[i]Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not. -Genesis 28:16[/i]

The parish priest, of austerity,
Climbed up in the high church steeple
To be nearer to God, that he might hand
His word down to the people.
And in sermon script he daily wrote
What he thought was sent from heaven;
And he dropped it down on the poeople's heads
Two times one day in seven.
In his age God said, "Come down and die."
And he cried out from the steeple:
"Where art thou, Lord?" And the Lord replied:
"Down here among My people."

[i]Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgements, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers giveth you. - Deuteronomy 4:1[/i]

"Hearken" and "do," that ye may "live" and "possess." This is a universal and abiding principle. It was true for Israel, and it is true for us. The pathway of life and the true secret of possession is simple obedience to the holy commandments of God. We see this all through the inspired volume, from cover to cover. God has given us His Word, not to speculate upon it or discuss it, but that we may obey it. And it is as we, through grace, yield a hearty and happy obedience to our Father's statutes and judgements, that we tread the bright pathway of life, and enter into the reality of all that God has treasured up for us in Christ. - C.H.M.

[i]I live not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. - Galatians 2:20[/i]

The man who lives in God knows no life except the life of God. - Philip Brooks

[i]As my lord the king hath said, so will thy servant do. - 1 Kings 2:38[/i]

There is something infinitely better than doing a great thing for God, and the infinitely better thing is to be where God wants us to be, to do what God wants us to do, and to have no will apart from His. - G. Campbell Morgan

[i]Who is among you that feareth the Lord... that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? Let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God. - Isaiah 50:10[/i]

"In fierce stroms," said an old seaman, "we can do but one thing; there is only one way. We must put the ship in a certain position and keep her there."
This Christian, is what you must do. Sometimes, like Paul, you can see neither sun nor stars, and no small tempest lies on you. Then you can do but one thing: there is only one way. Reason cannot help you. Past experiences give you no light. Even prayer fetches no consolation. Only a single course is left. You must put your soul in one position and keep it there. You must stay upon the Lord. Come what may winds, waves, lightning, thunder, frowning rocks, roaring breakers-you must lash yourself to the helm and hold fast your confidence in God's faithfulnes, His sovereign engagement, His everlasting love in Christ Jesus. - Richard Fuller

[i]The word of our God shall stand for ever. - Isaiah 40:8[/i]

The word of God is the water of life: the more freely you allow it to flow, the fresher it runs. It is the fire of God's glory: the more you blow on it, the clearer it burns. It is the corn of the Lord's field: the better you grind it, the more it yields. It is the bread of heaven: the more it is broken and given forth, the more it remains. It is the sword of the Spirit: the more it is used, the brighter it shines. - Bishop Jewel

[i]He placed... cherubims, and a flaming sword.. to keep the way of the tree of life. - Genesis 3:24

Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they have the right to the tree of life. - Revelation 22:14[/i]

How remarkable and beautiful it is that the last pages of Revelation should bend round to touch the first pages of Genesis! The history of man began with angels with frowning faces and flaming swords barring the way to the Tree of Life. It ends with the cherubim guard withdrawn; or perhaps, sheathing of their swords and becoming guides to the no longer forbidden fruit, instead of being its guards. that is the Bible's grand symbolic way of saying that all between-the sin, the misery, the death-is a parenthesis. God's purpose is not going to be thwarted. The end of His majestic march through history is to be men's access to the Tree of Life, from which, for the dreary ages that are but as a moment in the great eternities, they were barred out by sin. - Alexander Maclaren

[i]That the God our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revaltion in the knowledge of him: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened. - Ephesians 1:17-18[/i]

We were coming down a mountain in Switzerland one evening, when a black thunderstomr blotted out the day, and all was suddenly plunged into darkness. We could only dimly see the narrow, dusty footpaths, and the gloomy sides that were swallowed up in deeper gloom. What then of all the majesty all about us-heights, and depths, and wonders? All was darkness. Then came lightning-not flashes, but the blazing of the whole sky-incessant, and on every side. What recesses of glory we gazed into! What marvels of splendor shone out of the darkness!
Think how with us, in us, is One who comes to make the common, dusty ways of life resplendent, illuminating our dull thoughts by the light of the glory of God; clearing the vision of the soul, and then revealing the greatness of the salvation that is ours in Christ. - Mark Guy Pearse

[i]The eleven disciples went...into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. Jesus came and spake unto them, saying... God ye... and teach all nations. - Matthew 28:16,18-19[/i]

The considerable actions int he world have usually very small beginnings. Of a few letters, how many thousand words are made! of then figures, how many thousand numbers! A point is the beginning of all geometry. A little stone flung into a pind makes a little circle, then a greater, till it enlarges itself to the sides. So from small beginnings God cases an efflux through the whole world. - Charnock
