"That the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh" (2 Corinthians 4:11)
Today is our day. No one at any time has ever had any spiritual graces that we at this time cannot enjoy if we will meet the terms on which they are given. If these times are morally darker, they but provide a background against which we can shine the brighter.
Our God is the God of today as well as of yesterday, and we may be sure that wherever our tomorrows may carry us, our faithful God will be with us as He was with Abraham and David and Paul.
Those great men did not need us then, and we cannot have them with us now. Amen. So be it. And God be praised. We cannot have them, but we can have that which is infinitely better - we can have their God and Father, and we can have their Saviour, and we can have the same blessed Holy Spirit that made them great!
The surest method of arriving at a knowledge of God's eternal purposes about us is to be found in the right use of the present moment. It is our business to piece it together; and to live it into one orderly vocation.
