I’m Not Growing Old
They say that I am growing old

WHEN A CHRISTIAN GROWS
Dr. Bonar once remarked that he could tell when a Christian was growing. In proportion to his growth in grace he would elevate his Master, talk less of what he was doing, and become smaller and smaller in his own esteem, until, like the morning star, he faded away before
