[July 4]
Thou hast given a banner to them that fear Thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Psalm 60:4
WE ARE to tell forth this glorious message. We are to tell it in our actions, in our words, by the printed page, by pictorial presentations to the eye, and in every way that the Lord shall give us the opportunity....If we refrain from telling the glad tidings, the result will be that the fire of God's Holy Spirit will become extinguished within us. The possession of the truth —God's message—brings with it great responsibility. Shall we prove faithful to it? Shall we show to our God our deep appreciation of his loving-kindness in granting us the knowledge of his wonderful message of salvation, his glorious plan, with its times and seasons? Z'14-198 R5489:5(Hymn 280)
