Smith: oneness with Christ

Sunday, April 30, 2023
    Commemoration of Pandita Mary Ramabai, Translator of the Scriptures, 1922
    And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him.
    —1 John 4:16-17 (NIV)
    It is out of the question to be one with Him in any other way than in the way of nature, and character, and life. Unless we are Christ-like in our thoughts and our ways, we are not one with Him, no matter how we feel.
    ... Hannah Whitall Smith (1832-1911), Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life, London: F. E. Longley, 1876, p. 130 (new ed.) (see the book)
    See also 1 John 4:16-17; Matt. 10:37-38; John 6:53-56; 14:23; Rom. 8:10-11,29; 12:2; 1 Cor. 15:48-49; 2 Cor. 5:21; Phil. 2:5-7; 3:10-11; 1 John 3:2; 4:12-15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, strengthen my desire to be one with You.
