A Precious Promise
We are always ready to bring up to date Paul's words to Timothy, "In the last days perilous times shall come." Why then, should we be slow of heart in bringing up to date the words of Peter, "It shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh"?
If, through neglect or dullness of our faith, this precious promise has lost some of its brightness, then let us set to work and by faith and prayer polish it up, and in the power of the Holy Spirit, lift this truth beside the dark outlook of today and it will inspire us with fresh hope and courage and prevent our love from waxing cold in the presence of abounding iniquity (Zech. 10:1; Hosea 6:3; 10:12; Rev. 5:6).
