The Fountain and Friend

“Without Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5

Never attempt anything without looking to Jesus for power. You cannot—He can. You have destroyed yourself—in Him is your help found. It is only by receiving from Him, that you can . . .

  • glorify God,
  • adorn your profession,
  • enjoy your privileges,
  • obey the holy precepts of the gospel.

Jesus is the Fountain from which you are to draw all your supplies, and the Friend to whom you are to carry all your cares.

“Casting all your care upon Him, because He cares about you!” 1 Peter 5:7

Live at the feet of Jesus

“Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and was listening to what He said.” Luke 10:39

Let not then the many trifles of time affect, distract, and bewilder you; but let the one thing needful be the constant object of pursuit and desire.

  • Live at the feet of Jesus—and you are safe.
  • Seek, above all things, to enjoy Jesus—and you will be happy.
  • Aim in all things to glorify Jesus—and you will be holy.
  • Look daily for the coming of Jesus—and you will be consistent.
  • O Jesus! manifest Yourself to me; draw me to Your feet, and keep me there!

Seek to  . . . 
  know Him, love Him, believe Him, obey Him and enjoy Him!
