The One Thread

F.B. Meyer on expository preaching:

“We possess nothing so precious, we value nothing so much; we have no source of good so full, fruitful and enduring; we have nothing to compare to the Lord Jesus Christ;. To Him we bear witness.” “Whom we proclaim,” cried the apostle, “admonishing every man, teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ.”

Brethren, let strive and labour towards the same end! Let our Lord Jesus be the one abiding reality with us, in our innermost thought, our private devotions, our ministry, and our preaching! Let Him be first, and last, and midst, and all-in-all! Let us wake with Him in the morning, walk with HIm all day, and lie down to sleep in the quiet sense of His presence! To present Him to men, by life and ministry and written and spoken speech, must be the thread on which are strung all the incidents of our varied experiences!
