A harp for our Christ

Let us allow Christ to speak through us.  He desires it more than we do.  For He made this instrument and wouldn’t want it to be useless and idle.  He always wants to keep it in His hands.  Why, then, don’t you make it useful for the Maker’s hand?  Why do you allow your soul to be unstrung, relaxed through luxury, and allow the whole harp to be useless to Him?  One should keep all its parts completely stretched, well strung and reinforced with spiritual salt.  For if Christ sees your soul tuned this way, He will make His music through it.  When this has taken place, you will see angels leaping for joy—archangels and the cherubim, too.  So then, let us become worthy of His spotless hands.  Let us invite Him to strike our hearts.
