Morning and Evening

For the morning of October 25th

"For the truths sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with usfor ever." --2 John 2

Once let the truth of God obtain an entrance into the human heart and subdue the whole man unto itself, no power human orinfernal can dislodge it. We entertain it not as a guest but asthe master of the house--this is a Christian necessity, he isno Christian who doth not thus believe. Those who feel the vitalpower of the gospel, and know the might of the Holy Ghost as Heopens, applies, and seals the Lord's Word, would sooner be tornto pieces than be rent away from the gospel of their salvation.What a thousand mercies are wrapt up in the assurance that thetruth will be with us for ever; will be our living support, ourdying comfort, our rising song, our eternal glory; this isChristian privilege, without it our faith were little worth.Some truths we outgrow and leave behind, for they are butrudiments and lessons for beginners, but we cannot thus dealwith Divine truth, for though it is sweet food for babes, it isin the highest sense strong meat for men. The truth that we aresinners is painfully with us to humble and make us watchful; themore blessed truth that whosoever believeth on the Lord Jesusshall be saved, abides with us as our hope and joy. Experience,so far from loosening our hold of the doctrines of grace, hasknit us to them more and more firmly; our grounds and motivesfor believing are now more strong, more numerous than ever, andwe have reason to expect that it will be so till in death weclasp the Saviour in our arms.

Wherever this abiding love of truth can be discovered, we arebound to exercise our love. No narrow circle can contain ourgracious sympathies, wide as the election of grace must be ourcommunion of heart. Much of error may be mingled with truthreceived, let us war with the error but still love the brotherfor the measure of truth which we see in Him; above all let uslove and spread the truth ourselves.
