A meditative thought for us to ponder as another week unfolds.
Sometimes the way ahead looks green and promising. Sometimes it appears shadowed and gloomy. Do you have a FRIEND who walks beside and with you?
Oswald Chambers wrote, probably not long before his early death in 1917,
If I am a friend of Jesus, I have deliberately and carefully to lay down my life for Him. It is difficult, and thank God it is difficult. Salvation is easy because it cost God so much, the manifestation of it in my life is difficult. God saves people and fills them with His Holy Spirit and then says in effect…..Now work it out….be loyal to ME. The nature of things and attitudes around you would make you disloyal.
“I have called you friends”
Stand loyal to your friend. Remember His honour is at stake in your bodily, earthly life.
Seek beauty! Love Life!
