The object of this little book is first of all to remind all Christian workers of the greatness and the glory of the work in which God gives a share. It is nothing less than that work of bringing men back to their God, at which God finds His highest glory and blessedness.

Words of God for young Disciples of Christ.
Are you willing to surrender yourselves absolutely into His hands? What is our answer to be?
May He teach us to believe that in union with Him the Christ-like life is indeed for us.

The publication of this work may be regarded as a testimony of my faith in divine healing. After being stopped for more than two years in the exercise of my ministry, I was healed by the mercy of God in answer to the prayer of those who see in Him “the Lord that healeth thee” (Exodus 15:26).
