AB2The years roll round and steals away and I thank God that we are still on the land of the living to offer praise and thanks to Almighty God and for all the many blessings we have received at His hands. My beloved readers, friends, well-wishers, brothers and sisters in the Lord and followers of The Mystical Order let us conclude this three days email. We are speaking of the consecration of the believer, not consecration to office of an individual.
 
In conclusion, let me ask, my readers, to whom are you consecrated? Think not that you occupy a position of neutrality. You are either consecrated to the Lord or you are antagonistic to the Lord. “He that is not with me is against me.” Then, to whom have you consecrated your youth? your manhood? your future years? To whom have you consecrated yourself? Let the question haunt you until it has received a solemn and firm decision. But oh, let that decision be on the right side! “Henceforth I am the Lord’s.” The Lord loves an early consecration- a youthful consecration. He loves the young, the firstling of the flock. Let the young, then, ponder the question, “To whom shall I consecrate myself? to the creature or to Christ?” Descend, blessed Spirit, upon, the young, and constrain them to give themselves first to the Saviour and then to His Church! Let the Christian give his whole heart to the Saviour.
 
Are you so consecrated, saints of God? Then remember that all your concerns are the Lord’s concerns. They more deeply concern Him than you. You have consecrated yourself to the Lord, and the Lord has accepted the offering, and has promised to take care of you, and at last will bring you to your eternal home. May we be enabled henceforth to renounce all our idol-rivals, and yield the throne supremely to Jesus. “For what agreement has the temple of God with idols? for you are the temple of the living God.”
 
The vows of God are upon you. God give you grace to fulfill them! You have given yourself to the Lord; let nothing influence you to draw back. Oh, press onward! Christ’s grace is sufficient for you. When tempted to stray, it will keep you; when you fall, it will raise you up; when weary and faint, it will restore and revive you. Distrust, yourself, abide in Christ; and if His chastening cleanses you from your idols, it will be but to reign Himself without a rival in your heart. Hallelujah
 
Thank you for bearing with me and for your faithfulness daily reading these emails. May your faith see you through and make you a better person en-route to the Kingdom of God.
 

Your servant and brother,
