[Manna - July 18]
In the last days perilous times shall come. Men shall be traitors, heady,...lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. 2 Timothy 3:1,4
THE true Christian is not "heady;" on the contrary, his consecration to the Lord figuratively decapitated him. He lost his head, renounced his own will and self-rule, and submitted himself as a member of the body of Christ, to the absolute control of Jesus, the Head....The true Christian, therefore, in every affair of life,--in respect to its pleasures as well as in respect to its burdens and trials,--appeals to his Head for direction, to know how and what to do or say--yea, to have even the very thoughts of his mind in full conformity to the will of God in Christ. Z.'99-102 R2461:1
