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.“
(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!
