“Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,” Hebrews 3:7
Today, the Holy Spirit says, is the season for surrender and consecration. I have gone after strange gods too long; at the most and best, it has been a sadly divided allegiance which I have rendered my Lord. But now is His chosen time for ending this drooping piety and this lukewarm love.
- I must abjure every doubtful practice.
- I must forsake every questionable companionship.
- I must crucify every ensnaring sin.
- I must live nearer to Christ and His cross.
It may cost me much — but the gain will far outweigh the loss.
Today, the Holy Spirit says, is the season for service. Each fresh morning He calls me to do something, however little it be, for my Master and for His people. He appeals to me by the immensity of the debt I owe my Lord Jesus Christ, by the shortness of the time, by the largeness of the work that remains to be done, and by the sweetness of labour for His dear sake. “Up and be doing!” the Spirit of God says to me.
Ah, there are immeasurable possibilities in a single day!
