1. Inward Stillness “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psa. 46:10). There is a stillness in the Christian’s life— Like summer eve, when all is hushed and calm, Or like the sea, whose waves have sunk to rest, Across whose bosom steals an evening psalm. ’Tis there the voice of our Beloved’s heard— The discord of our voices, hushed and still, No longer hinders all He has to say; ’Tis sweeter than the music of the rill! There is a stillness in the Christian’s life— The corn of wheat must fall into the ground And die; then if it die, out of that death, Life, fullest life, will blessedly abound. It is a mystery no words can tell, But known to those who in this stillness rest, Something divinely Comprehensible; That for my nothingness I get God’s best! —W. Spencer Walton. A Figure of the True “When . . . this mortal shall have put on immortality” (1 Cor. 15:54). One evening, as we sat at the end of India on the rocks of Cape Com­ orin, a little fishing boat sailed into the sunset. It was only a rough* thing made of three logs tied together, and its sail was a mere rag, but it was transfigured. To see it so was like seeing the mortal put on immortality, the temporal take on the beauty of the eternal. Usually, I think, A speck of earth entangled in Such glory would show dark against the glory, but that eve­ ning, so mighty were the powers of the golden air, that all of earth was swallowed up. It was a figure of the true.—Amy Carmichael. 3. "It Is Finished" “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God” (1 Pet. 3:18). “When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost” (John 19:30), 2.

The veil is rent; Lo! Jesus stands Before the throne of grace; And clouds of incense from His hands Fill all that glorious place. His precious blood is sprinkled there, Before and on the throne; And His own wounds in heaven declare His work on earth is done. “ ’Tis finished!” on the cross He said, In agonies and blood; ’Tis finished! Now He lives to plead Before the face of God. ’Tis finished! Here our souls can rest, His Work can never fail; By Him, our Sacrifice and Priest, We enter through the veil. —J. W. Peterson. 4. The Valley of Weeping “Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; . . . who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well” (Psa. 84:5, 6). n=READ THE BEST=r IN CHRISTIAN LITERATURE Send for our catalog of publications, and receive free booklet, also.
