• “Many do not recognize the fact as they ought, that Satan has got men fast asleep in sin and that it is his great device to keep them so. He does not care what we do if he can do that. We may sing songs about the sweet by and by, preach sermons and say prayers until doomsday, and he will never concern himself about us, if we don’t wake anybody up. But if we awake the sleeping sinner he will gnash on us with his teeth. This is our work – to wake people up.” – Catherine Booth

Joy and Strength 01/24

The throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and His servants shall serve Him ; and they shall see His face; and His name shall be in their foreheads.
Rev. xxii. 3, 4.

And doubtless unto thee is given
A life that bears immortal fruit
In such great offices as suit
The full-grown energies of heaven.
Alfred Tennyson.

IF we are to be thus disciplined and trained, as workmen in various orders of work, instruments thus formed for God’s service, what may we look to become hereafter? May not instruments thus formed, when this passing scene is over, and we appear in God’s presence, cleansed and disciplined, with the true workman’s hand, may we not be set to work in higher spheres, in grander ministries, in a world of nobler service? We speak of heaven as a sort of rest, of sweet consolation, of communion with God, such as we cannot know on earth; but consistently with this perfect sweetness, heaven is full of activity, of ministrations infinite. For God is active, and out of His activity He formed all creatures. As in^ the deep seas in their endless movements there is calm beneath, so in God are depths of peace as infinite as the activity of His creation. So, too. His creatures partake of infinite peace and intensely active service.
T. T. Carter.
