Signs of the Times

Rev. John A. Burgess in the Middleboro Gazette, Massachusetts

The pages of the Bible and the record of Christian history contain numerous accounts of men who lived in close contact with God. This close contact with God supplied them with courage, strength, wisdom, and joy in their hour of need. David's courage, which sent him out against great odds, did not materialize in a moment. It was cultivated during the years when, as a shepherd boy, he learned to trust in God for the needs of every day. Abraham did not always possess the faith that prompted him to follow God's commands without question. His weak faith grew through the years as he walked with God. . . .
