Text of the Day

 

 

 

SEPTEMBER 22

 

 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD  forever—Psa. 23:6.

 

  The goodness and mercy which we anticipate ... in the Kingdom has its beginning here already and is thus to be appreciated. Whoever knows nothing of the joys of the Lord in the present time will evidently not be prepared for the joys of the Lord in the Kingdom, whatever blessings and joys he may attain to under the administration of the Kingdom during the Millennial —Age. There is, then, joy and rejoicing granted to the Lord’s faithful ones, not a momentary matter connected with their first acceptance of the Lord and their consecration of themselves to Him. The goodness and mercy of the Lord is not to be looked back to as a thing of the remote past, but it is to be recognized and appreciated as a thing of the present. Day by day God’s goodness and mercy follow us, refresh us, strengthen us, bless us.
