The Way of Christ – Amy Carmichael

The Way of Christ – Amy Carmichael

Are we going in the way Christ has gone, or are we only talking and praying and singing about it?  What about likes and dislikes? What about choices? What about Self? Christ’s way is the way that says “No” to the “I” that rises up so often and in its many different disguises. “If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself (say “No” to himself), and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.”

A Traditional Prayer

A Traditional Prayer

Teach us, good Lord, to serve Thee more faithfully; to give and not to count the cost; to fight and not to heed the wounds; to toil and not to seek for rest; to labour and not to ask for any reward, save that of knowing that we do Thy will, O Lord our God.
