Sermons Without Words - J. R. Miller


Sermons without words

(J. R. Miller, "In Green Pastures")

When you are tempted to chafe and repine at
the narrowness of your circumstances, and the
limitations of your sphere--remember that for
thirty years, Jesus found room in a humble
peasant home for worthy living and for service,
not unfitted to His exalted character.

If you can do nothing but live a true Christian
life--patient, gentle, kindly, pure--in your home,
in society, at your daily duty--you will perform
a service of great value, and leave many blessings
in the world. Such a life is a little gospel, telling
in sermons without words--the wonderful story
of the cross of Christ.

"Let your light shine before men--that they
may see your good deeds and praise your
Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16
