Underhill: hard choices

Monday, March 14, 2022
    Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”
    —Matthew 26:39 (NIV)
    Christian history looks glorious in retrospect; but it is made up of constant hard choices and unattractive tasks, accepted under the pressure of the Will [of God].
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), Abba, New York: Longmans, Green, 1940, p. 44-45 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 26:39; Ps. 40:7-8; John 6:38; 14:31; Phil. 2:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, humble me so that I do not resist the Holy Spirit.
