• “How sweet is close, confidential communion with Jesus! How fully we can then unveil all our hearts to Him; disclosing every secret; making known every need; and bringing our hidden enemies, our corruptions, to Him, that He might slay them before our eyes!” – Mary Winslow

Joy and Strength 01/24

The throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and His servants shall serve Him ; and they shall see His face; and His name shall be in their foreheads.
Rev. xxii. 3, 4.

And doubtless unto thee is given
A life that bears immortal fruit
In such great offices as suit
The full-grown energies of heaven.
Alfred Tennyson.

IF we are to be thus disciplined and trained, as workmen in various orders of work, instruments thus formed for God’s service, what may we look to become hereafter? May not instruments thus formed, when this passing scene is over, and we appear in God’s presence, cleansed and disciplined, with the true workman’s hand, may we not be set to work in higher spheres, in grander ministries, in a world of nobler service? We speak of heaven as a sort of rest, of sweet consolation, of communion with God, such as we cannot know on earth; but consistently with this perfect sweetness, heaven is full of activity, of ministrations infinite. For God is active, and out of His activity He formed all creatures. As in^ the deep seas in their endless movements there is calm beneath, so in God are depths of peace as infinite as the activity of His creation. So, too. His creatures partake of infinite peace and intensely active service.
T. T. Carter.

  • “Christ makes it clear that we cannot love both Him and the things that charm and ravish this world. We cannot be dazzled by the images of pop-culture and captivated by the King of all kings” – Leslie Ludy

Verse of the Day

For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor. — Romans 13:6-7 (NKJV)
