Men have had their moments,

Glittering in the sun,

Because they ruled, were rich,

Or had a little run.

Then their glist’ning clouded,

Dulled into a dark night,

Their short day was over,

Out of mind, out of sight.

But God – awesome contrast,

Has “ever after” fame.

Glorify Him (not man),

Honor His brilliant name.

 …the baptism, the anointing, the fullness, the abiding, the indwelling, the constant communion, the sealing, the earnest, the Holy Spirit are all equivalent terms expressive of the state of Christian perfection. 

                – Daniel Steele, Love Enthroned, (NY: Eaton Mains, 1875), 101.
