Looking to Him will . . .
- enlighten us in darkness,
- cheer us in solitude,
- strengthen us in weakness,
- fortify us in conflict,
- embolden us in danger,
- comfort us in sorrow, and render us more than conquerors over every foe.
Let us daily walk leaning on Jesus. He will be at our side, He will lend us His arm, yes, His bosom! The posture of the Church should be ours, "Who is this coming up out of the wilderness, leaning on her Beloved?" As we get nearer to Jesus--we get further from the world! The world loses its attractions--and old sinful habits lose their power.
Let us daily walk communing with Jesus. He loves to converse with us. Let us tell Him of our foes, fears, afflictions, privations, griefs, and woes. Let us tell Him everything that tries or troubles us. He says, "Let Me hear your voice!" Yes, O Savior, You shall hear me; for I will bring all my sorrows and joys, all my trials and triumphs, all my doubts and deliverances--to You!
Let us daily walk imitating Jesus. He has left us an example, that we should follow in His footsteps. In the family, in the world, and in the church--let us endeavor to imitate Jesus. And may we receive grace to conform our conduct to His, that all who see us may take knowledge of us, that we have learned of Him who is "meek and humble in heart;" who was "holy, harmless, undefiled, and separate from sinners."
May our spirit, temper, course, and conduct--all conspire to bear testimony that we are walking with Jesus!
