One Gleam of Hope

"Never should we cease to labor for a soul while there is one gleam of hope. Precious souls cost our self-sacrificing Redeemer too dear a price to be lightly given up to the tempter's power." -Ministry of Healing p.168

Don't lightly give one up. Ever. He hasn't given up on you.

When Champions are Few

"When the religion of Christ is most held in contempt, 
when His law is most despised, 
then should our zeal be the warmest
 and our courage and firmness the most unflinching. 

To stand in defense of truth and righteousness
when the majority forsake us, 
to fight the battles of the Lord
 when champions are few
--this will be our test. 

At this time we must gather 
warmth from the coldness of others, 
courage from their cowardice, 
and loyalty from their treason."

--5T 136 (1882).

Lord, teach us how to let every trial, person, and situation draw us only closer to You.
