Joy and Strength 12/30

Whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.
CoL. iii. 17.

Yea, through life, death, through sorrow and through sinning.
He shall suffice me, for He hath sufficed:
Christ is the end, for Christ was the beginning;
Christ the beginning for the end is Christ.
F. W. H. Myers.

LET this be thy whole endeavor, this thy prayer, this thy desire, — that thou mayest be stripped of all selfishness, and with entire simplicity follow Jesus only.
Thomas A. Kempis.

Do what is pleasing to Jesus Christ, and neglect nothing which pleases Him.
Lorenzo Scupoli.

To “do all things in the name of Jesus” is the lesson of a life; do not be angry with yourselves, nor despair of ever learning it, because thott art slow to learn the first few syllables. When thou hast learned to do all things to Jesus, it will shed pleasure over all dull things, softness over all hard things, peace over all trial and woe and suspense. Then will life be glad, when thou livest to Jesus; and how sweet deaths to die in Jesus; with Him, and to Him, and in Him, to live for evermore.
E. B. Pusey
