need to humble our souls before God that every heart may bring in the truth, and let it work in life a reformation that will convince the world that this is indeed the truth of God. Let the life be hidden with Christ in God. Only when we seek the Lord as little children when we cease picking flaws in our brethren and sisters, and in those who are seeking to carry faithfully the responsibilities of the work and seek to get our own hearts right with God, can He use us to the glory of His name.
We all need to come into a self-sacrificing position before God if our work is to be accepted by Him. Let us remember that profession is nothing unless we have the truth in our hearts. We need the converting power of God to take hold of us, that we may understand the needs of a perishing world. The burden of my message to you is: Get ready, get ready to meet the Lord. Trim your lamps, and let the light of truth shine forth into the byways and the hedges. There is a world to be warned of the near approach of the end of all things. –Testimony Treasures, vol. 3, pp. 340, 341.
Question to think about:
Do we have the truth in our hearts?
Do we need the converting power of God to take hold of us?
Are we getting ready to meet the Lord?
