• “Lord, may no gift of yours ever take Your place in my heart. Help me to hold them lightly in an open palm, that the supreme object of my desire may always be You and You alone. Purify my heart.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Joy and Strength 04/19

To do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
Heb. xiii. 16.

Freely ye have received, freely give.
Matt. X. 8.

Surely Thou hast some work for me to do!
Oh, open Thou mine eyes,
To see how Thou wouldst choose to have it done,
And where it lies!
Elizabeth Prentiss.

THEN saw I that each kind compassion that man hath on his fellow-Christians with charity, it is Christ in him.
Mother Juliana.

Say not you cannot gladden, elevate, and set free; that you have nothing of the grace of influence; that all you have to give is at the most only cornmon bread and water. Give yourself to your Lord for the service of men with what you have. Cannot He change water into wine? Cannot He make stammering words to be instinct with saving power? Cannot He change trembling efforts to help into deeds of strength? Cannot He still, as of old, enable you in all your personal poverty “to make many rich?” God has need of thee for the service of thy fellow-men. He has a work for thee to do. To find out what it is, and then to do it, is at once thy supremest duty and thy highest wisdom. “Whatsoever He saith unto you, do it.”
George Body.
