DECEMBER 31

 

 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward

 me? I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his peopleóPsa. 116:12-14.

 

  The close of the year is an excellent time for the making of new resolutions for the year to come.

Let us, beloved brethren, make plenty of good resolves respecting what we shall be willing to be, to do, to suffer, in fellowship with our Lord; that we may by His grace make of it the best year thus far of our lives the year of largest hopes, of largest endeavours, and by the Lordís grace, of largest successes in self-sacrifice, in overcoming the world and its spirit, in vanquishing self and the desires of the flesh, in resisting the Adversary, and in glorifying our Lord and blessing His people.
