• “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22

Our Suffering God by Martha Snell Nicholson

We often speak of how, because of sin,
Mankind has suffered sore;
But have you ever thought of this, my friend,
That GOD has suffered more?

    Yes, he suffers more because he loves more. We, as Christians, believe in Jesus' sacrifice, a demonstration of God's love, and participate in his love and suffering.

      Amen, Olivia. As Amy Carmichael once said: “But the souls who love Him truly In woe or in sweet bliss, These will count their truest heart's blood Not their own, but His; Savior, Thou Who thus hast loved me, Give me love like this. Savior, Thou Who thus hast loved me, Give me love like this.”

Verse of the Day

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. — Ephesians 6:12-13 (NKJV)
