Law: the indwelling of Christ
Commemoration of Petroc, Abbot of Padstow, 6th century
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
-- Revelation 3:20 (KJV)
You have no questions to ask of any body, no new way that you need inquire after; no oracle that you need to consult; for whilst you shut yourself up in patience, meekness, humility, and resignation to God, you are in the very arms of Christ, your heart is His dwelling-place, and He lives and works in you as certainly as He lived in and governed that body and soul which He took from the Virgin Mary.
... William Law (1686-1761), The Spirit of Love [1752-4] (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, own my life.
