IF I slip into the place that can be filled by Christ alone, making myself the first necessity to a soul instead of leading it to fasten upon Him, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
IF I refuse to allow one who is dear to me to suffer for the sake of Christ, IF I do not see such suffering as the greatest honor that can be offered to any follower of the Crucified, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
An exert from Amy Carmichael's book, IF. This is a deep devotional book from the hand and heart of a dear Christian servant who gave her life to reach out to the "forsaken and abused" children of the world. I leave no comment of my own. Let your heart "hear" the message of Amy's soul and ask the Holy Spirit to apply it's message to your own. - Pastor Eckardt
The current blog entries feature IF quotes from Amy Carmichael, who was a Protestant Christian missionary that served in India for 55 years without furlough and wrote many books about the missionary work there.
