If you saw Christ standing beside you

J.R. Millerby J.R. Miller

“Intimate Letters on Personal Problems”

Scripture says of Moses, that “he endured as seeing Him who is invisible!” Hebrews 11:27. That is, Moses always remembered that God was right beside him, his friend to help him–and this made him strong. He did not actually see God–but it was as if he saw Him. That is, he realized the divine presence in all of his life.

If you saw Christ standing beside you all the time–it would not be hard for you to keep sweet, or to keep control of your temper and speech.

Well, Christ IS beside you–just as really as He was beside Mary when she sat at His feet in Bethany, or beside Peter and the other disciples as they walked together over the hills of Judea and Galilee. What you need, is to realize this fact.

We know that Jesus is present with us all the time, at every moment, by day or by night. He is closer than any human friend can be to us. Indeed, we are to practice His presence–that is, we are to live all the time, as if we actually saw Him!

You must remember that Christ is always besides you, not only to see you–but to help you, as your truest and best Friend!

“All for Christ!” 1882

“Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks unto God the Father by Him.” Colossians 3:17

“Whether therefore you eat, or drink, or whatever you do–do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31

Whatever is done, even in the commonest matters of life, the food we eat, our conduct at the breakfast table or the dinner table–is to be done for the glory of the Father and the Son.

These precepts take in the whole field of a Christian’s life and duty. They cover every inch of ground. They distinctly bear on every act and word and thought, and on every moment of our time. They permit no exceptions.

From our first waking thought in the morning–to the last breath we draw before we sleep at night; from the first day of January–to the last day of December, and that of every year of our lives, until our course is run–all is to be yielded, gladly and willingly, to the service of our Redeemer-King!

No aim can be too exalted for one who has been purchased by the blood of Christ, and who has yielded himself as a living sacrifice to the Father in Heaven.

We dare not to please man, or lower the standard, or lessen the responsibility which is laid upon us. We dare not, and we must not, narrow the limit of our service, or the extent of our obedience.
