The year 2014 is here, and we heartily wish that the happiness which really abides-the happiness which flows from the knowledge and service of God-may be the continual portion of all our readers.
You and I are ever being pressed forward. One day at a time we speed on our way to eternity; little by little, the record of our lives is carried to the judgment-seat. Shall we not pause a moment on the threshold of the New Year, and ask ourselves-"Where shall I spend that eternity? What account shall I render to God?"
Only the present is ours, and even it is hurrying from our grasp. Now alone is with us, whether for salvation or for service. May we seek to employ today aright.
Use today to do the will of God, dear believer. You and I are permitted to remain on earth, that we may perform His pleasure. May we live for this today and ever.
Believer, hear the voice of your Saviour and Lord saying, "Son, go work today in My vineyard" (Matthew 21:28).
Dear Friends, Our hearts are full of thanksgiving to the Lord, who is the Faithful and True, for His good hand upon us in the past twelve years. To you, dear reader, who is praying for Toward the Mark and to those who are helping in producing this exercise, you are known by the Lord and He is the reward of your quiet labor of love. It is our prayer that the Lord will use Toward the Mark to strengthen, encourage, and help you to be established as we are dependent on Him to feed and strengthen His people. Thank you for your overwhelming response and encouragement to this exercise. Please keep us in prayers.
Yours in our soon-coming Lord,
Emil S. Nashed
