As the body is one, and yet has
many members...so also is Christ
HE is also the head of the body, the church.--The head over all things
to the church, which is his body, the fulness of Him who fills all in all.-- We are members of
A body thou hast prepared Me.--Thine eyes have seen my
unformed substance; and in Thy book they were all written, the days that
were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.
Thine they were, and thou gavest them me.--He chose us
in Him before the foundation of the world -- Whom He foreknew, He also
predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son
We are to grow up in all aspects into Him, who is
the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held
together by that which every joint supplies according to the proper working
of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up
of itself in love.

The fountain of living waters
HOW precious is Thy lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take
refuge in the shadow of Thy wings. They drink their fill of the abundance of
Thy house and Thou dost give them to drink of the river of Thy delights. For
with Thee is the fountain of life
Thus says the Lord GOD, Behold, My servants shall eat,
but you shall be hungry. Behold, My servants shall drink, but you shall be
thirsty -- But whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never
thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of
water springing up to eternal life. -- This He spoke of the Spirit, whom
those who believed in Him were to receive
Ho, every one that thirsts, come to the waters.--The Spirit
and the bride say, Come. And let the one who hears say, Come. And let the
one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life

"That ye may be blameless and
harmless, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and
perverse generation, among whom ye are seen as lights in the world,
holding forth the word of life."--
Php 2:15, 16 (R.V.).
THE SPIRIT of man, says the wise man, is the candle
of the Lord (Pr 20:27).
By nature we are like so many unlit lamps and candles. As the wick is
adapted for the flame, but stands dark and cold until it is ignited, so we
are unable to shed forth any light until our nature is kindled from the
Eternal Nature of Him who "is Light, and in whom is no darkness at all."
Has the candle of your life been lit by contact with Christ, the Sun of
Our Lord says: "Let your light shine
before men." He shows how absurd it is to light a lamp, and then obscure
its rays by placing it under a bushel. The purpose of ignition is
frustrated if the light is covered. Ah! how many of us place bushels on
the light of our testimony for God--the bushel of uncharitable speech! Of
ill-temper! Of a discontented and querulous spirit! These as well as more
conspicuous failings will prevent us from shining forth as light in a dark
world. It is not for us to ignite the flame or supply the oil. All we have
to do is to keep our lamps clean and bright, to guard against anything
that may obstruct the out-shining of the Love and Life of God through the
soul. If we are careful to see that anything which might hinder the effect
of our testimony and mar our influence is put away, Christ will see to it
that our light shall effect the full measure of His purpose.
In contrast to the bushel is the
stand or candlestick. The Master of the House may place you in a very
small dark corner, and on a very humble stand, but some day, as He passes
by, you shall light His footsteps as He goes forth to seek and save that
which is lost. What is your stand?--your place in society, your position
in the home, your situation in some business house, factory, or
school--wherever it be, it doesn't matter, so long as your light is
shining forth, steady and clear, warning and directing men and women in
the path of life.
O Christ, may the fire of Thy Divine
Love burn up our bushels; help us to shine forth as lights in this dark

by C H Spurgeon
(Read C H Spurgeon's testimony
- It is miraculous as is EVERY testimony of the new birth)
Wherever I Am
LORD will be with you" (2 Chronicles 20:17).
This was a great mercy for Jehoshaphat, for a great multitude had come out
against him; and it will be a great mercy for me, for I have great need,
and I have no might or wisdom. If the LORD be with me, it matters little
who may desert me. If the LORD be with me, I shall conquer in the battle
of life, and the greater my trials the more glorious will be my victory.
How can I be sure that the LORD is with me? For certain He is with me if I
am with Him. If I trust in His faithfulness, believe His words, and obey
His commands, He is assuredly with me. If I am on Satan's side, God is
against me and cannot be otherwise; but if I live to honor God, I may be
sure that He will honor me. I am quite sure that God is with me if Jesus
is my sole and only Savior. If I have placed my soul in the hands of God's
only-begotten Son, then I may be sure that the Father will put forth all
His power to preserve me, that His Son may not be dishonored. Oh, for
faith to take hold upon the short but sweet text for today! O LORD,
fulfill this word to Thy servant! Be with me in the house, in the street,
in the field, in the shop, in company, and alone. Be Thou also with all
MORNING AND EVENING
““Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the
tents of Kedar.”
As a Christian you have to live in the midst of an ungodly world,
and it is of little use for you to cry “Woe is me.” Jesus did not
pray that you should be taken out of the world, and what he did
not pray for, you need not desire. Better far in the Lord’s
strength to meet the difficulty, and glorify him in it. The enemy
is ever on the watch to detect inconsistency in your conduct; be
therefore very holy. Remember that the eyes of all are upon you,
and that more is expected from you than from other men. Strive to
give no occasion for blame. Let your goodness be the only fault
they can discover in you. Like Daniel, compel them to say of you,
“We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we
find it against him concerning the law of his God.” Seek to be
useful as well as consistent. Perhaps you think, “If I were in a
more favourable position I might serve the Lord’s cause, but I
cannot do any good where I am”; but the worse the people are among
whom you live, the more need have they of your exertions; if they
be crooked, the more necessity that you should set them straight;
and if they be perverse, the more need have you to turn their
proud hearts to the truth. Where should the physician be but where
there are many sick? Where is honour to be won by the soldier but
in the hottest fire of the battle? And when weary of the strife
and sin that meets you on every hand, consider that all the saints
have endured the same trial. They were not carried on beds of down
to heaven, and you must not expect to travel more easily than
they. They had to hazard their lives unto the death in the high
places of the field, and you will not be crowned till you also
have endured hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
Therefore, “stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be
““Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea?”
Some things in nature must remain a mystery to the most
intelligent and enterprising investigators. Human knowledge has
bounds beyond which it cannot pass. Universal knowledge is for God
alone. If this be so in the things which are seen and temporal, I
may rest assured that it is even more so in matters spiritual and
eternal. Why, then, have I been torturing my brain with
speculations as to destiny and will, fixed fate, and human
responsibility? These deep and dark truths I am no more able to
comprehend than to find out the depth which coucheth beneath, from
which old ocean draws her watery stores. Why am I so curious to
know the reason of my Lord’s providences, the motive of his
actions, the design of his visitations? Shall I ever be able to
clasp the sun in my fist, and hold the universe in my palm? yet
these are as a drop of a bucket compared with the Lord my God. Let
me not strive to understand the infinite, but spend my strength in
love. What I cannot gain by intellect I can possess by affection,
and let that suffice me. I cannot penetrate the heart of the sea,
but I can enjoy the healthful breezes which sweep over its bosom,
and I can sail over its blue waves with propitious winds. If I
could enter the springs of the sea, the feat would serve no useful
purpose either to myself or to others, it would not save the
sinking bark, or give back the drowned mariner to his weeping wife
and children; neither would my solving deep mysteries avail me a
single whit, for the least love to God, and the simplest act of
obedience to him, are better than the profoundest knowledge. My
Lord, I leave the infinite to thee, and pray thee to put far from
me such a love for the tree of knowledge as might keep me from the
tree of life.

SEPTEMBER The Fifth
FAITH AND RIDICULE
Matthew 9:18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26.
AND, so one man’s faith is more than a match for many people’s scorn. The
steady trust of the ruler was not shaken by the rude flippancy of the
artificial mourners, and his daughter was brought from the dead. “This is
the victory that overcometh, even our faith.” Everything bows, like
fragile reeds, before the march of a victorious faith. Scorn, and hatred,
and all manner of devilry, and death itself, all lose their power in the
presence of a belief which remains steady and steadfast. “Said I not unto
thee that, if thou wouldst believe, thou shouldst see the glory of God?”
And what an infinite reservoir of power is waiting to be tapped by the
hand of faith! A ruler believes and his daughter is vitalized. A poor
woman, bent and broken, reaches out her thin, frail hand, and lo! she is
erect and graceful as the pine! And “my sufficiency is of God!” All that I
may need is in the same wonderful reservoir of grace. That healing flood
is like the ocean fulness, and it will fill every bay, and cove, and creek
in the wide-stretching shore of human need.
“The healing of His seamless dress
Is by our beds of pain,
We touch Him in life’s throng and press,
And we are whole again.”
"This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: The Lord, the God of
heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth—and He has
appointed me to build a temple for Him at Jerusalem!" Ezra 1:2
It comforts us to know that nothing is going wrong in this world,
though at times, all seems to be in confusion. It ought to comfort
us to know that there is One, greater than men, who rules over all
A little boy sat in front of his father in a carriage, and held
the reins. But his father held them too, although the boy did not
know it. Presently the boy felt one of the reins drawn through his
little hands. He understood it then, and said, "Father, I thought
I was driving; but I am not, am I?"
Just so, we think that WE are doing great things—but there is One
behind us, whose hand really holds the reins!
"In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to
the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the
purpose of his will." Ephesians 1:11
"The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the
Lord." Proverbs 16:33
"A king's heart is a water channel in the Lord's hand: He directs
it wherever He chooses." Proverbs 21:1

-Devadasi Temple Prostitutes
“Come Sarla,” Father pulled the 13-year-old girl along by her arm.
“I have a surprise for you. Don’t you want a beautiful new sari
and some sweets?” Sarla smiled in expectation as she ducked into
the room filled with women in lovely and expensive silk gowns,
laden with gold and jeweled ornaments. Sarla did not understand
why her father abruptly left with tears in his eyes.
Kini, one of the well-dressed women, came forward and placed her
hand on Sarla’s shoulder. “You’re a servant of the goddess now,
and what you do will build good karma. If you get AIDS, all you
have to do is give it to one of your clients and the goddess will
heal you.” AIDS? Sarla wondered what this was all about.
Today, instead of coming from greatly elevated castes as in the
past, most of the 50,000 devadasis in Karnataka are taken from the
poorest and most destitute of castes. Illiteracy prevents them
from seeking other work and many are sick and dying. More than
1,000 girls between five and 10 years old are dedicated to the
temple work every year, only to be brought to the work when they
reach puberty. When they become infected they are frequently left
to die in a ditch by the families who lived off their income.

Pray for the devadasis to learn of and accept the invitation of
the heavenly Bridegroom, Christ, to be His beloved bride forever.

For hundreds of years people have gotten away with exploiting
Devadasis, even using a religious system as an excuse. God is
patient, but there will come a day when He will arise as the
defender and ruin those who exploit the poor.
Pray that those who exploit women and children in India will
repent with hearts filled with fear of the living God and love for
the One who holds the key to their future.—KC

Leonard Ravenhill summed it up...
doesn't need to pray. The self-sufficient doesn't want to
self-righteous cannot pray!
Paulus commented: "Those three
principles apply to revival: We are so self-satisfied that
we don't want revival, so
self-sufficient that we think we don't need revival, and so
self-righteous that we can't have revival." (Ouch!)

God addressed Israel
in the following famous passage but the timeless principle is
apropos to believers in America ...
If I shut up the heavens so
that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the
land, or if I send pestilence among My people,
and My people who are called by My name humble themselves
and pray, and seek My face and turn from
their wicked ways,
then I will hear
from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal
their land. (2Chr 7:13, 14)
J. Barton Payne writes that
"This great verse, the best known in all Chronicles, expresses as
does no other in Scripture God’s requirement for national
blessing, whether in Solomon’s land, in Ezra’s, or in our own.
Those who believe must forsake their sins, turn from the life that
is centered in self, and yield to God’s word and will. Then, and
only then, will heaven send revival."
May God grant His children
grace to plead for a Spirit driven, God glorifying, Word centered,
Christ exalting revival of the Body of Christ in America.
First of all, then, I urge that
entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on
behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, in
order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness
and dignity. (1Ti 2:1,2)
Our Heavenly Father
desires to hear His children cry out with "fasting, sackcloth and
ashes" (Da 9:3), reflecting not the external appearance of our
bodies, but more accurately the internal condition of our hearts -
sinful (Da 9:5 - "we" not "they"!), rejecting His Holy Word
(Da 9:6-"we"), shameful (Da 9:8-"us"), contrite, and
broken (Ps 51:17), over our national rejection of God's righteous
and holy Name...
Daniel's prayer (Da 9:3,
4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19) is an
excellent "template" for all saints to emulate as we begin to
intercede with a sense of urgency for
America and especially for God's Name and reputation considering
that the world thinks of us as a "Christian nation" and we once
called ourselves "One Nation Under God"!
Matthew Henry's comments
on Lev 26:40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46 (directed first to Israel but
applicable to any nation that rejects Him)
Among the Israelites, persons
were not always prosperous or afflicted according to their
obedience or disobedience. But national prosperity was the
effect of national obedience, and national judgments
were brought on by national wickedness. Israel was under a

Sooner or later, sin will be

Oh that, being humbled for

(Note: Henry's comments
were published in 1706 and national revival, the
First Great Awakening,
occurred in the 1730's and 1740's! Brethren, there is hope because
there is a "God of hope"! Ro 15:13)
