them, my friend, if thou wilt but rest thyself in Him.— C h a rles H addon S pu rg eon . DECEMBER 22 A Song in the Tempest "In the Lord put I my trust " (Psa. 11:1). A little while ago I listened to a concert of mingled thunder and bird-song. Between the crashing peals of thunder, I heard the clear thrilling note of the lark. The melody seemed to come out of the very heart of the tempest. The environment of this Psalm is stormy. . . . The singer is a soul in diffi culty. . . . The enemies are overwhelming, and, just at this point of seeming defeat and imminent disaster, there emerges this note of joyful confidence in God. "In the
able to help somebody else with what hurts that one, with the help wherewith you are helped and comforted by God, then I think He does not disdain to say that you are en tering into the fellowship of His sufferings. It is sure to be for your own spiritual benefit.— H andley C. G. M o u le . “There is none other name tinder heaven given among men, whereby we most be saved" (Acts 4:12). If there is one word above another that will swing open the eternal gates, it is the name of Jesus. There are a great many passwords down here, but that will be the countersign up above. Jesus Christ is the "Open Sesame” to heaven. Any one who tries to clir^b up some other way is a thief and a robber. And when we get in, what a joy above every other joy we can think of will it be to see Jesus Himself, and to be with Him continually!—D. L. M oody . DECEMBER 19 Union with Christ "If ye shall ask any thing in my name Jj I will do it" (John 14:14). Prayer is answered because of our iden tification with Christ. This is our priv ilege "in Christ.” But may this not also suggest why some of our prayers are not answered? W e say “in His name,” but we say it unthinkingly . . . Does not our thoughtless, casual habit come very near to taking His name in vain at times? Shall we not try more conslstenly to obey the command to abide in Him, so that we may say "in His name” more sincerely in our prayers?— W a lter C. E rdman . "Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations " (1 Pet. 1:6). That bit of earth that held the seed, Free of the choking thorn and weed, That spot of plowed and hallowed ground That felt it die, emerge, abound, Must also feel, as life leaps tall, An ever-lengthening shadow fall. That soul receives the word of God Wherein some need has crushed the clod, That spirit bears the kingdom fruit Which gives the gospel fertile root; Then as the Saviour grows inside. The old life dies—is crucified! DECEMBER 21 Soul Healing "Great multitudes follow ed him, and he healed them all” (Matt. 12:15). My soul, whatever thy disease may be, this great Physician can heal thee. If He be God there can be no limit to His power. . . . None shall restrain the healing virtue which proceeds from Jesus our Lord. Le gions of devils have been made to own the power of the beloved Physician, and never once has He been baffled. All His patients have been cured in the past, and shall be in the future, and thou shalt be one among DECEMBER 18 The Countersign DECEMBER 20 The Shadow of Christ — G en e F a rrell .
