Carmichael: taking Christ's place

Thursday, October 25, 2018
    Commemoration of Crispin & Crispinian, Martyrs at Rome, c.285
    [Jesus:] “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
    —Matthew 6:33 (NIV)
    If I slip into the place that can be filled by Christ alone, making myself the first necessity to a soul instead of leading it to fasten upon Him, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
    ... Amy Carmichael (1867-1951), If [1938], London: SPCK, 1961, p. 58 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 6:33; 16:24-26; Mark 8:36; Luke 9:25; Gal. 2:20; 5:12; Rev. 17:14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make me always point to You.
