Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

JULY 31

 

 Every manís work shall be made manifest; for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fireó

1.Cor. 3:13.

 

 The Apostle speaks of this time of fiery trial, and, likening the faith and works of a zealous Christian to a house built of gold, silver and precious stones, he declares that the fire of this day, in the end of this Age, shall try every manís work of what sort it is, and shall consume all but genuine faith and character structures. But we are to remember that such loyal charac­ters grow not suddenly, in a few hours or daysó mushroom-likeóbut are progressive developments, fine-grained and strong like the olive tree.
