Joy and Strength 04/15

And I, if I be lifted up from the earthy will draw all men unto Me.
John xii 32.

We know that, when He shall appear, we shall he like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.
I John iii. 2.

For if Christ be born within.
Soon that likeness shall appear
Which the soul had lost through sin,
God’s own image fair and clear.
And the soul serene and bright
Mirror back His heavenly light.
Laurentius Laurenti. 1700.

LORD, never was a magnet so powerful to draw to itself the hard steel, as Thou, the Lord, lifted up on the cross, art powerful to draw unto Thee the hearts of men. O beloved Lord, draw me through joy and sorrow, from all that is in the world to Thee and to Thy cross; form me, and shape me into Thine image here below, that I may enjoy Thee eternally in the glory whither Thou art gone.
Henry Suso.

Think who Christ is, and what Christ is, — and then think what His personal influence must be — quite infinite, boundless, miraculous. So that the very blessedness of heaven will noC be merely the sight of our Lord; it will be the being made holy, and kept holy, by that sight.
Charles Kingsley

  • “If we do anything to further the kingdom of God, we may expect to find what Christ found on that road – abuse, indifference, injustice, misunderstanding, trouble of some kind. Take it. Why not? To that you were called. If we think of the glorious fact that we are on the same path with Jesus, we might see a rainbow.” – Elisabeth Elliot
