As we reflect on the reality of the Resurrection and our chaplaincy ministry, it has been fruitful to meditate on the verses attached this week. Another thought that came to my mind this morning was the necessary and vital focal point of all our ministry because of the Resurrection. I thought I might share John Newton's advice in one of his pastoral letters in 1760..."The best advice I can send, or the best wish I can form for you, in that you may have an abiding and experimental sense of those words of the apostle which are just now upon my mind--"Looking unto Jesus." The duty , the privilege, the safety, the unspeakable happiness, of a believer, are all comprised in that one sentence...Looking unto Jesus is the object that melts the soul into love and gratitude."
