To have Jesus ever near.

To have Jesus ever near. Ephesians 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith. You cannot get a subject closer to you than to have it in the heart itself. That He may dwell, not that He may call upon you sometimes, as a casual visitor enters into a house and tarries for a night, but that He may dwell; that Jesus may become Lord and Tenant of your inmost being, never more to go out.

All the day long. Psalm 42:8 Yet the Lord will command his lovingkindness in the day time, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life. Our life would be radically change, if the reality of the Lord being with us all day would set in. Recognizing He is near would help our thinking, therefore our actions would change and sinners would see Christ instead of seeing self. Stop and realize He is with you all day each day.

LOVE AND LABOR Lovest thou me?…Feed my sheep. John 21:16 Our Lord joins love and labor. Our service for Him is a “labor of love” (I Thess. 1:3), a labor growing out of love. We should feed not only the sheep He has, but other sheep that He seeks we should help to bring into the fold. Our Lord never thought of relationship to Him that does not issue in fruitfulness for Him. If we abide in Him we shall bring forth much fruit (Jno. 15:5). He that is with Him gathers with Him. He had no thought of fellowship without fruitfulness. We are married to Another, that we might bring forth unto God (Rom. 7:4). There is no place in Scripture for this type of church member who sings, “O How I Love Jesus,” but feeds no sheep; who sings, “Rescue the Perishing,” but does no rescue work himself. “He that hath my commandments and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me.” “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” Because we love we labor. -Havner-
