Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“He wakeneth morning by morning, He wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned” (Isa 50:4).

Before we can learn to speak we need to learn to hear or listen. “He wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned”. It is strange to find that while learned people are willing to hear and learn more, unlearned people are often unwilling to learn or listen.

“My sheep hear My voice…and they follow Me,” says Jesus (Jn 10:27). Let us ask the Master to open our ears to hear His tender voice, for only then can we follow Him in His footsteps.

“He wakeneth morning by morning.” It is early in the morning that the Lord speaks to us, giving us instructions and orders for the day’s activities, and warning us of dangers that lie ahead. “I spake unto you rising up early and speaking,” the Lord repeatedly told the Israelites.

It was not once in a way that Jesus woke up in the morning. It was His constant practice to, “rise up a great while before day,” and go out … and pray (Mk 1:35). No pupil in the school of God’s wisdom comes out as a true saint without learning the discipline of RISING UP EARLY IN THE MORNING. After a whole day’s long and tiresome journeying on foot and its hectic activities, it must have been very difficult for Jesus to rise up very early in the morning, but our Lord “was not rebellious, neither turned away back” (Isa 50:5).

Let us retrace the footsteps of our Master in the BEST COLLEGE OF THEOLOGY to become a blessing to millions!
