"And ye yourselves like men that wait for their Lord" (Luke 12:36).
Another year is gone and a new one begins. One more year of the wilderness journey with God; so much nearer the blessed hour when the commanding voice of our Lord will be heard raising His dead ones, changing His living ones, and translating all into the Father's house, our eternal home. Blessed hope fills our hearts with cheer! May we indeed be "as men who wait for their Lord"! Let us redeem the time. Let us not sleep as do others. Let us remember that in all the eternity of bliss which awaits us we shall no more have the opportunity of proclaiming His grace to sinners, of feeding and caring for His sheep and His lambs, of spending and being spent to spread the knowledge of His blessed name. Let us use no idle word and have no idle hours. Let us seek nothing for ourselves-all for Christ, who only is worthy of all our love, all our obedience, and all our self-denial.
As we start the twelfth year of publishing the magazine we can not help but bow and give thanks to the Lord. How He sustained us from the beginning of the exercise and provided what is needed for every issue. Over one hundred thousand have viewed it over the internet thus far. Hard copies are also mailed to over thirty countries all over the world. I am grateful to those faithful ones, my co-workers (Romans 16:1-16) who work very hard to help in editing and proofreading, those who contribute sound articles, and those who have been a source of help and encouragement to me in its production. The Lord knows them and He will reward them. Special thanks to you, dear readers, for your prayers and notes of encouragement. We love to hear from all of you.
Please keep praying for the Lord's blessing on Toward the Mark.
Yours in our soon-coming Lord,
Emil S. Nashed
