Golden Text-“Take my yoke upon you and learn of me.”  Matt. 11:29.

We trust that all our readers who have been studiously pursuing the lessons of this quarter have indeed taken upon them the yoke of Christ, and that they have been learning of him, not only in an intellectual way, but also through the medium of the heart.  Not until we have taken the Lord into our daily life as our living, personal companion and confidential friend and counselor and comforter and guide, as well as our Redeemer and Lord, can we fully learn of him those precious lessons which give to his disciples a joy which the world can neither give nor take away.

          May this intimate communion and fellowship with Christ impart to us each more and more of his own spirit, so that the world may take knowledge of us, as they have of others (Acts 4:13), that we have been with Jesus; and let the prayer of each be,

     “Lord Jesus, make thyself to me

     A living, bright reality!

     More real to faith’s vision keen,

     Than any earthly object seen;

     More dear, more intimately nigh,

     Than e’en the sweetest earthly tie.”
