THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
There was an incident which happened to William McKinley when
he was running for president.
A very ill-dressed and irritating reporter, with an awful cough,
followed Mr. McKinley every where he went.
The reporter was constantly writing to demean Mr. McKinley.
One evening, McKinley was riding in a closed carriage to a place
where he was to speak.
He heard the easily recognized cough of the reporter.
It seemed the reporter was up on the top of the carriage, riding
with the driver.
McKinley called for the carriage to stop, and demanded that the
man come down.
Thinking the worst, the man came down meekly.
Then, McKinley gave him his overcoat and said,
“You get in the carriage with me.”
The man replied, “But you must not know who I am. I’m the
reporter that’s been giving you a hard time.”
McKinley said, “Yes. But you put on this coat, get inside and
get warm, so you can do a good job!”
2 Tim 2:1
Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
Light from the WORD.
Grace from God is constantly poured out.
To receive and “be strong” in that grace means to remain
in the flow.
Christ is the “Head,” and we are the “body.”(Col. 1:18)
The flow of grace begins with Him, and flows freely to those
who are attached.
God’s grace begins with pardon, then moves to cleansing, preserving,
strengthening, encouraging, and enlightening.
And ALL that is FREE!
Jesus already paid the price!
There are several ways to remain in the flow:
daily Bible study,
Ministering to others.
To be STRONG in the grace of God, one must REMAIN
in the flow.
