Text of the Day

 

 

 

SEPTEMBER 1

 

 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before The Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israeló Acts 9:15.

 

 It is because we see Jesus to be the Fatherís choice that we unite ourselves to Him; it is because we see the Fatherís character manifested in Him that we leave all to follow Him. Similarly, if we lend our aid, our support to any human being in connection with the Divine Plan and service, it should be simply upon this groundónot merely a personal magnetism or favoritism, but because our hearts are touched by the Lord with a realization of the leaderís being of His appointment.
