Joy and Strength 07/02

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent His only begotten Son into the worldy that we might live through Him.
1 John iv. 9.

Thy love to me, O God,
Not mine, O Lord, to Thee,
Can rid me of this dark unrest,
And set my spirit free.
HORATIUS BONAR.

THE spirit of prayer is a pressing forth jof the soul out of this earthly life, it is a stretching with all its desire after the life of God, it is a leaving, as far as it can, all its own spirit, to receive a spirit from above, to be one life, one love, one spirit with Christ in God. For the love which God bears to the soul. His eternal, never-ceasing desire to enter into it, and to dwell in it, stays no longer than till the door of the heart opens for Him. For nothing does, or can keep God out of the soul, or hinder His holv union with it, but the desire of the heart turned from Him.
William Law.

Holiness is the beauty of the Lord God ot hosts. Thou canst not separate the one from the other. To have it, thou must have Him. Nor will it be hard to obtain either; for He longs to enter into thy being. Thy longing is the faint response of thy heart to His call.
F. B. Meyer.
