The Joy of Christ

When Jesus was speaking to His Father just before He
died, He prayed that His followers would have His joy fulfilled in
themselves (see John 1:13).

This privilege, like all privileges of the Christian, has
been purchased by the blood of Christ and is therefore a high and holy
responsibility. That is to say, the provision on God’s part of
privileges for us creates the obligation on our part to attain to their
enjoyment.

But are you a joyful Christian? Have you a Christ-like
experience in this regard? I do not ask you whether you have joyous
emotions, but is the joy of Christ fulfilled in yourself?

Grieve Not the Holy Spirit

Daily my heart is cleaving more closely to Christ and getting more
detached from earthly objects. The weaning process is going on. I find
the closer I get to the heart of Infinite Love—the nearer to the Son of
Righteousness—the more sensitively do I feel, to my heart’s deepest
core, everything that is contrary in spirit, word or action to the law
of love.

If we do, indeed, get nearer to the Son of Righteousness,
we cannot help but see with greater vividness everything that is
unrighteous and unlovely. And then the sight of the eyes will affect the
heart.
