Fri.-Sabbath, 6/26-28/15 Devotion

Praise God! Sunday is only two days away! Here is Thomas Watson, from his, "A Divine Cordial":

"Love will make us stoop to the meanest [lowest] offices. Love is a humble grace, it does not walk abroad in state, it will creep upon its hands. It will stoop and submit to anything whereby it may be serviceable to Christ. As we see in Joseph of Arimathea, and Nicodemus, both of them honorable per-sons, yet one takes down Christ’s body with his own hands, and the other embalms it with sweet [spices]. It might seem much for persons of their rank to be employed in that service, but love made them do it.

"If we love God, we shall not think any work too [low] for us, by which we may be helpful to Christ’s members. Love is not squeamish; it will visit the sick, re-lieve the poor, wash the saints’ wounds. The mother that loves her child is not coy and nice; she will do those things for her child which others would scorn to do. He who loves God will humble himself to the meanest [lowest] office of love to Christ and His members."
