Text of the Day






The God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory

by Jesus Christ, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, confirm, and strengthen you—

1. Pet. 5:10; see Diaglott.


It is only through endurance of hardness as good soldiers of Christ that this desirable condition can be attained, namely, perfect self-control and ability to resist evil; established faith, patience and virtue; settled, abiding rest in Christ; and hope through His word of promise. This undoubtedly was the Apostle’s own experience as he grew old in the Master’s service, and so may it be ours. Let each departing year find us nearer the glorious summit of perfection!
