Will these Thought Provokers help you meditate on the Gospel text for Sunday, Dec. 21, 2014?

“Will you please tell me,” said a Christian woman to a minister, “what consecration means?”
Holding out a blank sheet of paper, the pastor replied, “It is to sign your name at the bottom of this blank sheet, and let God fill it in as He wills.

* * * * * * * * * *
Reflect that true humility consists to a great extent
in being ready for what the Lord desires to do with you,
and happy that He should do it,
and in always considering yourselves unworthy to be called His servants.

Teresa of Avila
* * * * * * * * * *
I find doing the will of God
leaves me no time for disputing about his plans.

George Macdonald
* * * * * * * * * *
I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all;
but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.

Martin Luther
* * * * * * * * * *
He cannot bless us unless he has us.
When we try to keep within us an area that is our own,
we try to keep an area of death.
Therefore, in love, He claims all.
There’s no bargaining with Him.

C.S. Lewis
