Pass It On

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

If you are a Christ follower, eternal truth has entered your heart and subdued the whole man to itself. Once there, no power whatsoever — human or infernal — can dislodge it. That’s because it is not merely a house guest, but, rather, the master of the house. To reject that is to reject the very power of the Gospel.

Those who have experienced that truth know the Holy Spirit who opens, appropriates, and seals the Word of God in them. They would rather be torn to pieces than be torn away from their salvation. 

It’s true we outgrow some truths because they are elementary lessons for “baby” Christians. But that is not the case with divine truth. While it births and sustains “babes,” it is strong meat for mature Christ followers too. Wherever this truth is found, we acknowledge that it will remain until we hear the Pearly Gates click behind us!

That’s why we broadcast the Good News. It cannot remain wrapped in silence. We are emboldened and empowered by the same Spirit who brought the truth to us. Above all our concerns in life, let’s love, as Christ did, and pass the truth along. The last stanza of Pass It On says it well:

I wish for you my friend, this happiness that I've found
You can depend on Him, it matters not where you're bound
I'll shout it from the mountain tops
I want the world to know
The Lord of love has come to me
I want to pass it on

I am writing to the chosen lady and to her children, whom I love in the truth … because the truth lives in us and will be with us forever.. 2 John 1-2
