Precious Jesus

"Afresh, precious, precious Jesus, I resign this body to You, for doing or suffering, for living or dying. Will You accept it? Will You use me for Your glory more than heretofore, that You may have some little return for all the benefits You have done to me? Oh, do grant this request; my heart longs for it, my spirit pleads for it; and "if You will, You can." You know the hot temptation of which I am the subject. Bring Your glory out of it, and keep me from the evil, and it shall be well." - Ruth Bryan

The daily business of the Christian

The daily business of a Christian is to . . .
  resist the devil,
  deny himself,
  overcome the world,
  crucify the flesh with its affections and lusts,
  imitate Christ,
  walk with God.
