Gathering in Christ
He saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.”
I am blind to the things that belong to my peace. It is an appalling thing that we can be in the place where the Spirit of God should be getting at us unhinderingly and yet increase our condemnation in God’s sight [Ed: this does not mean loss of salvation.] God holds us responsible for what we do not see…[simply because] the disposition has not been yielded. The unfathomable sadness of the “might have been!” Never be afraid when God brings back the past. Let memory have its way. It is a minister of God with its rebuke and chastisement and sorrow. God will turn what “might have been” into a wonderful culture for the future.
