IF something I am asked to do for another feels burdensome; IF, yielding to an inward unwillingness, I avoid doing it, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
IF I become entangled in any "inordinate affection"; IF things or places or people hold me back from obedience to my Lord, 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.
