M'Cheyne: basking in the beams of God

Thursday, March 24, 2022
    Feast of Oscar Romero, Archbishop of San Salvador, Martyr, 1980
    Commemoration of Paul Couturier, Priest, Ecumenist, 1953
    [Jesus:] “Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
    —Luke 12:33-34 (NIV)
    Learn much of the Lord Jesus. For every look at yourself, take ten looks at Christ. He is altogether lovely. Such infinite majesty, and yet such meekness and grace, and all for sinners, even the chief. Live much in the smiles of God. Bask in his beams. Feel his all-seeing eye settled on you in love, and repose in his almighty arms. Cry after divine knowledge, and lift up your voice for understanding. Seek her as silver, and search for her as for hid treasure.
    ... Robert Murray M’Cheyne (1813-1843), Memoir and Remains of the Rev. Robert Murray M’Cheyne, Dundee: W. Middleton, 1845, p. 254 (see the book)
    See also Luke 12:33-34; Ps. 42:1-2; Prov. 2:4; John 1:29; 6:40; 8:56; Heb. 12:1-2; 1 John 1:1-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, take my eyes, that they may rest on You.
