DECEMBER 1 The Hard Way

DECEMBER 5 “How Deep?”

"That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto" (1 Thess. 3 :3 ). God moves through wintry snows to the coveted harvests. Why should the frost be counted necessary in the process of rearing the golden grain? Well, that is the appoint­ ed way. . . . The springs of abiding joy are up in the mountains of rectitude, and there is the hard climb before we can have the delicious draught. God most assuredly an­ swers our prayers, but we travel to our bounty by the way of “terrible things.” — J. H. J o w ett . DECEMBER 2 Sovereign Wisdom "Him who worketh all things after the counsel o f his own will" (Eph. 1:11). Not all the power of the enemy can harm God’s servants for whom He still has work to do. But "the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church”; and when it is His will for a young worker to be removed after a work so recently begun as that of James, or of Stephen, that early removal fulfills His all-wise purposes as surely as the lifelong faithfulness of a white-haired servant of His. “W e are not called upon to explain God, but to trust Him.”— Life of Faith. "Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood o f Jesus, . . . Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance o f faith" (Heb. T0:19, 22). W e are encouraged to draw near with a true heart. The veil is rent, and we may go in. When we go in, we go to offer up sacrifices. Perhaps we are too much taken up with being blessed ourselves and too lit­ tle with offering up praise to God. "By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually.” God would rather have five words from a true heart of appreciation of His Son than an offering of a thousand pounds from a cold heart. The Lord help us so to praise Him. —W . W . F ereday . DECEMBER 3 A True Heart "Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same exam­ ple o f unbelief" (Heb. 4:11). Faith has been described aptly by some as "Forsaking All, I Take Him.” How much the “all” includes, many saints never fully learn—all our sins, of course; all our righteousness, our self-complacency, our self-confidence; our own desire for fame, or wealth, or pleasure; our doubts, our fears, our unbelief, and suspicion. And then to enter into the rest of faith, to sink into the will of God, to take all that comes and all He sends with joy—this is rest. » 1 —A . P aget W il k e s . DECEMBER 4 Faith Defined

"Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled” (Matt. 5 :6 ). A little puny child was brought to a Lon­ don hospital for treatment, and on his ar­ rival the nurse gave him a glass of milk. Before lifting the glass to his lips, the little fellow asked anxiously, “How deep may I drink, Miss?” How much that question toid of the poverty of a home where a glass had to be shared among many! He could hardly believe the nurse when she told him to drink it all. How deep may we drink in our thirst after righteousness? God made us for righteousness: we shall be filled; where­ fore we are blessed. —The Teacher s Guide.

DECEMBER 6 Satisfied

"He satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness" (Psa. 107: 9). Poor I was, and sought for riches—

Something that would satisfy; But the dust I gathered round me Only mocked my soul’s sad cry. Well of water, ever springing; Bread of life, so rich and free; Untold wealth that never faileth, My Redeemer is to me.

Hallelujah! I have found Him— Whom my soul so long has craved; Jesus satisfies my longings; Through His blood I now am saved. — C lara T ea re .

DECEMBER 7 Our Advocate

"If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous" (1 John 2:1). There is no need that we who are Christ’s should sin; we have no right to sin. No indulgence was ever granted to us that we should sin. But in case we do, “we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” But this does not excuse sin, any more than because a building has a fire escape you should set the building on fire for the sake of using the escape! . . . But in case we do sin, we have an Advo­ cate to see us through. — J o hn M ac B e a th . "Y e search the scriptures . . . ; and these are they which bear witness o f me" (John 5:39, R. V .). Christ is the message of Scripture from beginning to end . . .
