“The Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken” (Prov. 3:26).
How much the Christian needs the upholding and overruling grace of God, to “keep thy foot from being taken.” The world, the flesh, and the devil constantly seek to ensnare us and cause our feet to go astray out of God’s paths. He tells us to “ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil,” for He assures us who seek to walk with Him, “I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straightened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.” “For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.” “He will keep the feet of His saints,” and “thou shalt walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.” “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” “The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.” “Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.” “For Thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not Thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?”
He alone can direct my steps
In the way they ought to go,
To keep from the snares of Satan,
All because He loves me so.

“If Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness” (Rom. 8:10).
We Christians have the same kind of unredeemed bodies as unsaved people have. To be sure, “your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own.” Nevertheless, we still have mortal death-doomed bodies, subject to injury and disease and aging. “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body,” and “if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.” “For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.” So “we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body,” and “in my flesh shall I see God: whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another.”
We live now in tents of clay,
Mortal and very frail,
But we live in hope each day,
Here below in this vale.

“We have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin” (Heb. 4:15).
There are certain things that are essential, if we are to be saved. There are things which are absolutely necessary; they cannot be dispensed with. First, there must be a Saviour “without sin.” This we have in God’s beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, “who did no sin,” “who knew no sin,” “and in Him is no sin.” Even so, His holiness and sinlessness cannot in itself save us, for “without shedding of blood is no remission.” It was necessary that He give that sinless life for us, that we might be “redeemed … with the precious blood of Christ, as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot.” Then, though He died for all, forgiveness must be personally received, and here we have another essential, namely, faith. “But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” Be sure, dear reader, that you have personally received “the gift of God [which] is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord,” who said that “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”
He shed His blood for your sins,
That you might forgiven be,
That you might know and praise Him
Throughout all eternity.

“He faileth not” (Zeph. 3:5).
“Thy mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; and Thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds,” “all Thy commandments are faithful,” and “God is true” and worthy of all our confidence and trust. “God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?” “There hath no temptation taken you, but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” But suppose that we who know Him do not take His “way to escape,” and we yield to the temptation? Even “if we believe not, yet He abideth faithful: He cannot deny Himself.” And “if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” This “God, that cannot lie, promised.” “But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.” “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand forever.” “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness.”
He is faithful and true to His Word,
Our God in heaven above;
His ways are tempered with kindness;
His dealings are all in love.

“Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures.” “Christ is … entered into … heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.” “We look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body” (1 Cor. 15:3; Heb. 9:24; Phil. 3:20-21).
From start to finish, our “salvation is of the Lord.” He died for us on the cross, he lives for us in heaven, and He is coming to receive us unto Himself. “Christ died for our sins.” “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God,” for “all we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” Yes, “Christ … died, yea rather … is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.” He has “entered into … heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.” “Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.” And we have His sure promise that “if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” “Salvation belongeth unto the Lord: Thy blessing is upon Thy people.”
His blood has washed away my sins,
And now He liveth for me,
And He shall come to take me home,
Forever with Him to be.

“That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God” (Col. 1:10).
God desires for His children that we “walk worthy of the Lord” in our daily deportment, being “fruitful … and increasing in the knowledge of God.” A yielded “walk” with the Lord will cause us to be “fruitful” and to hunger for an “increasing … knowledge of God.” “Walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, with all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering, forbearing one another in love.” “We also should walk in newness of life,” “worthy of God, who hath called you unto His kingdom and glory,” “being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.” Such a Christian will “be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” Our Lord said that “herein is My Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be My disciples.” A disciple is a learner, and the fruitful Christian will be “increasing in the knowledge of God.” “Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,” and “desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.”
A walk that shows that we know Him,
And fruit borne for His glory,
An “increasing … knowledge of God,”
Tell forth the blessed story.

“We love Him, because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19).
Our love for the Lord seems so small and feeble compared to His love for us. To His own He says that “I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn thee,” and “God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” He “who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved),” and now, being redeemed, we have “the love of God … shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.” But little as our love may seem compared to His, we do “love Him, because He first loved us,” and we say with David, “I will love Thee, O Lord, my strength.” “For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: and that He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again,” and “eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.” Our Lord said, “If ye love Me, keep My commandments.” “Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity.”
“We love Him because … He loved us,”
And gave His live to prove so;
“The love of Christ constraineth us”
To take the place that is low.

“Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God” (Rom. 12:2).
God wants His children to be different from those who do not know Him, “that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,” and “our Lord Jesus Christ … gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father.” God has told His children to “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” “Be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord,” “as obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance,” and “be not ye therefore like unto them,” “but as He which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation.” For “our Saviour Jesus Christ … gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”
God wants our lives to be different
From those who know Him not,
“Transformed by … renewing of … mind”
That His name we may not blot.

“We all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord” (2 Cor. 3:18).
When God looks upon His redeemed people, He does not look for success or wealth or fame or popularity with men. Rather, He looks for Christ-likeness in our lives, that Christ-likeness of life and character which comes to us as we look upon Christ as He is revealed in the Word of God, “with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord.” God’s ultimate purpose for the saved is that we may be “conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren,” and “we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is,” “and as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.” So in our lives now, God desires to impart “the meekness and gentleness of Christ,” who is “meek and lowly in heart.” “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ,” enabling us to “show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
Called to reflect the Lord Jesus,
And called to show forth His praise,
Called to behold Him in His Word,
And walk with Him all our days.

“The Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).
Where is “the Spirit of the Lord” in this present day? For “where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” He is in us who have believed on Christ as Saviour, all of us. “What! Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” This is in fulfillment of our Lord’s promise that “I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you forever; even the Spirit of truth,” and “if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His.” And the Spirit in us gives us “liberty,” even freedom from sin’s dominion, from the yoke of the law, and from self-centeredness. “Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.” “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” Our Lord Jesus said that “if ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” “But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumbling-block to them that are weak.”
Liberty to serve the Lord,
Liberty to live for Him,
Made free by His redemption
From the dominion of sin.
