Daily Devotional from F.B.
WALKING NOT AFTER THE FLESH, BUT AFTER THE SPIRIT
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus. That the requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”– Rom 8:1-4 (R.V.).
THE APOSTLE here is dealing with the conditions of a holy life; and the condemnation to which he refers is that caused by the constant failure so graphically described in the previous chapter. From my own experience, I think that the introspection which is often induced by ill-health and weakness makes us very sensitive to the failure and shortcoming of the inner life. We know that we are accepted in Christ, and that our sins are forgiven us for His sake; but we are deeply conscious that in us (i.e. in our flesh) dwelleth no good thing from. Rom 7:18).

MACDUFF THOUGHTS FOR THE QUIET HOUR
Beware of wasted moments!
The marvels and triumphs of the printing-press have
now made accessible to peasant and laborer, the
wondrous blessing of Christian literature! Neither
Croesus nor Plato—the two old-world representatives
of wealth and thought—had a library to compare with
what is readily available to us.
Let the young especially prize this splendid inheritance,
making it alike a privilege and obligation to devote some
hours to reading and garnering mental stores. Let them
beware of wasted moments—golden ingots—too often
mortgaged to . . .
voluptuous ease and
“Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” Eph 5:16

MACDUFF Rainbow in the Clouds: 14. UNVEILED MYSTERIES
“You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” Joh 13:7
Much is baffling and perplexing to us in God’s present dealings. “What!” we are often ready to exclaim, “could not the cup have been less bitter; the trial less severe; the road less dreary?” “Hush your misgivings,” says a gracious God; “arraign not the rectitude of My dispensations. You shall yet see all revealed and made bright in the mirror of eternity!”
