John: the source of unity

Wednesday, June 24, 2020
    Feast of the Birth of John the Baptist
    And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.
    —Acts 13:52 (NIV)
    The Holy Spirit [is] the source of spiritual unity! He is the Fount of all true joy! ... We as missionaries need the fullness of this joy. Without it our work will be a burden to us, and we shall toil on with the hearts of slaves; and the hearts of slaves are never strong.
    ... Griffith John (1831-1912), “The Holy Spirit in Connection with our Work”, in Records of the General Conference of the Protestant Missionaries of China, Shanghai: Presbyterian Mission Press, 1878, p. 36,38 (see the book)
    See also Luke 11:13; John 7:37-39; Acts 13:52; Rom. 15:13; 1 Cor. 12:7-12; Phil. 2:1-2
Quiet time reflection:
    Joy from the Holy Spirit unites Your people, Lord.
