August 6

THE cross of Golgotha thou lookest to in vain,
Unless within thyself it be set up again.
Johann Scheffler


TO repel one’s cross is to make it heavier.
Henri F. Amiel


THE sacrifice of Christ is done over again in every life which is lived not to self but to God.
Frederick W. Robertson


GOD forgive them that raise an ill report upon the sweet cross of Christ; it is but our weak and dim eyes, that look but to the black side, that make us mistake; those that can take that crabbed tree handsomely upon their backs, and fasten it on cannily, shall find it such a burden as wings unto a bird, or sails to a ship.
Samuel Rutherford
