First gave their own selves to the Lord

By A.B. Simpson

      In order to be successful in Christian work, it is essential that a person be loyal not only to Go d but to the work with which he or she is associated. The more deeply a person knows the Lord, the easier it is for him to get along with others. Superficial Christians are apt to be eccentric. Mature Christians are so near the Lord that they are not afraid of missing His guidance. They are not always trying to promote their loyalty to God by their independence from others. The Corinthians, who had given themselves first to the Lord, had no difficulty in giving themselves to His apostle by the will of God. it is delightful to work with true hearts who can be utterly depended upon. May God give us the spirit of a sound mind and a heart to "help along." You can help by holy prayer, Helpful love and joyful song; Oh, the burdens you may bear; Oh, the sorrows you may share; Oh, the crowns you may yet wear, If you help along.
