Campbell: finding self in finding God

Monday, March 7, 2022
    Feast of Perpetua, Felicity & their Companions, Martyrs at Carthage, 203
Blessed is the man
    who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
    or sit in the seat of mockers.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
    and on his law he meditates day and night.
    —Psalm 1:1-2 (NIV)
    The man who knows nothing of communion with God is a stranger to himself, and we find ourselves only as we find Him whom our hearts desire.
    ... R. J. Campbell (1867-1956), City Temple Sermons, New York: F. H. Revell company, 1903, p. 38 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 1:1-2; Ex. 33:11; Jer. 31:34; Lam. 3:25-26; Matt. 5:6; Rom. 7:22-23; Phil. 3:12-14; Heb. 11:6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the only path to true self-knowledge.
