with Gospel of Peace
your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Eph. 6:15
The Lord is soon coming. Talk it, pray
it, believe it. Make it a part of the life. You will have to meet a doubting,
objecting spirit, but this will give way before firm, consistent trust in God.
When perplexities or hindrances present themselves, lift the soul to God in
songs of thanksgiving. Gird on the Christian armor, and be sure that your feet
are "shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace."
We are living in the midst of an
"epidemic of crime," at which thoughtful, God-fearing men everywhere
stand aghast. The corruption that prevails, it is beyond the power of the human
pen to describe. Every day brings fresh revelations of political strife,
bribery, and fraud. Every day brings its heart-sickening record of violence and
lawlessness, of indifference to human suffering, of brutal, fiendish
destruction of human life. Every day testifies to the increase of insanity,
murder, and suicide. Who can doubt that satanic agencies are at work among men
with increasing activity to distract and corrupt the mind and defile and
destroy the body? . . .
Everywhere there are hearts crying out
for something which they have not. They long for a power that will give them
mastery over sin, a power that will deliver them from the bondage of evil, a
power that will give health and life and peace. Many who once knew the power of
God's Word have dwelt where there is no recognition of God, and they long for
the divine presence.
The world needs today what it needed
nineteen hundred years ago--a revelation of Christ.
For earth's sin and misery the gospel is
the only antidote.
