God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
I Cor. 17, 9.
Give me a new, a perfect heart.
From doubt, and fear, and sorrow free;
The mind which was in Christ impart.
And let my spirit cleave to Thee.
SINCE I attained to a clear consciousness, by inward experience, that there is no way of satisfying the needs of the soul, or tranquillizing the heart’s longings, but by the inner life in Christ, I am aware of an increase of power for the work of my calling, whatever it be, and of joy and spirit in performing it.
Christian K. J. Bunsen.
In my daily life I am to ask “How would Christ have acted in my circumstances? How would He have me act ? How would Christ fulfil my duties, do my work, fill my place, meet my difficulties, turn to account all my capacities and opportunities?” This is to be the law and inspiration of my whole life; not only of my outward acts, but of all my inward thoughts and desires. There is to be a manifestation of the Divine Nature in me.
