Today’s thought – Continually Desire Jesus

july 9 004the Farmer and Tuesday Night’s veggie stand.

Good Morning

Ephesians 3:17-19
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

Wherever thou goest,
whatever thou dost at home,
or abroad, in the field, or at church,
do all in a desire of union with Christ,
in imitation of His tempers and inclinations,
and look upon all as nothing,
but that which exercises,
and increases the spirit and life of Christ in thy soul.
From morning to night keep Jesus in thy heart,
long for nothing, desire nothing, hope for nothing
but to have all that is within thee changed
into the spirit and temper of the holy Jesus.
This new birth in Christ,
thus firmly believed and continually desired,
will do everything that thou wantest to have done in thee,
it will dry up all the springs of vice,
stop all the workings of evil in thy nature,
it will bring all that is good into thee,
it will open all the gospel withing thee,
and thou wilt know what it is to be taught of God.
~~~William Law

Desire Jesus . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
