CAN TWO WALK TOGETHER . . .? --- Amos 3:3. C. H. V. Bogatzky's Daily Devotions April 6.

The Sixth of April.

CAN TWO WALK TOGETHER . . .? --- Amos 3:3.

"Can two walk together, except they be agreed? --- Amos 3:3.

They must be agreed in heart, in affection, in will, in their inclinations and pursuits, or they cannot walk together in any mutual confidence and comfortable communion; "What communion hath light with darkness? and what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?" --- 2 Corinthians 6:14, 15.

We cannot walk with Jesus without a living union with him, a hearty love to him, and a holy delight in him; nor can he walk with us on any other principles.

We cannot walk with each other without mutual love. A living union with Jesus, cemented and sealed by his Holy Spirit, is the only bond of union and agreement between Christians, whereby they can walk together, to the honour of God, and their own benefit.

Alas! how much it is to be lamented that those who, through grace, are thus united, should also be so visibly shy of each other, because they differ in lesser matters! O my dear Saviour, help me to be more agreed with thee, and walk more closely with thee, and in more real affection and love with all those who are really thine, to the praise and glory of thy grace. Amen and Amen.

May the grace of Christ our Saviour
And the Father's boundless love,
With the Holy Spirit's favour,
Rest upon us from above.

Thus shall we abide in union
With each other and the Lord,
And possess, in sweet communion,
Joys which earth cannot afford.
