This is a devotional written by my grandfather, Laurance W. Long.
“When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek” (Psalm 27:8).
Communion with God may be likened to a series of echoes. When God speaks, and “echo” response should come from His children. An echo is immediate. It does not vary from the original . . . it is an accurate reproduction. God says SEEK . . . we should seek. God says GIVE . . . our echo should be to give. SERVE, serve. LOVE, love. OBEY, obey . . . in complete conformity with the command. Then, in turn, the child may ask his God for mercy. And God’s reply is MERCY. Bread, BREAD. Grace, GRACE. Peace, PEACE. Communion with God . . . a series of echoes going both ways, all the day.
