April 24, Today’s thought – The Pattern

April 14 flowers 003Golden Celebration

Good Afternoon

From Joy & Strength , Mary Wilder Tileson

But we all, with open face, beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory. 2 Corinthians 3:18

Nothing short of the Life of the Eternal Son of God—the Holiness,
the Purity of God, is the standard at which we are to aim;
that is to be reproduced in our circumstances;
the Divine Perfections are to be translated,
reproduced in our life,
our home,
our trials,
our difficulties,
our age of the world.
Lest us ask ourselves,
What is the special likeness of Christ
that He would reproduce in me?
What are the features of His Life that He calls me to imitate?
What pattern would He set before me in my work,
my circumstances,
my difficulties?
What are the inspirations of grace that He would urge me
to cultivate and cherish?
~~~Arthur C. A. Hall

In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works:
in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
Titus 2:7

Follow God’s pattern . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
