Act 2:46,47  And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and
breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and
singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And
the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

Continuing daily....

I am often surprised that Christians who have listened for years (apparently with
interest and attention) to the ministry of the Word know so little of divine things.
They seem to enjoy the ministry, their faces are bright in the meetings, and yet
when you come to talk to them you find that very little of it has got into their
souls. I believe the secret is that they listen to what is said, but value it so little
that they do not take the trouble of going to the Scriptures to verify it for
themselves. Ministry has its own blessed and important place, but I do not
believe any ministry will be of permanent profit to our souls if it is not followed
searching of the Scriptures. They received the word with all readiness of
mind, and searched the scriptures daily

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they
received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures
, whether those things were so.

Are we on the alert to improve our acquaintance with Christ? The great defect
of modern Christianity is that there is so
little affection for Christ. Many hear
what is called a clear gospel, and trusting the Person and work of Christ they get
the assurance of the Scriptures that they will never perish, and this seems to
satisfy them and they settle down upon it and go to sleep. There is not the
earnest longing after Himself, the watching daily at His gates. Did it ever occur
to you that Christ values your affections? You belong to Him; you are the
object of His love; you are His own. Your heart is Christ’s property. Is it
His dwelling place?
"Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my
gates, waiting at the posts of my doors"
(Prov. 8:34).

Christendom is full of solemn warnings as to the tendency of our hearts to drop
into a
routine of religious forms. It is a very great loss to the soul to get into the
habit of repeating substantially the same words in prayer every day. It is not real
prayer at all.
Today is not like yesterday, and tomorrow will not be like
today. If you are really with God you will be sensitive to the fresh needs of
every day.
God delights to have our confidence as to every need and care.
Then let us cultivate a child’s confidence, and a child’s simplicity as we
come to Him in prayer. Bring the trying circumstances of today, and the
expected difficulties and perplexities of tomorrow. Psalm 86:3 says,
merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee

What have you had from the Lord today? You may say that you have been
reading a very good book, and part of one of the periodicals. I am glad to hear
it, but did you get anything from the Lord? Again you may say that you have
read one or two chapters in the Bible. I am very thankful for that, but still you
might read many chapters without getting anything from the Lord to meet the
present need of your soul. Food is that which satisfies a craving (a felt need)
and unless we have an appetite there is not even the desire for it. The food of
which I speak is the gracious supply to our souls of that which answers the
exercises, and meets the need of which we become conscious in our experience
day by day. I do not mean your external need, but the need of your heart and
spirit, in the various experiences of your soul. May the Lord preserve us from
becoming insensible to our daily need that His love delights to supply as our
daily bread. Matthew 6:11  
Give us this day our daily bread.

To bear the cross is to accept the reproach of being connected with that which
is mean and despicable in the eyes of men. The daily cross is not bodily
affection or the ordinary trials of life, as so many suppose, for these things are
not peculiar to Christians, they are the common lot of mankind.
The daily cross
is the acceptance day by day of a path
and a portion which, so far as this
world goes, is one of dishonor and reproach.
If we are true to Christ, it will
involve the surrender of much that we naturally esteem
- the praise of men,
and the honors of life in this world. You may be sure that every bit of real
testimony for Christ will cost you something.
"If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself, and take up his cross
daily, and follow me" (Lk. 9:23).

There is a constant tendency in our hearts to be discouraged because of the
way. I am afraid that many souls backslide and drift away simply because we
are not near enough to the Lord, and have not sufficient affection to give them a
word of encouragement. You must keep your eye on that which is of God in the
saints, and lay yourself out to encourage that. There is something which is of
God in every saint; it may be very weak and small, but we must build on and
encourage that. We must count on the work of God in the souls of His saints,
and seek to help and encourage that which is of Himself in every way. Let none
of us think that this is only for teachers and ministers of the Word. This applies
to every one of us in our individual contact with each other. "
But exhort
(encourage) one another daily" (Heb. 3:13).


Hebrews 12:2  
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame,
and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
