Let no unwholesome word proceed out of your mouth, but only that which is good for building up, that it may give grace to the listeners.
— Ephesians 4:29, MEV
Are we getting ready to meet the King? When He comes in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory, will you be able to say, “Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us”?
To those who can say this, Christ will say: “Come up higher. Upon this earth you have loved me. You have loved to do My will. You can now enter the holy city, and receive the crown of everlasting life.”
Remember that just as you are in your family, so will you be in the church. Just as you treat your children, so will you treat Christ.
When you are tempted to speak cross words, pray for grace to resist the temptation. Remember that your children will speak as they hear you speak. By your example you are educating them.
Through infinite sacrifice made in our behalf, we may have an abundance of grace. God has a whole heaven full for us.
All He asks is that by living faith we receive His promises, saying: “I do believe. I do accept the blessings which Thou hast for those who love Thee.”
Let us ask God to clothe us with the robe of Christ’s righteousness, that we may be prepared for the coming of the Son of man.
This is our washing and ironing time,—the time when we are to cleanse our robes of character in the blood of the Lamb. John says, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”
I thank Thee, my heavenly Father, I praise Thee, that Thou hast given us Jesus, to take away our sins. Shall we not let Him take them away? Shall we not let our sins go?
