For Wednesday July 13, 2022:

ROMANS 15:3

Romans 15:3 (NKJV)
For even Christ did not please Himself.

Let this be a day of self-forgetting ministry for Christ and others. Let us not once think of being ministered unto, but say ever with Him: “I am among you as He that doth serve.” Let us not drag our burdens through the day, but drop all our loads of care and be free to carry His yoke and His burden. Let us make the happy exchange, giving ours and taking His. Let the covenant be: “Thou shalt abide for Me, I also for thee.” So shall we lose our heaviest load—ourselves—and so shall we find our highest joy, divine love, the more blessed “to give” than “to receive.” Let us do good to all men as we have opportunity. Let us lose no opportunity of blessing, and let us study ingenious ways of service and usefulness. Especially let us seek to win souls.

The Days of Heaven are busy days,
   They serve continually,
So spent for Thee and Thine, our days,
   As the Days of Heaven would be.

The Days of Heaven are loving days,
   As one they all agree,
So linked in loving unity
   May our days as Heaven be.
