A union of believers with Christ will as a natural result lead to a union with one another, which bond of union is the most enduring upon earth. We are one in Christ, as Christ is one with the Father. Christians are branches, and only branches, in the living Vine. One branch is not to borrow its sustenance from another. Our life must come from the parent vine. It is only by personal union with Christ, by communion with Him daily, hourly, that we can bear the fruits of the Holy Spirit. {5T 47.3}

The Value Of A Soul

"What is the value of a soul?" I asked the Lord one day. "What is its
worth upon the earth? How much does one soul weigh?" Then He showed me a
set of scales, in perfect balance, there. And, as I watched, he filled
one side, with wealth beyond compare. 

There was silver, gold and jewels, so beautiful and rare. The different
treasures of the world, he quietly placed them there. My heart began to
tremble as I watched His nail scarred hands, For on the other side of
that great scale, I saw one single man. 

"Who is that man?" I asked Him, " that he should have such worth?" He
surely must be famous and the greatest man on earth. "Step closer, now,
and take a look," Jesus said to me. As I drew near, I recognized a man
I'd often seen. 

His clothes were old and ragged; in his hand he held a glass. He was our
city's poorest drunk, a man of lower class. "Lord, you don't know that
man," I said. "He's lived his life in vain. He'll bring disgrace into
the church and reproach upon your name." 

"I'd like to know him," Jesus said, "but he does not know me. But if
you'll help me reach him, then what a change you'll see. I'll take that
wretched, sinful life and cleanse it with my blood. And when he gives
his heart to me, I'll fill it with my love." 

"His soul cannot be purchased with the wealth you've seen today. But I
was sent to die for him; my blood has paid the way. He's my lost sheep,"
the Savior said, "And I love you both the same, But if you think he's
worthless, then I surely died in vain." 

"So when you look upon someone whose life is wrecked by sin, If you'll
just have compassion, then you'll share your brother's pain. You must
not look upon his past or what he seems to be. But look beyond his many
faults and know, I'll set him free." 

"Don't look at him as just a man and only see his shame, But see him as
a precious soul that I have died to save." "This earthly wealth," the
Savior said, "cannot draw men to me. But I paid a price upon the cross,
to set this whole world free.


Author Unknown

God has given man intellect and endowed him with capacities for improvement. Then let there be a strong taking hold upon God, a putting away of frivolity, amusement, and all uncleanness, and overcome all defects of character. Although there is a natural tendency to pursue a downward course, there is a power that will be brought to combine with man’s earnest effort. His will power will have a counteracting tendency. If he will combine with this divine help, he may resist the voice of the tempter. But Satan’s temptations harmonize with his defective, sinful tendencies and urge him to sin. All he has to do is to follow the leader Jesus Christ who will tell him just what to do. God beckons to you from His throne in heaven, presenting to you a crown of immortal glory, and bids you to fight the good fight of faith and run the race with patience. Trust in God every moment. He is faithful that leadeth forward. {Lt26d-1887.26}
