Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

JULY 18

 

 In the last days perilous times shall come; for men shall be . . . traitors, heady . . . lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God—

2. Tim. 3:1,4.

 

  The true Christian is not “heady”; on the contrary, his consecration to the Lord figuratively decapitated him. He lost his head, renounced his own will and self-rule, and submitted himself as a disciple of Jesus Christ, to the absolute control of Jesus, the Head.... The true Christian therefore, in every affair of life, in respect to its pleasures as well as in respect to its burdens and trials, appeals to his Head for direction, to know how and what to do or say—yes, to have even the very thoughts of his mind in full conformity to the will of God in Christ.
