He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds.
— Titus 2:14, NLT
The Lord, by close and pointed truths for these last days, is cleaving out a people from the world and purifying them unto Himself.
Love for one another, and supreme love to their heavenly Father, should be exemplified in their conversation and works. The present condition of many of the children of God is like that of a family of ungrateful and quarrelsome children.
We are amid the perils of the last days. Important and fearful events are before us. How necessary that all who do fear God and love His law should humble themselves before Him, and be afflicted and mourn, and confess the sins that have separated God from His people.
“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world…”
That which should excite the greatest alarm, is that we do not feel or understand our condition…and that we are satisfied to remain as we are.
We should flee to the word of God and to prayer, individually seeking the Lord earnestly, that we may find Him. We should make this our first business.
The light that shines upon our pathway makes us responsible to let that light shine forth to others in such a manner that they will glorify God.
— Testimonies for the Church, Volume 3, p.52,53
Be an example of love for one another and supreme love to your heavenly Father in both conversation and works.
All should humble themselves before Him. Be afflicted, mourn and confess the sins that have separated God from His people.
Flee to the word of God and to prayer. Individually seek the Lord that we may find Him. Make this your first business.
