Joy and Strength 07/06

But we all, with open face, beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory.
2 CoR. iii. 18.

Thy life in me be shown!
Lord! I would henceforth seek
To think and speak Thy thoughts.
Thy words alone;
No more my own.
Frances R. Havergal.

NOTHING short of the Life of the Eternal Son of God — the Holiness, the Purity of God, is the standard at which we are to aim; that is to be reproduced in our circumstances; the Divine Perfections are to be translated, reproduced in our life, our home, our trials, our difficulties, our age of the world. Let us ask ourselves. What is the special likeness of Christ that He would reproduce in me? What are the features of His Life that He calls me to imitate? What pattern would He set before me in my work, my circumstances, my difficulties? What are the inspirations of grace that He would urge me to cultivate and cherish?
Arthur C. A. Hall.

The Christian life must be in its own degree something like the Master’s own life, luminous with His hope, and surrounded by a bracing atmosphere which uplifts all who even touch its outer fringe.
Hugh Black.
