The Wanderer

As I walked through the wilderness of this world …

Looking over the river

David McIntyre, author of The Hidden Life of Prayer (Westminster/Amazon.co.uk/.com), was a minister who served the same congregation for many years. In his jubilee year, a celebration was held, at which many tributes were paid. McIntyre responded in a speech in which he praised others, before closing with these words:

My ministry must now be nearing its close. I have entered that region which lies along the frontier of the King’s country, where as John Bunyan tells us, the contract between the Bride and the Bridegroom is oft-times renewed. It is a covenant of free grace: not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us. On his word, and on his completed work, I rest. (Hidden Life, 11)

This is a good way to end.
