• “O beloved friends, there is a life on wings. I feel the streams of His life fill me and permeate my mortal frame from my head to my feet, until no words are adequate to describe it. I can only make a few bungling attempts to tell you what it is like and ask the Lord to reveal to you the rest. May He reveal to you your inheritance in Christ Jesus so that you will press on and get all that He has for you.” – Carrie Judd Montgomery

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.

  • “It takes spiritual authority to bless others. Many Christians say, “God bless you,” but one clearly senses that although the words express a kind wish, they lack real spiritual authority.” – Basilea Schlink
