The fruit of
the Spirit is...goodness.
BE imitators of God,
as beloved children--Love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you
in order that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes
His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous
and the unrighteous.--Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
The fruit of the light consists in all goodness and righteousness and
When the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared
He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness,
but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by
the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our
Savior.--The LORD is good to all: and His
mercies are over all his works.--He who did not spare His own Son,
but delivered Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give
us all things?
Ga 5.22. Ep. 5.1.--Mt. 5.44,
Lk 6.36. Ep. 5.9. Titus. 3.4-6.--Ps. 145:9.--
WAS brought low, and He saved me.--Blessed be the LORD,
because He has heard the voice of my supplication. The LORD is my strength
and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart
exults, and with my song I shall thank Him.
It is better to take refuge in the LORD Than to trust in man. It is
better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes.--How blessed is
he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God.--He
led them also by a straight way, to go to an inhabited city.--Not one of the
good promises which the LORD had made to the house of Israel failed all came
I sent you out without purse and bag and sandals, you did not lack
anything, did you? And they said, No, nothing.--For Thou hast been my
help, and in the shadow of Thy wings I sing for joy.

THE CALL TO SERVICE
"Come ye after Me, and I
will make you to become fishers of men. And straightway they left
the nets, and followed Him."-- Mar 1:7-18.
AS OF old, Christ is still
passing through the centres of busy, thronging life, calling men
from their nets and boats, from the countinghouse and the
market-place, or from the seclusion of the study, and saying, with
His own inimitable and irresistible charm: "Follow Me, and I will
make you fishers of men." It may be that He has already come to
you, casting over you the mantle of service, as Elijah over the
young ploughman whilst following his team.
You may be startled at the
suggestion, but probably all the mighty band of men and women who
have responded to His Call, were similarly startled when first the
summons awoke them to action. Samuel was startled when the Divine
voice rang out in the night; Gideon was startled, and replied:
"Behold my family is poor, and I am the least in my father's
house"; Jeremiah said, when the call came to him: "Ah, Lord God!
Behold I cannot speak, for I am a child." Moses drew back, and
said that he was unequal for the task to which God summoned him.
Christ's Call comes
specially to the young--to Henry Martyn amid his books, to David
Livingstone at his loom, to Carey at his cobbler's bench, to Mary
Slessor in the Scottish factory, and to many another. Young people
have a marvellous power of acquiring languages, and mastering any
difficulties of country, race, or condition, and what other men
and women are doing for fame, position, and wealth, surely we can
do for Jesus. We are His blood-bought slaves, and surely He has
the right to say to each of us, Come, Go, Do this, Follow Me!
Listen to the appeal of
Christ on behalf of the millions of souls for whom He died, and to
some of whom He wants to send you. Yield yourself to Him, and let
Him infuse into you His mighty passion for their salvation. Do not
look at your circumstances, or count your five loaves and two
small fishes, wondering if they will suffice; or at the waves,
questioning if they will bear you up. Keep your eyes fixed on Him,
and your ears open to His voice, and when once you are sure of His
leading, go forward in His Name. Jordan will divide before you,
and the walls of Jericho will fall flat.
Lord, here am I, send me
wheresoever thou wilt. Only make me to know Thy will beyond
possibility of mistake, and work through me to accomplish all Thy
good pleasure. AMEN.

(Read C H Spurgeon's testimony

God with Us
"God shall be with you" (Genesis 48:21).
Good old Jacob could no more be with Joseph, for his hour had come to die:
but he left his son without anxiety, for he said with confidence, "God
shall be with you." When our dearest relations or our most helpful friends
are called home by death, we must console ourselves with the reflection
that the LORD is not departed from us but lives for us and abides with us
forever. If God be with us, we are in ennobling company, even though we
are poor and despised. If God be with us, we have all-sufficient strength,
for nothing can be too hard for the LORD. If God be with us, we are always
safe, for none can harm those who walk under His shadow. Oh, what a joy we
have here! Not only is God with us, but He will be with us. With us as
individuals; with us as families; with us as churches. Is not the very
name of Jesus, Immanuel -- God with us? Is not this the best of all, that
God is with us? Let us be bravely diligent and joyously hopeful. Our cause
must prosper, the truth must win, for the LORD is with those who are with
Him. All this day may this sweet word be enjoyed by every believer who
turns to "faith's checkbook." No greater happiness is possible.
MORNING AND EVENING
Morning, July 1
“In summer and in winter shall it be.”
The streams of living water which flow from Jerusalem are not
dried up by the parching heats of sultry midsummer any more than
they were frozen by the cold winds of blustering winter. Rejoice,
O my soul, that thou art spared to testify of the faithfulness of
the Lord. The seasons change and thou changest, but thy Lord
abides evermore the same, and the streams of his love are as deep,
as broad and as full as ever. The heats of business cares and
scorching trials make me need the cooling influences of the river
of His grace; I may go at once and drink to the full from the
inexhaustible fountain, for in summer and in winter it pours forth
its flood. The upper springs are never scanty, and blessed be the
name of the Lord, the nether springs cannot fail either. Elijah
found Cherith dry up, but Jehovah was still the same God of
providence. Job said his brethren were like deceitful brooks, but
he found his God an overflowing river of consolation. The Nile is
the great confidence of Egypt, but its floods are variable; our
Lord is evermore the same. By turning the course of the Euphrates,
Cyrus took the city of Babylon, but no power, human or infernal,
can divert the current of divine grace. The tracks of ancient
rivers have been found all dry and desolate, but the streams which
take their rise on the mountains of divine sovereignty and
infinite love shall ever be full to the brim. Generations melt
away, but the course of grace is unaltered. The river of God may
sing with greater truth than the brook in the poem—
“Men may come, and men may go,
But I go on forever.”
How happy art thou, my soul, to be led beside such still waters!
never wander to other streams, lest thou hear the Lord’s rebuke,
“What hast thou to do in the way of Egypt to drink of the muddy
Evening, July 1
““The voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of
My soul, now that the cool of the day has come, retire awhile and
hearken to the voice of thy God. He is always ready to speak with
thee when thou art prepared to hear. If there be any slowness to
commune it is not on his part, but altogether on thine own, for he
stands at the door and knocks, and if his people will but open he
rejoices to enter. But in what state is my heart, which is my
Lord’s garden? May I venture to hope that it is well trimmed and
watered, and is bringing forth fruit fit for him? If not, he will
have much to reprove, but still I pray him to come unto me, for
nothing can so certainly bring my heart into a right condition as
the presence of the Sun of Righteousness, who brings healing in
his wings. Come, therefore, O Lord, my God, my soul invites thee
earnestly, and waits for thee eagerly. Come to me, O Jesus, my
well-beloved, and plant fresh flowers in my garden, such as I see
blooming in such perfection in thy matchless character! Come, O my
Father, who art the Husbandman, and deal with me in thy tenderness
and prudence! Come, O Holy Spirit, and bedew my whole nature, as
the herbs are now moistened with the evening dews. O that God
would speak to me. Speak, Lord, for thy servant heareth! O that he
would walk with me; I am ready to give up my whole heart and mind
to him, and every other thought is hushed. I am only asking what
he delights to give. I am sure that he will condescend to have
fellowship with me, for he has given me his Holy Spirit to abide
with me forever. Sweet is the cool twilight, when every star seems
like the eye of heaven, and the cool wind is as the breath of
celestial love. My Father, my elder Brother, my sweet Comforter,
speak now in lovingkindness, for thou hast opened mine ear and I
am not rebellious.

THE LIFE OR THE LIGHT OF MEN
“In Him was life.”
—John 1:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18.
NOT merely a pool of life, but the well-spring. All rivers of enriching
vitality have their source in Him. Nowhere is there a crystal stream which
was not born at the Fountain. Let us make our claim for the Lord
all-comprehensive and inclusive. Whatever energizes body, mind, or soul,
has its origin in our Sovereign King. “All our springs are in Thee.” “Thou
of life the Fountain art.”
“And the life was the light of men.” And what did He not light up? His
amazing rays streamed down the darkest ways of men, and illumined the
vast, sombre chambers of human circumstance. He lit up sin and showed its
true colour! He lit up sorrow, and transfigured it! He lit up duty, and
gave it a new face. He lit up common work, and glorified it. He lit up
death, and we could see through it! But, above all, He lit up God, and
“the people that sat in darkness saw a great light.”
“And the darkness apprehended it not.” The darkness could not lay hold of
it and quench it! It was not overwhelmed and eclipsed by the murkiest fog
of prejudice, or by the dingiest antagonism of sinful pride. “The light
showeth in the darkness,” inviolable and invincible!
"Year Book" 1895
The LORD says, "I will restore what you lost to the stripping
locusts, the cutting locusts, the swarming locusts, and the
hopping locusts. It was I who sent this great destroying army
against you!" Joel 2:25
It is God who says, "I will restore." Only the divine hand can do
it. Christ is the restorer, for he has made atonement for us.
Wherever there is a Christian who is hurt by sin or sorrow—the
face of the Christ on the cross, beams on it with healing in its
beams. "By his stripes—we are healed." By his wounding—our wounds
are cured. His visage was marred—that the marring of sin in our
faces might be changed to beauty. By his sorrows—our sorrows are

Unreached People Group of the Day.
(1) GLOBAL PRAYER DIGEST
The Sakai people of central Sumatra are truly forgotten! They live
in a small, isolated area, along a river where fishing is their
primary source of income and food. They are far removed from any
cities. The people are poor, but in spite of that, they are happy.
The Sakai people carry ID cards that indicate that their religion
is Islam; but they are also animistic in their beliefs. For
example, each home has a large bird’s nest hanging above the door
to ward off evil spirits. The government still calls them Muslim,
and they built a mushollah (a small Islamic place of prayer) in
their village. But the Sakai eat pork, and they use the mushollah
only for educational activities.
A few years ago a church brought in some teachers and began an
elementary school in their community, which met in the mushollah.
The village leader said that they would not receive any help from
anyone. “We’ve been forgotten,” he said. But the children who had
never been to school before began to learn the basics of reading,
writing, and math. Then the government heard of the activities of
the church and quickly shut the school down. Then the government
sent teachers to the village, and now there is a school there; but
there is still very little spiritual light.
Pray for Jesus’ light to reach the forgotten Sakai people. Pray
for creativity for workers to find ways to reach this isolated
people group. Pray for spiritual interest and openness.
Acts 10:38, NASB You know of
Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and
with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who
were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
The Sakai people are very
remote, and they seem to be forgotten by the world. Yet they did
not escape the notice of the church that reached out to them in
the Name of Jesus.
Pray that others who know Jesus and are filled with His power to
go to these remote people. Pray for dreams and visions in this
untended harvest field!

Bryon Paulus, director
of Life Action Ministries, has said our greatest obstacle for
revival is failure to pray, to plead, to intercede, to cry out.
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
National wickedness will end
in the ruin of any people,

Sooner or later, sin will be
the ruin, as well as the reproach, of every people.
Oh that, being humbled for
we might avert the rising storm before it bursts upon us!
(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)

consider the things which belong to our eternal peace.
