Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

FEBRUARY 19

 

Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled

and unfaithful nothing is pure;  but both their mind and conscience are defiled.

They profess to have known God; but by their works they renounce him, being abominable and disobedient, and unto every good work worthless.—

Titus 1:15,16.

 

What a terrible condition this is, and how careful all of the Lord’s people should be, not only to have pure hearts, pure minds, but also to keep their consciences very tender, in close accord with the Word of the Lord! This condition can only be maintained by judging ourselves, and that strictly and frequently, by the standard which God has given us, His law of love.

 

I want the first approach to feel

Of pride or fond desire;

To  catch the wand’ring’ of my will,

And quench the kindling fire.
