Down into the valley

Having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8 “True religion lies deep; it is not a balloon hovering over us miles up in the air. It is like truth—it lies at the bottom of the well. We must go down, then, into religion, if we are to have it really in our hearts. The Lord Jesus Christ was ‘a Man of Sorrows, and acquainted with grief.’ He took the lowest, last, and least place. He was always down; so that if we are to be companions with the Lord Jesus Christ, we must go down with him—down into the valley, down into suffering, down into humiliation, down into trial, down into sorrow.”
J. C. Philpot (1802 – 1869)
