MAY 2

 

All that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecutionó

2. Tim. 3:12.

 

 Opposition is to be expected and will, doubtless, continue until we finish our course in death. To submit patiently to this opposition is to sacrifice our own natural preferences for the friendship and the pleasures of the present life, and to endure hardness as good soldiers for the Truthís sake, in whatever shape that hardness may come, in our effort to do the Lordís will and work of advancing the interests of His Kingdom. To be really in the Lordís service involves, first, the careful and continual study of Godís Plan; second, the imbibing of its spirit; leading, thirdly, to an enthusiastic zeal for its accomplishment, and to activity to the extent of ability in its service, at whatever cost or sacrifice it may require.
