Another Great Quote September 14, 2006

Joe,

I know you said that you liked the quotes I always come up with, so here’s another one. It really is a great blessing to have the opportunity to devote several hours every week to studying the Word of God and reading great authors who have studied the Word of God, and serving others with those truths that God laid on my heart.

As I studied this week on worshiping in spirit and truth, I came across this quote from Bernard of Clairvaux:

Jesus, thou Joy of loving hearts,Thou Fount of life, thou Light of men, From the best bliss that earth imparts We turn unfulfilled to thee again. We taste thee, O thou living bread, And long to feast upon thee still; We drink of thee, the Fountainhead, And thirst our souls from thee to fill.

Oh to taste of Christ’s beauty in that way! Pray for me brother, as I will for you, that we will drink from the river of His delights until our hearts rest satisfied, and that we would expend our energies pointing others to the Fountain of Living Waters.

Larry

Edit — Sorry but I can’t figure out how to get the lines of the poem onto separate lines; maybe Joe can figure that out!
