• “He will enable you to overcome the giants in your temperament …He allows adversity and trial in our lives in order to reveal our true nature to us. Thus He humbles us and breaks us, so that He can transform us into His likeness.” – Annie Poonen

Joy and Strength 11/28

Whoso keepeth His word, in him verily is the love of God perfected; hereby know we that we are in Him.
i John ii. 5.

I have called you friends.
John xv. 15.

THE hands that tend the sick tend Christ; the willing feet that go on errands of love, work for Christ; the words of comfort to the sorrowful, and of sympathy to the mourner, are spoken in the name of Christ — Christ comforts the world through His friends. How much have you done for Him ? What sort of a friend have you been to Him ? God is working through His people; Christ is succoring through His friends — it is the vacancies in the ranks of His friends wherein the mischief lies: come and fill one gap.

Arthur F. Winnington Ingram.

It is true that love cannot be forced, that it cannot be made to order, that we cannot love because we ought, or even because we want. But we can bring ourselves into the presence of the lovable. We can enter into Friendship through the door of Discipleship \ we can learn love through service; and the day will come to us also, when the Master’s word will be true, “I call you no longer servant, but friend.”
Hugh Black.

Through His will, loved and done, lies the path to His love.
Andrew Murray.

  • “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22
