"With Christ in the School of Prayer"

I have just started reading this book, and this morning came across this wonderful encouragement and provocation.

"Worship in spirit and in truth. In truth does not only mean in sincerity. Nor does it only signify accordance with the truth of God's word. The expression is one of deep and Divine meaning. Jesus is "the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth". "The law was given by Moses; grace and truth came by Jesus Christ". Jesus says, "I am the truth and the life". The Old Testament was all shadow and promise. Jesus brought and gives reality, the substance of things hoped for. In Him the blessings and powers of the eternal life are our actual possession and experience."

I wonder how we can let this shape our day, our year, our future. There is always more to come than we have yet seen, and we only find it in Him.
