Blood-stained Footprints

Psalm 89:19

"I have exalted one chosen out of the people."

Why was Christ chosen out of the people? Speak, my heart, for heart-thoughts are best. Was it not that He might be able to be our brother, in the blessed tie of kindred blood? Oh, what relationship there is between Christ and the believer! The believer can say, "I have a Brother in heaven; I may be poor, but I have a Brother who is rich, and is a King, and will He suffer me to want while He is on His throne? Oh, no! He loves me; He is my Brother." Believer, wear this blessed thought, like a necklace of diamonds, around the neck of thy memory; put it, as a golden ring, on the finger of recollection, and use it as the King's own seal, stamping the petitions of thy faith with confidence of success. He is a brother born for adversity, treat Him as such.

Christ was also chosen out of the people that He might know our wants and sympathize with us. "He was tempted in all points like as we are, yet without sin." In all our sorrows we have His sympathy, His mercy. Temptation, pain, disappointment, weakness, weariness, poverty-He knows them all, for He has felt all. Remember this, dear brother in Christ, and let it comfort thee. However difficult and painful the road, it is marked by the footsteps of our Saviour; and even when you reach the dark valley of the shadow of death, and the deep waters of the swelling Jordan, you will find His footprints there. In all places whithersoever we go, He has been our forerunner; each burden we have to carry, has once been laid on the shoulders of Immanuel (God with us).

"His way was much rougher and darker than mine

Did Christ, my Lord, suffer, and shall I repine?"

Take courage! Royal feet have left a blood-red track upon the road, and consecrated the thorny path for ever.

Prayer: Thank you Father for showing me the way. For living sinless thou every sin known hounded you from the gates of hell. Please help me trod the worn path that my Lord has beaten down. Help me to walk in His blood-stained footprints and strengthen me daily so that I may follow Him to the grave.
