The Pressure of Christ’s Life On Ours

January 29, 2018

An excerpt from Lloyd Ogilvie’s ‘The Bush Is Still Burning’:

In Trinity Church, Boston, there is a remarkable statue of Phillips Brooks by Saint-Gaudens. The spiritual giant stands at a pulpit with an open Bible. Behind him stands Jesus with his hand on the preacher’s shoulder. The reason for Brooks’ greatness is preserved for posterity.

In a letter to a friend he wrote “All experience comes to be more and more the pressure of Christ’s life upon ours. I cannot tell how personal this grows to me. He is here. He knows me and I know Him. It is no figure of speech; it is the realest thing in the world”.
