JANUARY 2

Ye are not your own. For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are Godísó 1. Cor. 6:19,20.

  At the opening of the new year, what lesson could be more important to us than this one, that we are not our own, but belong to another; that we are not, therefore, to seek to please ourselves, but to please Him; nor to seek to serve self, but to serve Him; nor to seek to obey self-will, but on the contrary His will? This means holiness in the most absolute and comprehensive sense of the word, not only separation from sin to righteousness, but separation from self (and the world) to the will of God in Christ.
