• “Bare heights of loneliness…a wilderness whose burning winds sweep over glowing sands, what are they to HIM? Even there He can refresh us, even there He can renew us.” – Amy Carmichael

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.
