Joy and Strength 07/04

If any man he in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Cor. v. 17.

His perfect peace has swept from sight
The narrow bounds of time and space,
And, looking up with still delight,
We catch the glory of His face.
Augusta Larned.

IN every moment of our days, when once our hearts are yielded to His service, God is working in us and through us. Hitherto, perhaps, our little world has only been large enough to hold self and the present. But, gradually, through tender leadings and unfoldings, and, it may be, through pain and suffering, we come to learn life’s lesson, — that it is God’s world, not ours ; that our existence is not finished and rounded ofF here, but forms part of one vast scheme to which mind and heart and spirit expand and grow, while all the horizon round them grows and expands too, until it touches the shore of the illimitable future, and we become conscious that earth and heaven are not so far separated but that the first is but the vestibule of the second, — imperfect, cloudy, full of broken fragments, but still part of the same Temple of God as that to which we shall pass in by and by.
H. Bowman.

Verse of the Day

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. — 1 Corinthians 2:14 (NKJV)
