Jesus In Your Heart

By Mary Wilder Tileston

      That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith.
      EPHESIANS 3:17

      Christ in you, the hope of glory.
      COLOSSIANS 1:27

      ENTER my opening heart;
      Fill in with love and peace and light from heaven;
      Give me Thyself--for all in Thee is given;
      Come--never to depart.

      WHEREVER thou goest, whatever thou dost at home, or abroad, in the field, or at church, do all in a desire of union with Christ, in imitation of His tempers and inclinations, and look upon all as nothing, but that which exercises, and increases the spirit and life of Christ in thy soul. From morning to night keep Jesus in thy heart, long for nothing, desire nothing, hope for nothing but to have all that is within thee changed into the spirit and temper of the holy Jesus. This new birth in Christ, thus firmly believed and continually desired, will do everything that thou wantest to have done in thee, it will dry up all the springs of vice, stop all the workings of evil in thy nature, it will bring all that is good into thee, it will open all the gospel within thee, and thou wilt know what it is to be taught of God.
