CQOD: 12/28/06 -- M’Cheyne: Christ in the desert

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 28, 2006
Feast of the Holy Innocents
    The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad;
        the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus;
    it shall blossom abundantly
        and rejoice with joy and singing.
    The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it,
        the majesty of Carmel and Sharon.
    They shall see the glory of the LORD,
        the majesty of our God.
    -- Isaiah 35:1-2 (ESV)

    You will never find Jesus so precious as when the world is one vast howling wilderness. Then he is like a rose blooming in the midst of the desolation, a rock rising above the storm.
    ... Robert Murray M’Cheyne (1813-1843)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, my years in the desert have ended with finding You.
