“Freely ye have received, freely give” Matthew 10:8. “Give, and it will be given to you” Luke 6:38.
“We can impart only that which we receive from Christ; and we can receive only as we impart to others. As we continue imparting, we continue to receive; and the more we impart, the more we shall receive.

Let us heed the counsel of the True Witness, and the Lord will work for us and with us. Even though the enemies of present truth may abound, we have One mightier Who will be our helper.
