Disposition of Our Lives

 Augusta Iconography Webmuseum Bartholomewmartyr

My friend, Ronnie Stevens at the Danube International Church, Budapest, writes:

“God requires a disposition toward our own life controlled by four realities:

1. A grateful conviction of whence it came.
2. An abiding consciousness of Whose it is.
3. A growing understanding of what it is for.
4. A perpetual willingness to lay it down.”

* Painting is “The Martyrdom of Saint Bartholomew by Ribera, 1630, in the Prado, Madrid.
