Exhort one another
daily, while it is called Today;
lest any of you be
hardened through the deceitfulness of sin—Heb. 3:13.
If we realize that a
spiritual lethargy has to any extent been creeping over us,
imperceptibly benumbing our spiritual senses, so that the Truth is
losing its inspiring power upon us, our first duty is to betake
ourselves to prayer and to communion with God and His Word, that its
sanctifying power may be realized. For we are made partakers of the
Kingdom with Christ, if we hold the beginning of our
confidence steadfast unto the end
