Reflecting Christ — is the 14th daily devotional book to come from the pen of Ellen G. White. Her writings are so Christ-centered, so practical, that they continue to provide an almost endless source of materials that are well suited for one’s devotional life.
Reflecting Christ — is a theme that recurs throughout the writings of Ellen White. Mrs. White loved the Lord deeply and she earnestly endeavored to walk in his footsteps. She always encouraged others to look to Christ as their shining example. Highlighting this theme, she wrote: “As images and objects are reflected from the face of the mirror, when revealed by the sunlight, so these themes will be mirrored in the mind when illumined by the love of Christ.”
Reflecting Christ — should be every Christian’s highest goal. The pursuit of this objective, under the impetus of the indwelling spirit of God and the grace of Christ, can bring with it only peace and true happiness.
Many of these unpublished items are from personal heart-to-heart messages sent to individuals–messages that come to us today with the same earnest appeal, the same tender admonition and encouragement, as when they were written. Of special interest are several pages which contain extracts from early morning entries in Ellen White's diary, and give the reader significant glimpses into her personal prayer life.
A daily devotional book drawn from Mrs. White's writings, this volume touches every part of the Christian's life.
Ellen White states that "Christ's favorite theme was the paternal character and abundant love of God" (Testimonies, Vol. 6, p. 55). This also seems to be Ellen White's favorite theme.
May you find the serenity that comes from knowing the One whose Spirit inspired these pages.
The Father's love for humanity provides an endless theme for contemplation and study. This vital topic unfolds on every page of Our Father Cares. From the great sacrifice of giving His Son, to the calling we have as His children on earth, the study of His love for us personally will encourage and guide us on our upward journey.
Key statements from Ellen G. White books, as well from many articles in the journals of the church are included. Numerous statements from unpublished manuscripts enrich the presentation.
These daily readings each focus on the life and character of the Saviour, Jesus Christ. They lift Him up as our Teacher, Healer, King, and Redeemer. Each devotional entry is designed to bring the reader to a deeper, more complete understanding of and relationship with Him who bore our sins. For we know that “by beholding Jesus we become changed into His likeness.”
Daily readings— drawn from letters, manuscripts, and other Ellen White sources— pull together to illustrate the background, purpose, and enormity of the great controversy battle. And, as the title suggests, each reading declares the power of God to overcome in the fierce conflict, despite the foreboding circumstances.
Prophets and priests, kings and apostles, parade though the inspired pages of this daily devotional. Arranged roughly in chronological order, each reading focuses on some decisive moment in salvation history, and shows how the lessons of the past illuminate our future. In the exploits and failures of saints and sinners we find counsel, comfort and hope for today a passing of the torch so that the same faith that blazed in God's servants of old might burn anew in us.
This daily devotional book has been compiled largely from unpublished and out-of-print Spirit of Prophecy materials. Each day's reading is designed to bring you into a closer connection with our Lord and give you a deeper understanding of His character. Sections include insight on Christ's condescension for humanity, the work of the angels, how to maintain a wholly-devoted heart, and the special relationship God has with His church on Earth.
