"GOD DESIRES US
to make use of every opportunity for securing a preparation for His work".
"Christian life is more than many take it to be. It does not consist wholly in gentleness, patience, meekness, and kindliness.
These graces are essential; but there is need also of courage, force, energy, and perseverance. The path that Christ marks out is a narrow, self-denying path. To enter that path and press on through difficulties and discouragements requires men who are more than weaklings”.
MH. P. 498-1
