MacDonald: without a flaw

Monday, December 24, 2018
    Christmas Eve
    [Jesus:] “For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it. I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say.”
    —John 12:49-50 (NIV)
A God must have a God for company.
And lo! thou hast the Son-God to thy friend.
Thou honour’st his obedience, he thy law.
Into thy secret life-will he doth see;
Thou fold’st him round in live love perfectly—
One two, without beginning, without end;
In love, life, strength, and truth, perfect without a flaw.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), Diary of an Old Soul, London: by the author, 1880, p. 261 (see the book)
    See also John 1:1-5; Gen. 1:26; John 12:49-50; Heb. 5:7-9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You give Your life to Your people.
