THE CHRISTIAN QUOTATION OF THE DAY
Christ, our Light
Monday, March 12, 2018

In holy Scripture is fully contained what we ought to do, and what to eschew; what to believe, what to love, and what to look for at God’s hands at length. In these Books we shall find the Father from whom, the Son by whom, and the Holy Ghost in whom all things have their being and keeping up, and these three persons to be but one God, and one substance... Read [Holy Scripture] humbly with a meek and lowly heart, to the intent you may glorify God, and not your self, with the knowledge of it: and read it not without daily praying to God, that he would direct your reading to good effect: and take upon you to expound it no further than you can plainly understand it. For, as Saint Augustine saith, ‘the knowledge of holy Scripture is a great, large, and a high place, but the door is very low, so that the high and arrogant man cannot run in; but he must stoop low, and humble himself, that shall enter into it...’ The humble man may search any truth boldly in the Scripture, without any danger of error. [Continued tomorrow]
... “A Fruitful exhortation to the reading of holy Scripture” [1562], from Certain sermons, or, Homilies appointed to be read in churches, Church of England, London: Prayer-Book and Homily Society, 1852, pp. 2,6 (see the book; see also Eph. 5:15-17; Matt. 26:53-56; Acts 8:27-35; Rom. 3:1-2; 15:4; 1 Tim. 4:16; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; more at Arrogance, Belief, Bible, Father, God, Holy Spirit, Humility, Love, Meekness, Scripture, Son)
