Devotional: When He lays hold of us...

When He lays hold of us, He comes like the angel that came to Peter in prison in the dark and awoke him out of his sleep and said, "Rise! and follow me." It is only when we get out into the street, and have been with Him for awhile, and the daylight begins to stream in, that we see clearly the face of our Deliverer, and know Him for all that He is...It is the knowledge of experience. It is the knowledge of love, it is the knowledge of union, and it is in order that we may know Christ that He lays His hand upon us. ...Alexander MacLaren image
