• “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

Joy and Strength 06/01

Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name; ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may he full.
John xvi. 24.

God’s “ask”
Meaneth all fulness and all grace.
Access in every time and place;
Yet we . To whom this mercy is so free,
This privilege of light to bask
In the full sunshine of His face,
Regard prayer even as a task.
Anna E. Hamilton.

THERE is some power we have not yet discovered, some secret as yet unknown, — but oh! what a marvellous power! what a blessed secret! that can make the Christian life a life of love, and trust, and bright serenity; something different from the duty-life, which, though real, does not satisfy; having all the activity and earnestness of the duty-life, but having with it the peace and joy which many and many a soul is craving.
William R. Huntington.

We do not value as we ought our inestimable privilege of being allowed to worship God. We do not prize our heavenly prerogative of being permitted to keep His commandments. We look at that as an obligation which is more properly a boon,
Frederick W. Faber.
