I have always felt sorry for Andrew Bonar. When people mention him they nearly always add the suffix "brother of the hymn writer" or else "biographer of M'Cheyne" Yet his own diary is spiritual treasure. Although he was a small man, he was a spiritual giant. His daughter Marjory wrote a book entitled "Heavenly Springs" in which she gathered some of her fathers sayings putting them together as Sunday meditations. I try to read one section each Sunday morning. Here is a selection from the section "God in Christ" that I read recently. Visit us with thy salvation-for there are folds and folds of the robes of righteousness that we would fain have thee unfold to us. It is a time of great political excitement. But I am less moved by all such changes; my time on earth may be soon finished. The atoning blood is more than ever precious to me. The righteousness of Christ is more than ever glorious in my view.Christ himself is altogether lovely I can hardly believe that man is a Christian who does not every day betake himself to the atoning work of Christ. If you can do without the blood, you are a backslider. Do not put religion in the place of Christ. The heart of religion is to know Christ, and to know Him better, and to know him still better. then to see him as He is, and to be made like Him. Many want salvation but they do not want the Saviour. Each plant needs a whole sun and each of us needs a whole Saviour A God not seen through Christ is no god at all. Christ does not say,'I will show you the way' but 'I am the Way.' He does not merely say 'I will give you the bread of life,' but 'I am the Bread of Life'
