Calvary love…

“The picture before us is as of a river.  Stand on its banks, and contemplate the flow of waters.  A minute passes, and another.  Is it the same stream still?  Yes.  But is it the same water?  No.  The liquid mass that passed you a few seconds ago fills now another section of the channel; new water has displaced it, or if you please, replaced it; water instead of water.  And so hour by hour, and year by year, and century by century, the process holds; one stream, other waters- living, not stagnant, because always in the great identity there is perpetual exchange.  Grace takes the place of grace [and love takes the place of love]; ever new, ever old, ever the same, ever fresh and young, for hour by hour, for year by year, through Christ.”
