• “There’s a big difference between a life that’s a performance, and a life that’s an offering — One holds us captive. The other sets us free.” – Susie Larson

Joy and Strength 06/07

Strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts hy faith.
Eph. iii. 16, 17.

MAY we not only be delivered from the outward act or word that grieves Thee, but may the very springs of our nature be purified!
F. B. Meyer.

Take the last transient swell of petty impatience, or of unkind criticism; things which to the unawakened conscience look so small, to the awakened conscience so large. There is not one that need have taken place. Had I been walking that moment with God, abiding that moment in Christ, drawing that moment on the sanctifying Spirit’s power, I should not have lost temper, I should not have thought unkindly; — not only should I not have looked impatience, or indulged in needless severity of words. The occasion for the very feeling would have been as if it were not, because neutralized in Jesus Christ. And if that might have been true for the last five minutes, why should it not be true for the next five, for the present minute? “I can do all things,” I have resources for all circumstances, “in Him that strengtheneth me.”
Handley C. G. Moule
