I have shared before what a great blessing the old writings are to my soul. It just causes me to chew more, talk with God for understanding, see the glory of the Lord and worship than ‘easy in and easy out.’ The Lord showed me this one recently in my readings and I would like to share it in hopes that it will bless your soul as much as it did mind. Show me the book that leads me to Jesus and the path of Life! How I thank God for His amazing love and grace to do just that.
“I have thought—I am a creature of a day, passing through life, as an arrow through the air. I am a spirit come from God, and returning to God: just hovering over the great gulf; till a few moments hence, I am no more seen! I drop into an unchangeable eternity! I want to know one thing, the way to heaven: how to land safe on that happy shore. God Himself has condescended to teach the way; for this very end He came from heaven. He hath written it down in a book! O give me that book! At any price, give me the Book of God! I have it: here is knowledge enough for me. ”
~John Wesley (1703-1791), preface to The Works of the Rev. John Wesley, v. V, New York: J. & J. Harper, 1826, p. 5
SELAH! Glory to the Most High Name of the Lord that satisfies and hunger and quenches our thirst!
