(John Angell James, “The Anxious Enquirer” 1834)
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?
them in His bosom.” He will not carry them on His shoulder
–the emblem of strength; but in His bosom–the image of
infinite source in Christ’s fullness.

Something to ponder:
“The study of everything that stands connected with the death of Christ, whether it be in . . .
the types of the ceremonial law,
the predictions of the prophets,
the narratives of the gospels,
the doctrines of the epistles, or
the sublime vision of the Apocalypse,
this is the food of the soul, the manna from Heaven, the bread of life.
This is food indeed and drink indeed!” John Angell James
