Think about it

Could the curtain be rolled back, could you discern the purposes of God and the judgments that are about to fall upon a doomed world, could you see your own attitude, you would fear and tremble for your own souls and for the souls of your fellow men. Earnest prayers of heart-rending anguish would go up to heaven. You would weep between the porch and the altar, confessing your spiritual blindness and backsliding.  {6T 408.3}

The Word of God

The silent influence of a Christian character will fall upon men like a sunbeam. May God help you to do right because it is right.

 The Bible is a progressive book; the communication of intelligence grows with the opening of God’s Word to the understanding.  {1888 259.1}

The Bible presents beautiful truths that all may understand, and at the same time it deals in deep mysteries and doctrines which will require deep thought to understand. But nothing is to be misinterpreted, misapplied, or weakened as lightly inspired if inspired at all. God does nothing by halves. His Word is inspired.And God designs that men shall take the Scriptures as His inspired Word, and any man that shall venture to distinguish between the portions of God’s Word, exalting one and belittling another, and taking away from another, places himself in a dangerous position.  {1888 259.2}

Counsel to Leaders

In order to bear your responsibilities aright, you must be an ever growing Christian;

  • Your faith must be strong,
  • your consecration complete,
  • your love perfect,
  • your zeal ardent;
  • you must make steady advancement in the knowledge and the love of Christ that you may witness in those under your charge the precious fruits of the Spirit.

You need spiritual discernment. Keep the eye single to the glory of God, that your profiting may appear unto all. Do not gather to yourself too many burdens, to worry and perplex you.

  • Grasp the promises of God.
  • Press close to the bleeding side of Jesus.
  • Encourage tenderness and compassion.
  • Improve every means of grace, that your love may abound more and more, that you may have wisdom from above,

that you “may approve things that are excellent, . . . being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.” Your present and future usefulness depend on your living connection with God.
