 Re:

The stronger the Christian's faith is in God's everlasting purpose, the more his courage to work will be strengthened; the more he works and is blessed, the clearer it will become that all is of God.

 Re:

The great object of redemption was to make us and our will free from the power of sin, and to lead us again to live and do the will of God. In His life on earth He showed us what it is to live only for the will of God; in His death and resurrection He won for us the power to live and do the will of God as He had done.

 Re:

Day 15

Not herein is sin, that man has a creature will different from the Creator's, but in this, [b]that he clings to his own will when it is seen to be contrary to the will of the Creator.[/b] Take God's will as one great whole, as the only thing for which you live on earth.



Day 16

God's will only seems hard as we look at it from a distance, and are unwilling to submit to it. How beautiful the will of God makes everything in Nature! The will of God is the will of His love. How can you fear to surrender yourself to it?


Day 17

A hearty obedience to the commandments, and a ready obedience to the conscience, are the preparation for that Divine teaching of the Spirit which will lead thee deeper into the meaning and application of the Word, and into a more direct and spiritual insight into God's will with regard to thyself personally. It is to those [i]who obey [/i]Him, God gives the Holy Spirit, through whom the blessed will of God becomes the light that shines evermore brightly on our path! --"If any man will do His will, he shall know."

A Christlike sense of sonship will lead to a Christlike obedience.

 Re:

It was the compassionate sympathy of Jesus that attracted so many to Him upon earth; that same compassionate tenderness will still, more than anything, draw souls to you and your Lord.

 Re:

Just in proportion as we live in more or less entire dependence on the Father, will His life plan for us be more or less perfectly worked out in our lives. The nearer the believer comes to this entire dependence of the Son, doing nothing but what He sees the Father do, and then to His implicit obedience, whatsoever He doeth, doing these in like manner, so much more will the promise be fulfilled in us. The Father showeth him all things that He Himself doeth, and will show him greater works than these.

 Re:

[b]The desire for independence was the temptation in Paradise, is the temptation in each human heart.[/b] It seems hard to be nothing, to know nothing, to will nothing. And yet it is so blessed. [b]This dependence brings us into most blessed communion with God;[/b] it takes from us all care and responsibility. It gives us real power and strength of will, because we know that He works in us to will and to do. It gives us the blessed assurance that our work will succeed, because we have allowed God alone to take charge of it.

 Re:

Just because Jesus' life was strong and true, it could not bear the loss of direct and constant intercourse with the Father, with whom and in whom it had its being and its blessedness. Even work in the service of God and of love is exhausting; we cannot bless others without power going out from us; this must be renewed from above. [b]It is from Heaven alone that the power to lead a heavenly life on earth can come.[/b]

 Re:

The entire sacrifice of ourselves to God in every prayer of daily life is the only preparation for those single hours of soul-struggle in which we may be called to some special act of surrender of the will that costs us tears and anguish. But he who has learnt the former, will surely receive strength for the latter.

 Re:

When we behold the glory of God in Christ, in the glass of the Holy Scriptures, His glory shines upon us, and into us, and fills us, until it shines out from us again.

[b]Beholding Jesus makes us like Him.[/b]
