The purpose of my instruction is that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith.
— 1 Timothy 1:5, NLT
The Sabbath-school should be one of the greatest instrumentalities, and the most effectual, in bringing souls to Christ. Our Sabbath-school workers need to be especially imbued with the spirit of Christ.
The missionary spirit is awakened in his heart; and while walking humbly and circumspectly in accordance with his faith, he cannot rest until he is engaged in the work of trying to win souls to Christ. He wants every one to know the preciousness of a Saviour’s love.
Let every true worker be grateful to God that he is honored in having an opportunity of working for the Master. Watch for opportunities to do good, and improve the talents God has given you, seeking grace daily that you may succeed in doing good.
Let the prayer go forth from unfeigned lips, “Lord, increase my faith; give me divine enlightenment; for without help from thee I can do nothing.”
Come in humility and bow before God; open before the Lord your Bibles, containing the divine promises; take your position upon them; make a covenant with God that you will answer his requirements; tell him you will believe without any other evidence except the naked promise.
The words and promises of God are the only foundation of our faith. Take the word of God as truth, as a living, speaking voice to you, and obey faithfully every requirement. God is faithful who hath promised. He will work with the efforts of superintendents and teachers. Our blessings are limited by the weakness of our faith. God is not unwilling to bestow; he is a reservoir of power. We must cherish meekness and lowliness of heart. We may have rich evidences of his love and mercy daily in our self-denying efforts to do others good.
I entreat the workers in our Sabbath-schools to put on the whole armor of God, and as faithful soldiers of Jesus Christ, show their fidelity.
God will reward every work that is done to his glory.
—Sabbath-School Worker, April 1, 1886
Watch for opportunities to do good. Seek grace daily that you may succeed in doing good.
Pray, “Lord, increase my faith; give me divine enlightenment; for without help from You I can do nothing.”
In humility bow before God, open your Bible containing the divine promises and take your position on them.
Take the word of God as truth. Make a covenant with God that you will answer His requirements; tell Him you will believe without any other evidence except the naked promise.
