CQOD: 12/03/07 -- M'Cheyne: God's tools

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 3, 2007
Commemoration of Francis Xavier, Apostle of the Indies, Missionary, 1552
    If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me," even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.
    -- Psalm 139:11,12 (NIV)

    Every wise workman takes his tools away from the work from time to time that they may be ground and sharpened; so does the only-wise Jehovah take his ministers oftentimes away into darkness and loneliness and trouble, that he may sharpen and prepare them for harder work in his service.
    ... Robert Murray M’Cheyne (1813-1843)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, if it be Your will, send me.
