Text of the Day







          I pray for them . . . that they all may be one... that they may

 be made perfect in one… that the world may know that thou hast . . . loved them as thou hast loved me—John 17:20-23.


In amazement we inquire, How can this be? Our Lord Jesus was always in perfect harmony with the Father—a Son who gloriously reflected His likeness; but it has not been so with us; we were sinners and had nothing worthy of love. Yes, but we have been washed and cleansed, and, however imperfect our earthen vessels may still be, our hearts are perfect in His sight who is able to read the heart. And, as He sees us with a perfect heart—a perfect purpose and intention—Striving to overcome the weaknesses and disabilities of our imperfect flesh, and with painful, yet determined, effort to do His will, and humbly trusting in the provisions which He has made for our redemption from the fall, God recognizes in us that which is worthy of His love.
