Never read God’s will concerning you without honestly giving up yourself to do it at once, and asking grace to do so.  God has given us His Word, to tell us what He wants us to do and what grace He has provided to enable us to do it: how sad to think it a pious thing just to read that Word without any earnest effort to obey it!  May God keep us from this terrible sin!  Let us make it a sacred habit to say to God, ‘Lord, whatever I know to be Thy will, I will at once obey.‘ Ever read with a heart yielded up in willing obedience.
