CONSIDER the history of the Redeemer’s love and a thousand enchanting acts of affection will suggest themselves, all of which have had for their design the weaving of the heart into Christ and the intertwisting of the thoughts and emotions of the renewed soul with the mind of Jesus. Nearness of life towards the Lamb will necessarily involve greatness of love to him. As nearness to the sun increases the temperature of the various planets, so close communion with Jesus...

O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy. Habakkuk 3:2 God is always ready to visit His people in blessing and grant revival and spiritual refreshment when they judge their sins in His presence and cry to Him for the deliverance they need. Oh, that we today might be stirred to realize the great need of the whole church of God, so that there would be a mighty cry of entreaty going up to the throne,...

His ascension and our union And it came to pass, while He blessed them, He was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. Luke 24:51. We have no corresponding experience to the events in Our Lord’s life after the Transfiguration. From then onwards Our Lord’s life was altogether vicarious.

“I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.”—Ps. 91:14. DOES the Lord say this to me? Yes, if I have known his name. Blessed be the Lord, I am no stranger to him. I have tried him and proved him, and known him, and, therefore, do I trust him. I know his name as a sin-hating God, for by his Spirit’s convincing power I have been taught that he will never wink at evil.

The habit of enjoying the disagreeable That the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. 2 Cor. 4:10. We have to form habits to express what God’s grace has done in us. It is not a question of being saved from hell, but of being saved in order to manifest the life of the Son of God in our mortal flesh, and it is the disagreeable things which make us exhibit whether or not we are manifesting His life. Do I manifest the essential sweetness of the Son of...
