2011Friends’ Calendar
In the light I have experience of the new creation in Christ Jesus, even thepassing away of the old things, and the new things coming instead thereof.The old heart gone, the hard heart gone, and a new and tender one insteadthereof. The old law of sin and death taken out of the way, and the law of theSpirit of life in Christ Jesus received in the place thereof. And the fear of thenew covenant put into the new heart (in which is the beginning andperfection of the heavenly wisdom), and the Spirit of God put within, toenlighten, enliven, and fill the mind with life and righteousness, and cause itto walk with God in the new and living way, and to know his statutes andjudgments, and do them.In the light the gospel-love is known and springs. In the darkness is enmity;but in the light is love. It is true indeed, that here the whole law is fulfilled,even of loving the Lord God with all the heart, soul, mind, and strength, andone's neighbour as one's self. Yea, here one is not only commanded to loveenemies, but taught and enabled so to do. Yea, keep but here in the light, noenmity can spring up, but only love to the greatest enemies, whom we have nocoals of wrath, but only of love to heap upon.Here I meet with, and partake of, a cool, meek, patient, tender, gentle, quiet,lowly spirit, which is of the Lord, and of much esteem with him. This is theLamb's nature, who is light; and this also is their nature who are of the Lamb,and walk in the light of the Lamb...
Isaac Penington, 1679

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish,yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction,which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceedingand eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things whichare seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things whichare seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen areeternal.
