MacDonald: O Christ, my life

Monday, May 14, 2018
    Feast of Matthias the Apostle
    Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.
    —1 John 3:2 (NIV)
O Christ, my life, possess me utterly.
Take me and make a little Christ of me.
If I am anything but thy father’s son,
’Tis something not yet from the darkness won.
Oh, give me light to live with open eyes.
Oh, give me life to hope above all skies.
Give me thy spirit to haunt the Father with my cries.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), Diary of an Old Soul, London: by the author, 1880, p. 103 (see the book)
    See also 1 John 3:2; Ps. 88:1; John 1:4; Rom. 8:26; Col. 3:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You alone are my hope.
