We must be still before God. The life around us, in this age, is pre‑eminently one of rush and effort. It is the age of the express‑train and electric telegraph. Years are crowded into months, and weeks into days. This feverish haste threatens the religious life. The stream has already entered our churches, and stirred their quiet pools. Meetings crowd on meetings. The same energetic souls are found at them all, and engaged in many good works beside. But we must beware that we do not substitute the active for the contemplative, the valley for the mountain‑top. Neither can with safety be divorced from the other. The sheep must go in and out. The blood must come back to the heart to be re‑charged, and fitted to be impelled again to the extremities.

We must make time to be alone with God. The closet and the shut door are indispensable. 


Of course, really, we’re 5 days into 2017; I hope I’m not too late….regardless, I  move ahead, I hope you do too. I like Paul’s words: forgetting those things behind us; reaching forth to the future; gauging our “progress” by that high standard.

The one “thing” I want to share with you this morning: look for those divine appointments He has for you; hear Him; get out of the religion rut & daily pursue Christ.
