Gospel Workers 1892, Page 451

The thought should be ever present with us that we must meet the record of our lives, that we are building character for eternity. The influence of our words and acts will live, and will decide the destiny of souls. Angels of God are writing the history of our lives; let us be careful that the record is such as we shall not be ashamed to meet when the Judgment shall sit, and we shall receive according to the deeds done in the body. GW92 451.1

If we are living branches of the True Vine, we shall bear fruit to the glory of God. “By their fruits ye shall know them.” [Matthew 7:20.] GW92 451.2

Diligence and Consecration Needed

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free Spirit. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.” [Psalm 51:10-13.] GW92 451.3

This is one of the most earnest and contrite prayers on record, and the Lord's response is, “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you.” [Ezekiel 36:26.] GW92 451.4

“Create in me a clean heart.” This is beginning right, at the very foundation of Christian character; for out of the heart are the issues of life. If all, ministers and people, would see to it that their hearts are right with God, we should see much larger results from the labor put forth. The more important and responsible your work, the greater the necessity that you have clean hearts. The GW92 451.5
