Must we long for the onions of Egypt?

(by Thomas Adams)

"Christ in you, the hope of glory!" Colossians 1:27

"Christ lives in me!" Galatians 2:20

Is not the life of Christ in us — above all earthly sweetness?

He who has come to manhood — throws away his rattles and dolls! Are not the grapes of Canaan satisfying enough — but must we long for the onions of Egypt?

He who has the living waters of Jesus flowing in his heart — is foolish if he stoops to the puddles of vanity, or seeks contentment in the world. He will not suck on the breasts of this world, and seek to solace himself in its vanities!
