Whatever a soul can desire…

Something to ponder from John Flavel):
whatever a soul can desireever a soul can desire:
“Jesus is . . .
bread to the hungry,
water to the thirsty,
a garment to the naked,
healing to the wounded.
Whatever a soul can desire–is found in Him!”

Something to ponder
Charles Spurgeon: “Meditation puts the telescope to the eye, and enables us to see Jesus after a better sort than we could have seen Him if we had lived in the days of His flesh. Would that our meditation was more in Heaven, and that we were more taken up with the person, the work, the beauty of our incarnate Lord.”

The sympathy of Jesus
The following is from Bonar’s book,
“The Night of Weeping”

“In all our affliction he is afflicted.”

Jesus weeps with us.

He knows our sorrows, for He has passed
through them all, and therefore He feels
for us. He is touched with the feeling of
our griefs as well as of our infirmities.
Even in His glory He enters most fully into
the fellowship of our burdens and sorrow,
whatever these may be, for there is not
one which He did not taste when He “dwelt
among us” here. His is sympathy, deep,
real, and true. It is no fiction, no fancy.
We do not see His tears falling upon us;
neither do we clasp His hand nor feel the
beating of His heart against ours. But still
His communion with us in suffering is a reality.
