• “I think of the love of God as a great river, pouring through us even as the waters pour through our ravine at floodtime. Nothing can keep this love from pouring through us, except of course our own blocking of the river. Do you sometimes feel that you have got to the end of your love for someone who refuses and repulses you? Such a thought is folly, for one cannot come to the end of what one has not got. We have no store of love at all. We are not jugs, we are riverbeds.” – Amy Carmichael

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

Verse of the Day

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. — Ephesians 6:12-13 (NKJV)
