Not only might I see His Glory.
He may even show me how you Magnified His Glory. 

This became known to everyone who lived in Ephesus, both Jews and Greeks. Then fear fell on all of them, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.

from Daily Overcoming Devotional (Ray Prinzing)

"Salvation is more than an experience, it is a state of being, a person.  Not only the person of Jesus Christ, but all of our experience of salvation is for the purpose of our BECOMING SALVATION, becoming saviours, those able to bring this ease, safety, comfort, deliverance, to others. The highest order of anything is to become that thing.  It shall be to the glory of God when our state of being is salvation personified--HIS LIFE, the totality of our life.  This does not belittle His Deity, nor take away from His glory, but becomes the expansion, the manifold expression of His glory, the out-shining of His light.

v 1  For Zion's sake, will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth."   v 2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name.  Isaiah 62:1-2

from Ray Prinzing's Daily Overcoming Devotional for August 6

2 Cor 5:14-15
For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:  and He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again..

Constraineth - from the Greek "sunecho" meaning: to hold together.  When it is love that is holding us together, girding up our thinking, what a positive walk with Christ. 

...

We are truly being held together, when love presses on us from all sides, and holds us to one glorious viewpoint - Love's View, and so girds up our mind that we are prohibited from considering any other, until  we become one in the truth that Christ died for all, to give life to all.   (my emphasis)

Love that girds the mind until no evil thoughts ensue,
Love that covers every sin, forgiveness to imbue,
Love that lasts beyond all time, negation to subdue,
Love that turns all loss to gain, creation to renew

==================

"There's no sweeter sound in all the world than
I love you, you are forgiven.
Have you heard those words?"

from Tentmaker eaglesway  Freewill is a myth thread

"Jesus chose every step along the way to yield to the Father's love.  He is teaching us  to do the same, so that His glory can become our glory as well, 'If we suffer with Him we will also reign with Him.'  To reign in life, love and light 'the glorious liberty of the children of God.'

from Spurgeon Morning and Evening: Daily Readings for August 9

...
Mary of Magdala was ...hopeless, horrible case.  She could not help herself, neither could any human succor avail.  But Jesus passed that way...uttered the word of power, and Mary of Magdala became a trophy of the healing power of Jesus.  (A miracle of grace!)

What a deliverance!  What a happy change!  From delirium to delight, from despair to peace...   Straightway she became a constant follower of Jesus, catching His every word... she became His generous helper, first among that band of healed and grateful women who ministered unto Him of their substance.  When Jesus was lifted up in crucifixion, Mary remained the sharer of His shame:  we find her first beholding from afar, and then drawing near to the foot of the cross.  She could not die on the cross with Jesus, but she stood as near it as she could, and when His body was taken down, she watched to see how and where it was laid.

She was a faithful and watchful believer, last at the sepulcher where Jesus slept, first at the grave when He arose.    ... she became His messenger of good news to the trembling disciples and Peter.  Thus grace found her a maniac and made her a minister...May I also be such a miracle of grace.

Amen, sister. Poor Mary Magdalene has gotten an undeserved reputation as a hooker, but scripture doesn't say that. Scripture only says that Christ cast seven demons out of her, and obviously she was a special disciple.

from Daily Open Windows  TASparks

1 John 5:20
We know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know Him


...

"So often the Lord has to take away our work that we may discover Him.  The ultimate value of everything is not the information which we give, not the soundness of our doctrine, not the amount of work that we do, not the measure of truth we possess, but just the fact that we know the Lord in a deep and mighty way.

Then the Jews surrounded Him and asked, "How long are You going to keep us in suspense?
If You are the Messiah, tell us plainly."

Paraphrase ;o)

How long must we keep our pistols half cocked, if you are the Messiah, tell us plainly, so we can pull the trigger.

"Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?"
 "Who are You, Lord?" he said.
"I am Jesus, the One you are persecuting," He replied. 6 "But get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do."


Then the Jews surrounded Him and asked, "How long are You going to keep us in suspense?
If You are the Messiah, tell us plainly."

I am moved by God.
I do not move God.
God is moved by no one.
It is not now my move.
Then it is God's move.
God moved once and for all.
God does not Remove.

From a man named G. Hertlein (need to find out more about him):

Life is not a contest with your neighbor, but a game with the Devil.
God makes all the rules, but the Devil's on the board.

[BTW, what do you say to a writer of aphorisms?  "Don't be so pithy!"]  :doh:

Socrates taught Plato.  Plato taught Aristotle.  Aristotle tutored the son of Philip of Macedon.  This boy grew up to become Alexander the Great, largely by slaughtering a lot of people.  That's philosophy.

Jesus spoke the Truth.  He blessed the poor.  He healed the sick.  He even raised the dead.  He died on a cross for us, lived again, and came back long enough to tell us to love one another.  That's religion.

St. Ephrem, the Syrian 

Be gentle with every person you meet--they are fighting a great battle.

====

Oswald Chambers from his book "Disciples Indeed"

The main characteristic which is the proof of the indwelling Spirit is an amazing tenderness in personal dealings and a blazing truthfulness with regard to God's Word.
