In the presence of God

(J. R. Miller, "Paul's Message for Today" 1904)

"In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead . . . I charge you!" 2 Timothy 4:1

Life is very serious!

We are always standing before God who is our Judge.

Our commonest days—are judgment days.

We should learn to do everything "in the presence of God". This makes every word and act serious.

If only we were more conscious of God and of eternity—we would live better!
