Smith: resting in grace

Tuesday, July 16, 2019
    Commemoration of Osmund, Bishop of Salisbury, 1099
    [Jesus:] I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
    —John 14:18 (NIV)
    Once I knew what it was to rest upon the rock of God’s promises, and it was indeed a precious resting place, but now I rest in His grace. He is teaching me that the bosom of His love is a far sweeter resting-place than even the rock of His promises.
    ... Hannah Whitall Smith (1832-1911), Christian’s Secret of a Holy Life, M. E. Dieter, ed., Grand Rapids, Mich.: Zondervan 1994, p. 27 (see the book)
    See also John 14:18; Hos. 6:3; Matt. 18:20; 28:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your constant presence feeds Your people.
