CHRIST’S DESIRE FOR HIS PEOPLE

IF our minds were in perfect harmony with the mind of Christ our views would in many respects be greatly altered. Many things that we now desire and long for would lose much of their attractiveness; and other things that we dread and shrink from would cease to be unwelcome. The great Redeemer is in this article giving utterance to the desires of his heart on behalf of his people.
