Rutherford: keeping the watch

Monday, January 21, 2019
    Feast of Agnes, Child Martyr at Rome, 304
    [Jesus:] As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.
    —John 9:4 (NIV)
    I shall think it mercy to my soul, if my faith shall out-watch all this winter-night, and not nod or slumber till my Lord’s summer-day dawn upon me.
    ... Samuel Rutherford (1600-1664), Letters of Samuel Rutherford, Edinburgh: William Whyte & Co., 1848, letter, Jan. 6, 1637. p. 155 (see the book)
    See also John 9:4; Ps. 30:5; 63:6; 119:148; Matt. 26:40-41; Mark 14:37-38; Luke 22:45-46
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, help me hold on to you during the darkness.
