• “Jesus came!—-And came for me. Simple words! and yet expressing Depths of holy mystery, Depths of wondrous love and blessing. Holy Spirit , make me see All His coming means for me, ‘ Take the things of Christ , I pray, Show them to my heart today.” – Francis R. Havergal

Joy and Strength 11/30

He saith unto them, Follow me . . . and they straightway left their nets, and followed Him.
Matt. iv. 19, 20.

Jesus calls us; o^er the tumult
Of our life’s wild, restless sea.
Day by day His sweet voice soundeth,
Saying, ** Christian, follow me.”
As of old St. Andrew heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Turned from home, and toil, and kindred,
Leaving all for His dear sake.
Cecil F. Alexander.

THE will of God will be done ; but, oh, the unspeakable loss for us if we have missed our opportunity of doing it!
Brooke Fobs Westcott.

God, who calleth us, Himself gives us the strength to obey His call. He who is with us now to call us, will be ever present with us, in all whereto He calleth us. All in His purpose and love, every degree of grace and glory, lies wrapped up in His next call. All eternity of bliss and the love of God will, through His grace, forecoming, accompanying, following, lie in one strong, earnest, undivided, giving of thy whole self to God, to do in thee, through thee, with thee, His gracious, loving will.
Edward B. Pusey
