(by Octavius Winslow)
What a source of joy you have in Jehovah
amid the joyless, sorrowful path you may tread.
There is everything in Him to make you
happy. Everything to win your confidence,
to inspire your love, to awaken your joy.
Creatures shall fail,
resources shall fail,
hopes shall fail, but
God will never fail you!
His love is as changeless,
And His power is as omnipotent,
His faithfulness is as firm,
And His resources are as boundless,
1. A supreme love for Jesus Christ.
2. A denial of self.
3. A deliberate choosing of the cross.
4. A life spent in following Christ.
5. A fervent love for all who belong to Christ.
6. An unswerving commitment to His Word.
7. A forsaking of all to follow Him.
“In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has, cannot be My disciple.” Luke 14:33

Arthur Pink: “Because God is God indeed–He does as He pleases, only as He pleases, always as He pleases. His great concern is the promotion of His own glory. He is the Supreme Being, and therefore Sovereign of the universe!”
