Quietly contemplate the Lamb as the light of heaven. Light in Scripture is
the emblem of joy. The joy of the saints in heaven is comprised in this:
Jesus chose us, loved us, bought us, cleansed us, robed us, kept us,
glorified us: we are here entirely through the Lord Jesus.
And the quote of the day (Spurgeon)
Let us draw nigh to Him, and in Him find joy and peace in believing. Let us wrap ourselves in the warm garments of His promises, and go forth to labors which befit the season, for it were ill to be as the sluggard who will not plough by reason of the cold; for he shall beg in summer and have nothing.
What comfort it is to dwell in God's promises!
A promise is only as good as the one who makes it...and yet, when we are brought to Christ, when we are called, we are also called to a mission. To fail to do that mission is to misuse the grace of Christ.
