“Be sure of your call to every business you go about. Though it is the least business, be sure of your call to it; then, whatever you meet with, you may quiet your heart with this: I know I am where God would have me. Nothing in the world will quiet the heart so much as this: when I meet with any cross, I know I am where God would have me, in my place and calling; I am about the work that God has set me.”

Thomas Watson on Desire for Christ

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Monday, March 6, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“An unfeigned desire is supreme. We desire Christ, not only more than the world, but more than heaven. "whom have I in heaven but thee?" Psa 73: 25. Heaven itself would not satisfy without Christ. He is the diamond in the ring of glory. If God should say to the soul, I will put thee into heaven, but I will hide my face from thee, I will draw a curtain between that thou shalt not behold my glory, the soul would not be satisfied, but say, as Absalom, "Now therefore let me see the king's face." 2 Samuel 14: 32.”
Thomas Watson

J.R. Miller on Christian Love

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, March 2, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“But what is the love that is the whole of the will of God?  Do we really understand it?  Do not many of us think only of its earthly side? We like to be loved, that is, to have other people love us and live for us and do things for us.  We like the gratifications of love.  But that is only miserable selfishness, if it goes no further.  It is a desecration of the sacred name to think that love, at its heart, means getting, receiving.  Nay, love gives. Getting is earthly; "as it is in heaven" is giving.  That is what God's love does — it finds its blessedness in giving. "God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son."  That is what Christ's love did—it poured out its very life-blood to the last drop.  The essential meaning of loving must always be giving, not receiving.”

J.R. Miller
