Received a write up by Smith Wigglesworth titled “The Blessing of the Lord’s Supper.”
“No service is so wonderful to me as the service of partaking in the Lord’s Supper, the Holy Communion. I would love to see the saints gather together at every meeting in order to remember Christ’s death, His resurrection, and His ascension. What a thought that Jesus Himself instituted this glorious memorial for us. Oh, that God would let us see that it is “as often” as we do it. It is not weekly, not monthly, not quarterly, but “as often” as we do it. What a blessed remembrance it is to know that He took away our sins.”
He ends with this paragraph:
The human spirit, when perfectly united with the Holy Spirit, has but one place, and that is death, death, and deeper death. In this place, the human spirit will cease to desire to have its own way, and instead of “My will,” the cry of the heart will be, “May Your will, O Lord, be done in me.”
THE HUMAN SPIRIT, WHEN PERFECTLY UNITED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, HAS BUT ONE PLACE, AND THAT IS DEATH, DEATH AND DEEPER DEATH.
I cannot help but feel a certain foreboding for the coming year and shudder to think what lies ahead for 2020.
But I was glad to read his final word here with his thought:
“Thought for today: Jesus is interceding for us to keep us right, holy, ready, mighty, and filled with Himself so that we might bring the fragrance of heaven to the world’s needs.”
JESUS IS INTERCEDING FOR US TO KEEP US RIGHT, HOLY, READY, MIGHTY AND FILLED WITH HIMSELF SO THAT WE MIGHT BRING THE FRAGRANCE OF HAVEN TO THE WORLD'S NEEDS.
V reminds me: Even though you see a lot of negatives in the letter D for this year, remember that 2020 is a Year of Good Works. For it is when times are difficult that there is opportunity for good works - the work of bringing “the fragrance of heaven to the world’s needs.”
