Lover Sermon Illustrations

Mender of bruised reeds­—
O patient lover!
'Tis love my brother needs—
Make me a lover,
That this poor reed may be
Mended and tuned for Thee—
O Lord, of even me
Make a true lover.
Kindler of smoking flax,
O ardent lover!
Give what Thy servant lacks—
Make me a lover,
That this poor flax may be
Kindled, aflame for Thee—
O Lord, of even me
Make a true lover.—Amy Carmichael

(Isa. 42. 3; John 13. 34, 35)
