• “When we begin to understand what the blood of Jesus does for us, we will testify to the power of His blood, and shall thus have power continually to overcome the enemy. It is blessed to note that the blood of Jesus is the purchase price of our full salvation. ‘Take heed…to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood’ (Acts 20:28)” – Carrie Judd Montgomery

Joy and Strength 12/26

They loved not their lives unto the death.
Rev. xii. II.

Our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.
I Thess. v. 9, 10.

Be ours the faith that sees Thee stand
Beside the throne of God on high.
To succor with Thy strong right hand
Thy soldiers when to Thee they cry.

Be ours the love, divine and free,
Which asks forgiveness for our foes;
Which draws, in life, its life from Thee,
And, dying, finds in Thee repose.
J. F. Thrupp.

“IF He has done so much for me, what can I do for Him?” is the question which a Christian life should answer. He may ask little or much. He may demand heroic sacrifices, or He may require only punctual attention to daily and prosaic duty. But He has a right to make any demands He will, and it should be a point of honor with every Christian to satisfy Him. It is this simple self-surrender, in a spirit of love for God and for the souls of men, which makes life strong and noble, as was the life of St. Stephen. It is this self-surrender which makes death, whenever or wherever it may come, a “falling asleep in Christ.”
