A spiritual knowledge of Christ
is always a personal knowledge.
It is not gained through the experience of others.
Knowing the Lord in all of His fullness
for every situation we encounter is a lifetime pursuit.
- Kenneth W. Osbeck -
Teach me Thy way, O Lord, teach me Thy way!
Thy guiding grace afford, teach me Thy way!
Help me to walk aright, more by faith, less by sight;
Lead me with heav’nly light, teach me Thy way!
When I am sad at heart, teach me Thy way!
When earthly joys depart, teach me Thy way!
In hours of loneliness, in times of dire distress,
In failure or success, teach me Thy way!
When doubts and fears arise, teach me Thy way!
When storms o’erspread the skies, teach me Thy way!
Shine through the cloud and rain, through sorrow, toil and pain;
Make Thou my pathway plain, teach me Thy way!
Long as my life shall last, teach me Thy way!
Where’er my lot be cast, teach me Thy way!
Until the race is run, until the journey’s done,
Until the crown is won, teach me Thy way!
- Benjamin Mansell Ramsey -
Discipleship involves a willingness to be taught
and then a desire to follow the ways of the Lord-
to go with Him in the same direction He is going.
We must be willing to say with David Livingston,
the notes missionary statesman of the past century,
"I will place no value on anything I have or may possess
except in relation to the kingdom of Christ."
- Kenneth W. Osbeck -
I have held many things in my hands,
and I have lost them all;
but whatever I have placed in God's hands,
that I still possess.
- Martin Luther -
Teach me thy way, O Lord,
and lead me in a plain path.
- Psalm 27:11 -
Shew me thy ways, O Lord;
teach me thy paths.
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me:
for thou art the God of my salvation;
on thee do I wait all the day.
- Psalm 25: 4 & 5 -
Teach me thy way, O Lord;
I will walk in thy truth:
unite my heart to fear thy name.
- Psalm 86:11 -
Blessings and love to you
on this Lord's Day!
Happy May Day, sweet friends!
May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue.
May happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.
