Days of Heaven Upon Earth

Devotional For

December 12



      "To abide in the flesh is more needful for you, and having this confidence, I know that I shall abide" (Phil. i. 24, 25).
      
      One of the most blessed things about divine healing is that the strength it brings is holy strength, and finds its natural and congenial outflow in holy acts and exercises.
      
      Mere natural strength seeks its gratification in natural pleasures and activities, but the strength of Christ leads us to do as Christ would do, and to seek our congenial employment in His holy service.
      
      The life of Christ in a human body saves it from a thousand temptations to self-indulgence and sin, and not only gives us strength for higher service, but also a desire for it, and puts into it a zest and spring which gives it double power.
      
      Lord, help us to-day to claim Thy life and then give it for the help of others.
      
      Have you found the branch of healing?
          Pass it on.
      Have you felt the Spirit's sealing,
          Pass it on.
      'Twas for this His mercy sought you,
      And to all His fulness brought you,
      By the precious blood that bought you,
          Pass it on.
