“What the world calls virtue is a name and a dream without Christ. The foundation of all human excellence must be laid deep in the blood of the Redeemer’s cross, and in the power of His resurrection.”

FW Robertson

“You reap what you sow — not something else, but that. An act of love makes the soul more loving. A deed of humbleness deepens humbleness. The thing reaped is the very thing sown, multiplied a hundred fold. You have sown a seed of life, you reap life everlasting.”
― F.W. Robertson

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked:
for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”
Galatians 6:7

THE PRAYER OF THE WATCHMAN

THE PRAYER OF THE WATCHMAN

“Consider and hear me,
O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes,
lest I sleep the sleep of death”
PSALM 13:3

In the day of trial, as the Bridegroom tarries and the lamps of the virgins burn late into the night, the vigilant pray and fight the sleep of death. It is a slumber that creeps over the hearts of His Own in the waning hours of the night. The true test of faith is to remain watchful, diligent and caring for others until He returns. It is in occupying ourselves in the service of Him that we remain faithful to the testings of the night. Having our lamps trimmed, our hearts awake and our eyes looking for Him we continue to “contend for the faith” that was given unto us.

“Blessed is the man that heareth me,
watching daily at my gates,
waiting at the posts of my doors”
PROVERBS 8:34

The danger of the sleep of death is one of subtlety and deceit. Those who are held in its grip are unaware that it has taken hold. It is in the occupation of ministering unto Him, as we give bread to our brothers and sisters that we stay in the battle of this hour.

“Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep;
and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.”
PROVERBS 19:15

Ω

“It is perilous to separate thinking rightly, from acting rightly.
He is already half false who speculates on truth and does not do it.
The penalty paid by him who speculates on truth without doing it,
is, that by degrees the very truth he holds becomes a falsehood”
FW Robertson
