[July 27]
Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; show forth his salvation from day to day, declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people. Psalm 96:2, 3
ALL who are of the truth hear the truth, and love to bear witness to the truth. Yet in our case, as in the Master's case, the world knoweth us not. It knows us not because it knew him not. The world, especially the religious world of Christendom, is disposed to crucify us as it crucified him, only we are living in a more civilized time, and the scribes, the Pharisees, and the doctors of the Law apparently find it more difficult today than of old to incite the people to destroy our lives. But by God's grace we will continue to bear witness to the truth until the dark night comes "wherein no man can work," should our lives be spared till then. Z'16-151 R5898:6(Hymn Appendix H)
