“Christ has no body now on earth but yours;
yours are the only hands with which He can do the work,
yours are the only feet with which He can go about the world,
yours are the only eyes through which His compassion can shine forth upon a troubled world.
Christ has no body now on earth, but yours. — Teresa of Avila
(from the 365 Day Devotional Commentary, Lawrence O. Richards, Victor Publications, 1992, pg 981)
This is my first posting for “thot” (thought) for the day.
These will be taken from various things I come across. Either on the internet, reading, or from a sermon. Something that is important to me.
Many ideas will probably come from one of 3 sources:
1. My main daily devotional: The 365 Day Devotional Commentary, by Larry O. Richards.
2. Our Daily Bread
3. Our Daily Journey
This first entry is from the 365 Day Daily devo for October 5:
God doesn’t demand that we be perfect as we seek to please Him. He only asks that we love Him — and that we try. — Larry O. Richards
God uses failure, sickness, breakdown, sin, personal tragedy, and sorrow to reduce His people to usefulness. Unless the servant of God learns to depend utterly on God and to forsake self-dependence of any kind, he or she remains too strong to be of much value. — Robert C. Girard
