Scripture at Sunrise 01.05.2023

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” -John 10:27

“It is not for the flock of sheep to know the pasture the Shepherd has in mind. It is for them simply to follow Him.” -Elisabeth Elliot via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 12.8.2015

“If any man serve Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there shall also My servant be: if any man serve Me, him will My Father honor.” -John 12:26

The highest service is imitation. If I would be Christ’s servant I must be His follower. To do as Jesus did is the surest way of bringing honor to His name. Let me mind this every day.

If I imitate Jesus I shall have His company: if I am like Him I shall be with Him. In due time He will take me up to dwell with Him above, if, meanwhile, I have striven to follow Him here below. After His suffering our Lord came to His throne, and even so, after we have suffered a while with Him here below, we also shall arrive in glory. The issue of our Lord’s life shall be the issue of ours: if we are with Him in His humiliation we shall be with Him in His glory. Come, my soul, pluck up courage and put down thy feet in the blood-marked footprints which thy Lord has left thee.

Let me not fail to note that the Father will honor those who follow His Son. If He sees me true to Jesus, He will put marks of favor and honor upon me for His Son’s sake. No honor can be like this. Princes and emperors bestow the mere shadows of honor; the substance of glory comes from the Father. Wherefore, my soul, cling thou to thy Lord Jesus more closely than ever.

[from Faith’s Checkbook by Charles H. Spurgeon]

Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us. -Philippians 3:17

It is important to mark good examples to pattern your life after. Who can you mark as godly examples? People are marking you even though you may not realize it. Are you a godly example?

We, the people at the Next Conference, trust you had a wonderful day in the Lord at New Life yesterday! 

Since the church secretary is presently in Baltimore for the conference, there was no way she could post her notes from yesterday’s New Life messages as she normally does every Monday on the blog. 

Therefore, she leaves you with a few links from what the Next-ers have been hearing over the past few days.  You are encouraged to leave YOUR notes from today’s NLBC messages in the comment section!  🙂
