Afresh His Air to Breathe

Photo credit: weirena

The first and chief need of our Christian life is fellowship with God. The Divine life within us comes from God, and is entirely dependent upon Him. As I need every moment afresh the air to breathe, as the sun every moment afresh sends down its light, so it is only in direct living communication with God that my soul can be strong.

The manna of one day was corrupt when the next day came. I must every day have fresh grace from heaven, and I obtain it only in direct waiting upon God Himself. Begin each day by tarrying before God, and letting Him touch you. Take time to meet God.

--from The Deeper Christian Life by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray is on of my favorite classic Christian authors. I have just about every book he wrote. We can learn a lot about prayer, the presence of God, and the Christian walk from him. Thanks for bring the classic writers to us.

I also wanted to thank you for visiting my site and commenting on my "Safe in the Shade?" photo. I'm glad you liked it. I thought it was hilarious.
