Our silent influence…

Something to ponder:

J.R. Miller: “Every Christian can preach sermons every day, at home and among neighbors and friends–by the beauty of holiness in his own common life. Wherever a true Christian goes, his life ought to be an inspiration. Our silent influence ought to touch other lives with a blessing–shining like holy lamps into sad and weary hearts. Our lives ought to be blessings to human sorrow and need all about us.

As flowers are a silent blessing, so should our lives be

I am God’s child!

(James Smith, “Food for the Soul” 1867)

“We are the children of God!” Romans 8:16

Never let us forget or lose sight of this — but let us live, walk, and act under the impression that, “I am God’s child!

He knows me — and knows all about me;

loves me — and loves me with the same love with which He loves His only-begotten Son.

He cares for me — and so cares for me that I ought not to be anxious about anything;

is with me — and will never for one moment trust me out of His sight, or out of the reach of His hand.

He appoints my daily lot — and will overrule everything for my eternal welfare!

I must remember that I am God’s child!
