CQOD: 05/18/07 -- Brother Lawrence: the sweetness of His presence
Christian Quotation of the DayMay 18, 2007
So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.
-- Galatians 5:16-18 (NIV)
There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than that of a continual walk with God. Those only can comprehend it who practice and experience it; yet I do not advise you to do it from that motive.
... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691)
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, send Your Spirit to me in my weakness.
