Content not yourselves ...

"Content not yourselves with being in a state of grace, but be also careful that your graces are kept in vigorous and lively exercise ..." Richard Baxter in The Reformed Pastor.

Take a moment this morning to consider if indeed you are keeping your graces in a vigorous and lively manner. Are you pursuing Christ in the myriad of means He has made available to you? Are you devoting your time to the cultivation of your inner man? Are you reading, thinking, talking, and singing about the glorious gospel? Find ways, be they ever so brief or seemingly insignificant, to exercise and inflame the work of God in your life. Today is a good day for that!
