What will He do with the lambs?
(John Angell James, “The Anxious Enquirer” 1834)

“He will feed His flock like a shepherd. He will gather
the lambs in His arm, and carry them in His bosom.”
(Isaiah 40:11)

It is said of our Divine Redeemer, “He will feed His flock
like a shepherd.” And in His flock there are lambs which
can neither travel fast nor far. And what will He do with
the lambs?
“He will gather the lambs in His arm, and carry
them in His bosom.” He will not carry them on His shoulder
–the emblem of strength; but in His bosom–the image of
tender love.

Weak grace is real grace, and is in connection with the
infinite source in Christ’s fullness.
