Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

JUNE 27

 

 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God, who hath also sealed us—2. Cor. 1:21,22.

 

 The seal or mark of the true disciple is the possession of the Spirit of Christ. The manifestations of this holy Spirit are threefold: (1) love supreme to God and joyful loyalty to His cause even at the cost of suffering; (2) love for the brethren—unselfish, noble, pure—a desire for their welfare, which is always alert to do them good; (3) love, sympathetic, for the world, prompting to good works, as opportunity may afford, and to a desire and effort always to live peaceably with all men.
