MARK 14:23 – 4
And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, etc.
That which bloomed out of the life of Jesus, filling the world with the odor of divinity, was the ensample for man, and this coincidence of the human and the divine must yet appear in our lives. It may take a longer life than that of mortals to quicken it into vitality. Buried deep it may be from human sight, and lying dormant for thousands of years, like the wheat found in Egyptian tombs, but in the Father’s house, — the many chambers of Soul — it must sometime fully disclose its identity with the spirit of Jesus. Heaven only knows what searching methods, what agonies, what ages of crime, what revolutions, may be required for this imperishable germ of greatness and goodness, to struggle up to freedom.
