• “The greatest satisfaction I can have is the knowledge that He is what He is; and that, being what He is, He never will be otherwise. If I am saved at last, it will be the free gift of God; since I have no worth and no merit of my own.” – Madame Guyon

Joy and Strength 12/07

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him.
Col. ii. 6.

We have the mind of Christ.
I Cor. ii. 16

Never further than Thy cross;
Never higher than Thy feet;
Here earth’s precious things seem dross;
Here earth’s bitter things grow sweet.

Here we learn to serve and give,
And, rejoicing, self deny;
Here we gather love to live,
Here we gather faith to die.
Elizabeth R. Charles.

ARE we assimilating His mind, His way of looking at things, His judgments, His spirit? Is the Christ-conscience being developed in us? Have we an increasing interest in the things which interest Him, an increasing love of the things that He loves, an increasing desire to serve the purposes He has at heart? “Ye are ipy friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you,” is the test by which we can try ourselves.
Hugh Black.

This I saw, that when a soul loves God with a supreme love, God’s interests and his are become one. It is no matter when nor where nor how Christ should send me, nor what trials He should exercise me with, if I may be prepared for His work and will.
David Brainerd.
