Thompson: Art thou not life of them that live?

Thursday, December 3, 2015
    Commemoration of Francis Xavier, Apostle of the Indies, Missionary, 1552
    Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.
    —Ephesians 2:19-21 (NIV)
Art thou not life of them that live?
Yea, in glad twinkling advent, thou dost dwell
Within our body as a tabernacle!
    ... Francis Thompson (1859-1907), Poems of Francis Thompson, A&C Black, 2002, p. 113 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 2:19-21; Ps. 118:22; John 14:20; Rom. 8:10; 1 Cor. 3:16-17; 6:19-20; Eph. 2:22; Col. 1:27; 1 Pet. 2:7-9; Rev. 3:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Dwell in me, Lord.
