Quotations for June, 2015

Feast of Justin, Martyr at Rome, c.165
Commemoration of Angela de Merici, Founder of the Institute of St. Ursula, 1540

It seems to me that the only way out is for the Christian movement to renounce party allegiance as primary and make the Kingdom of God primary. “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God...and all these things shall be added unto you.” But if we seek first the party, then all these things shall be subtracted from us—as now. After making the Kingdom first we could say to the parties: “We will stand with you to the degree that you stand for the Kingdom. When you break with that Kingdom, we break with you. For to us the Kingdom loyalty is first, last, and always.”

Most Christians are affected far more than they know by the standards and methods of the surrounding world. In these days when power and size and speed are almost universally admired, it seems to me particularly important to study afresh the “weakness,” the “smallness of entry,” and the “slowness” of God as He begins His vast work of reconstructing His disordered world. We are all tempted to take short cuts, to work for quick results, and to evade painful sacrifice. It is therefore essential that we should look again at love incarnate in a human being, to see God Himself at work within the limitations of human personality, and to base our methods on what we see Him do.

Phillips (1906-1982), Making Men Whole, London: Highway Press, 1952, p. 7-8 (see the book; see also Matt. 26:42; Isa. 42:1-4; 52:14; 53:2-7; Matt. 7:13; 18:2-3; 27:26-32; Luke 13:24; 14:33; John 10;9; 14:6; 19:1-3; 1 Cor. 1:27; Gal. 5:24; Phil. 3:7-9; more at Incarnation, Knowing God, Love, Patience, Temptation, Will of God, Work)

Feast of Edward King, Bishop of Lincoln, Teacher, 1910
Commemoration of Martyrs of Uganda, 1886 & 1978

If our common life is not a common course of humility, self-denial, renunciation of the world, poverty of spirit, and heavenly affection, we don’t live the lives of Christians.

Any lights shining on the wrong subject will mislead you. I focus on my Lord Jesus, the true light that enlightens every man. He does not blind me, dazzle me, or confuse me. He shines on my path to show me the way, shines on my thoughts to show me the truth, and shines on my life to lead me to Life, because He is the way, the truth, and the life. His light shines in the darkness, and the darkness cannot resist it.
... Luis Fernando Aragón, Pilgrim: One Thousand Days on the Road, Enumclaw, WA: WinePress Publishing, 2010, p. 98 (see the book; see also John 1:4-5; Ps. 16:11; 18:28; 119:105; John 14:6; Heb. 12:2; more at Blindness, Confusion, Darkness, Jesus, Life, Light, Truth, Way)

Feast of Boniface (Wynfrith) of Crediton, Archbishop of Mainz, Apostle of Germany, Martyr, 754

The pious community permits no one to be a sinner. Hence all have to conceal their sins from themselves and from the community. We are not allowed to be sinners. Many Christians would be unimaginably horrified if a real sinner were suddenly to turn up among the pious. So we remain alone with our sin, trapped in lies and hypocrisy, for we are in fact sinners.
... Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945), Life Together [1954], tr. Daniel W. Bloesch & James H. Burtness, Fortress Press, 2004, p. 108 (see the book; see also Ps. 101:7; Isa. 7:12; Matt. 23:5-6; 27:24; Luke 20:21-25; John 15:6; 18:28; Acts 5:1-10; Rom. 16:17-18; Gal. 6:3; 1 Pet. 5:8; more at Community, Hypocrisy, Sinner)

Saturday, June 6, 2015
Commemoration of Ini Kopuria, Founder of the Melanesian Brotherhood, 1945

For however devoted you are to [God], you can rest assured that He is immeasurably more devoted to you and He trusts you far more, for He is loyalty itself.
... Meister Eckhart (1260?-1327?), Treatises and Sermons, Harper, 1958, p. 83 (see the book; see also 1 Thess. 5:24; Ps. 9:10; 100:5; 111:5; 121:3-4; Neh. 9:7-8; Jer. 32:40; Matt. 23:37; John 8:26; 1 Cor. 1:9; Heb. 10:23; more at Devotion, God, Loyalty, Trust)

Sunday, June 7, 2015

The very first word that falls from His lips is a revelation of the will of God for man. “Blessed.” “Happy.” That is the Divine thought and intention for us. Sorrow, tears, pain, disappointment, all these may be, and are, of inestimable value in the Father’s discipline; but they are means to an end, made necessary by man’s sin. The end, in the purpose of God is blessedness. Happiness is that after which all men in every age seek, and the first note in the Saviour’s teaching reveals it, as what God is seeking also.
... G. Campbell Morgan (1863-1945), Discipleship, New York: Fleming H. Revell, 1897, p. 24 (see the book; see also Matt. 5:3-12; Ps. 1:1; 32:1-2; 84:12; Luke 6:20-26; 11:28; more at Blessing, Discipline, Happiness, Revelation, Sin, Teach, Will of God)

Feast of Thomas Ken, Bishop of Bath & Wells, Hymnographer, 1711
Commemoration of Roland Allen, Mission Strategist, 1947

It seems strange to us that there should be no exhortations to missionary zeal in the Epistles of St. Paul. There is one sentence of approval, “From you sounded out the word of the Lord,” but there is no insistence on the command of Christ to preach the Gospel... The Christians of the Four Provinces were certainly zealous in propagating the faith, and apparently needed no exhortation on the subject... Christians receive the Spirit of Jesus, and the Spirit of Jesus is a missionary spirit, the Spirit of Him Who came into the world to bring back lost souls to the Father. Naturally, when they receive that Spirit they begin to seek to bring back others, even as He did. [Continued tomorrow]
... Roland Allen (1869-1947), Missionary Methods: St. Paul’s or ours?, London: World Dominion Press, 1927, reprinted, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1962, p. 125-126 (see the book; see also 1 Thess. 1:8; Isa. 52:7; 66:19; Acts 1:8; Rom. 10:14-18; 2 Thess. 3:1; more at Christ, Commandment, Gospel, Jesus, Missionary, Preach, Spirit, Zeal)

Tuesday, June 9, 2015
Feast of Columba, Abbot of Iona, Missionary, 597
Commemoration of Ephrem of Syria, Deacon, Hymnographer, Teacher, 373

[Continued from yesterday]
The reason of our failure is, I believe, largely due to the fact that we quench that Spirit. We educate our converts to think... that none but duly appointed ministers may preach. We dread the possible mistakes of individual zeal. The result is that our converts hesitate to speak of religion to others. They throw the responsibility on the licensed evangelist and “the mission”...
We need to begin again to teach ourselves and our people what Spirit we are of, and to give liberty that the word of the Lord may have free course. When we do that, the Church will again reveal itself in its true character and become self-propagating.
... Roland Allen (1869-1947), Missionary Methods: St. Paul’s or ours?, London: World Dominion Press, 1927, reprinted, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1962, p. 126 (see the book; see also 1 Thess. 5:19; Ps. 51:11; Eph. 4:30; 1 Tim. 4:14; 2 Tim. 1:6-8; more at Church, Conversion, Evangelization, Failure, Hesitancy, Holy Spirit, Minister, Mission, Preach, Zeal)

Were Christians duly instructed how many lesser differences, in mind, and judgment, and practice, are really consistent with the nature, ends, and genuine fruit of the unity that Christ requires among them, it would undoubtedly prevail with them so as to manage themselves in their differences, by mutual forbearance and condescension in their love, as not to contract the guilt of being disturbers or breakers of it... To speak plainly, among all the churches in the world which are free from idolatry and persecution, it is not different opinions, nor a difference in judgment about revealed truths, nor a different practice in sacred administrations, but pride, self-interest, love of honour, reputation, and dominion, with the influence of civil or political intrigues and considerations, that are the true cause of that defect of evangelical unity that is at this day amongst them.

Thursday, June 11, 2015
Feast of Barnabas the Apostle

Grace is not looking for good men whom it may approve, for it is not grace but mere justice to approve goodness. But it is looking for condemned, guilty, speechless and helpless men whom it may save through faith, then sanctify and glorify.
... C. I. Scofield (1843-1921), “The Grace of God”, in The Fundamentals: The Famous Sourcebook of Foundational Biblical Truths, ed. R. A. Torrey, Kregel Academic, 1990, p. 402 (see the book; see also Ps. 41:4; 147:3; Matt. 9:12; Mark 2:17; Luke 19:10; Rom. 4:4-5; 7:12; 11:5-6; 1 Cor. 6:9-11; Rev. 3:17; more at Condemnation, Faith, Goodness, Grace, Guilt, Helplessness, Justice, Salvation, Sanctification)

Friday, June 12, 2015

Jesus is the creating and saving lord of our intellects as well as of our more precious hearts; nothing that he does not think, is worth thinking; no man can think as he thinks, except he be pure like him; no man can be pure like him, except he go with him, and learn from him. To put off obeying him till we find a credible theory concerning him, is to set aside the potion we know it our duty to drink, for the study of the various schools of therapy. You know what Christ requires of you is right.

George MacDonald (1824-1905), “Justice”, in Unspoken Sermons, Third Series, London: Longmans, Green, 1889, p. 152 (see the book; see also Heb. 10:38; Ps. 85:8; Matt. 11:29-30; 13:22; 19:21-22; Mark10:21-22; Luke 18:22-23; Jas. 1:6-8; 2 Pet. 2:20-21; more at Christ, Disciple, Duty, Jesus, Obedience, Purity, Salvation, Thought)

Commemoration of Gilbert Keith Chesterton, Apologist and Writer, 1936

Charity is a paradox, like modesty and courage. Stated baldly, charity certainly means one of two things—pardoning unpardonable acts, or loving unlovable people.
... Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936), Orthodoxy, London, New York: John Lane Company, 1909, p. 174 (see the book; see also Matt. 5:46-47; 9:10-11; Luke 6:32-35; 15:1; 19:7; 1 Cor. 6:11; more at Charity, Forgiveness, Love, Paradox)

Sunday, June 14, 2015
Commemoration of Richard Baxter, Priest, Hymnographer, Teacher, 1691

Lord, it belongs not to my care,
Whether I die or live;
To love and serve Thee is my share,
And this Thy grace must give.
If life be long I will be glad,
That I may long obey;
If short—yet why should I be sad
To soar to endless day?
Christ leads me through no darker rooms
Than He went through before;
He that unto God’s kingdom comes,
Must enter by this door.
Come, Lord, when grace has made me meet
Thy blessèd face to see;
For if Thy work on earth be sweet,
What will Thy glory be!
Then shall I end my sad complaints,
And weary, sinful days;
And join with the triumphant saints,
To sing Jehovah’s praise.
My knowledge of that life is small,
The eye of faith is dim;
But ’tis enough that Christ knows all,
And I shall be with him.
... Richard Baxter (1615-1691), in Memoirs of Margaret Baxter, London: Richard Edwards, 1826, p. 403 (see the book; see also Ps. 52:9; 91:16; Matt. 6:27; 7:13; John 13:15; Rom. 6:4-5,8; 2 Cor. 13:4; 1 Pet. 2:21; 3:10-11; more at Christ, Death & Resurrection, Grace, Knowing God, Love, Obedience, Praise, Service)

Feast of Evelyn Underhill, Mystical Writer, 1941

Every Christian is, as it were, part of the dust-laden air which still radiates the glowing Epiphany of God, catch and reflect His golden Light. Ye are the light of the world—but only because you are enkindled, made radiant by the One Light of the World. And being kindled, we have got to get on with it, be useful.
... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), The Light of Christ, New York: Longmans, Green, 1949, p. 41-42 (see the book; see also Matt. 5:14; Isa. 9:2; Acts 2:3; Eph. 5:13-14; Phil. 2:14-15; 1 Thess. 5:5; 1 Pet. 2:9; 2 Pet. 1:19; 1 John 1:7; more at Epiphany, God, Light, Revelation, World)

Tuesday, June 16, 2015
Feast of Richard of Chichester, Bishop, 1253
Commemoration of Joseph Butler, Bishop of Durham, Moral Philosopher, 1752

Just as character can only be truly rendered in narrative form, so the answer to the question “Who am I?” can only be given if we ask “What is my story?” and that can only be answered if there is an answer to the further question, “What is the whole story of which my story is a part?” To indwell the Bible is to live with an answer to those questions, to know who I am and who is the One to whom I am fully accountable.
... Lesslie Newbigin (1909-1998), The Gospel in a Pluralist Society, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1989, p. 100 (see the book; see also Luke 24:33-35; Ps. 22:30-31; 102:18; Mark 16:12-13; John 1:14; 16:13; Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 3:16; more at Bible, Destiny, Knowledge, Question)

Commemoration of Samuel & Henrietta Barnett, Social Reformers, 1913 & 1936

Come Love, come Lord, and that long day
For which I languish, come away;
When this dry soul those eyes shall see,
And drink the unseal’d source of Thee;
When glory’s sun faith’s shades shall chase,
Then for Thy veil give me Thy face.

Thursday, June 18, 2015

The resurrection and ascension prove there is no reason to make false dichotomy between the spiritual and the material. That is a totally non-biblical concept. The material and the spiritual are not opposed. The fact that our bodies are going to be raised also speaks of this.
... Francis A. Schaeffer (1912-1984), Pollution and the Death of Man [1970], reprint, Good News Publishers, 1992, p. 56 (see the book; see also Luke 24:39-43,50-51; John 20:19-20,27; 1 Cor. 15:42; 1 Tim. 3:16; 1 John 4:2-3; 2 John 1:7; more at Ascension, Proof, Resurrection)

Friday, June 19, 2015
Commemoration of Sundar Singh of India, Sadhu, Evangelist, Teacher, 1929

The hunger and the thirst of this heart of mine can be satisfied only with Thee who hast given it birth. O Creator mine! Thou hast created my heart for Thyself alone, and not for another, therefore this my heart can find no rest or ease save in Thee, in Thee who hast both created it and set in it this very longing for rest. Take away then from my heart all that is opposed to Thee, and enter and abide and rule for ever. Amen.
... Sadhu Sundar Singh (1889-1929), At the Master’s Feet, Fleming H. Revell, 1922, p. 13 (see the book; see also Ps. 42:1-2; 63:1; 84:2; 143:6-7; Isa. 26:8-9; John 4:13-14; 7:37; more at Heart, Longing, Prayers, Rest, Salvation, Satisfaction)

Saturday, June 20, 2015

It is for Christ’s sake that we believe in the Scriptures, but it is not for the Scriptures’ sake that we believe in Christ.
... Martin Luther (1483-1546) (see the book; see also Matt. 22:43; John 1:1; 1 John 1:1-2; 4:1-3; more at Belief, Bible, Christ)

Sunday, June 21, 2015

Our lives are full of supposes. Suppose this should happen, or suppose that should happen; what could we do; how could we bear it? But, if we are living in the “high tower” of the dwelling place of God, all these supposes will drop out of our lives. We shall be “quiet from the fear of evil,” for no threatenings of evil can penetrate into the “high tower” of God. Even when walking through the valley of the shadow of death, the psalmist could say, “I will fear no evil”; and, if we are dwelling in God, we can say so too.
... Hannah Whitall Smith (1832-1911), God of All Comfort, ch. 8 (see the book; see also Ps. 23:4-6; Matt. 6:27; Luke 12:25-26; Phil. 4:6-7; 1 Pet. 5:6-7; more at Death, Evil, Fear, God, Life)

Monday, June 22, 2015
Feast of Alban, first Martyr of Britain, c.209

The dove descending breaks the air
With flame of incandescent terror
Of which the tongues declare
The one discharge from sin and error.
The only hope, or else despair
Lies in the choice of pyre or pyre—
To be redeemed from fire by fire.
Who then devised the torment? Love.
Love is the unfamiliar Name
Behind the hands that wove
The intolerable shirt of flame
Which human power cannot remove.
We only live, only suspire
Consumed by either fire or fire.
... T. S. Eliot (1888-1965), from Four Quartets, The Complete Poems and Plays, 1909-1950, Boston: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1952, p. 143-144 (see the book; see also John 1:23-33; Deut. 4:24; Matt. 3:16; Mark 1:10; Luke 3:21-22; Acts 2:2-3; Heb. 12:28-29; more at Despair, Fire, Flame, Holy Spirit, Hope, Love, Pentecost, Redemption, Sin, Terror)

Tuesday, June 23, 2015
Feast of Etheldreda, Abbess of Ely, c.678

We cannot have one spark of real humility till we are abased before God, as guilty, helpless, and undone creatures, who have no hope but in the tender mercy of God in Christ Jesus. We must, as far as respects all hope in ourselves, feel ourselves in the very condition of the fallen angels, whose sin we have followed, and whose punishment we are doomed to share. Indeed, indeed, this is our very state, whether we know it or not: and it becomes us to seek the knowledge of it, and to live under a sense of it every day, and all the day long. We should never appear either before God or man in any other dress than this.
... Charles Simeon (1759-1836), Horae Homileticae, v. XX, London: Holdsworth and Ball, 1833, p. 270 (see the book; see also Rom. 7:9-10; Isa. 6:5; Eph. 2:12-13; Heb. 11:1; 1 Pet. 1:3-5; more at Abasement, Christ, Day, God, Helplessness, Humility, Jesus, Life, Mercy, Sin)

Wednesday, June 24, 2015
Feast of the Birth of John the Baptist

Can any thing in this world be more foolish than to think that all this rare fabric of heaven and earth can come by chance, when all the skill of art is not able to make an oyster?
... Jeremy Taylor (1613-1667), The Whole Works of the Right Rev. Jeremy Taylor, D.D., v. V, London: Ogle, Duncan & Co., 1822, Sermon XX, p. 298-299 (see the book; see also Luke 12:25-26; Pr. 16:33; Matt. 5:36; 6:27; more at Apologetics, Atheism, Creation, Folly)

Thursday, June 25, 2015

On the divine side, I assume that God has been willing and competent to arrange for the Bible, including its record of Jesus, to emerge and be preserved in ways that will secure his purposes for it among human beings worldwide. Those who actually believe in God will be untroubled by this. I assume that he did not and would not leave his message to humankind in a form that can only be understood by a handful of late-twentieth-century professional scholars, who cannot even agree among themselves on the theories that they assume to determine what the message is. The Bible is, after all, God’s gift to the world through the Church, not to the scholars.
... Dallas Willard (1935-2013), The Divine Conspiracy, HarperCollins, 1997, p. xvi (see the book; see also Isa. 55:11; Ps. 1:2; 12:6; 19:7-11; 119:89; Luke 24:27,45; John 5:39-40; Rom. 1:1-4; 3:1-2; 1 Cor. 15:3-5; Col. 3:16; 2 Tim. 3:14-17; Heb. 4:12; Jas. 1:21-23; more at Bible, Church, Gifts, God, Jesus, Purpose, World)

Friday, June 26, 2015

The most perfect preparation for this future, whatever it may be, is to die to every will of our own, and yield ourselves wholly up to his; we shall in this frame of mind, be ready to receive all the grace suitable to whatever state it shall be the will of God to develop in and around us.
... François Fénelon (1651-1715), Spiritual Progress: or, Instructions in the Divine Life of the Soul, New York: M. W. Dodd, 1853, p. 79-80 (see the book; see also Eph. 6:11-17; Matt. 6:24; 10:38; Mark 8:38; 10:21; Luke 9:23; 14:27; Rom. 13:12; 2 Cor. 10:4; 12:9; 1 Thess. 5:8; more at Death, Future, Grace, Will of God)

Saturday, June 27, 2015

The spirit of prayer makes us so intimate with God that we scarcely pass through an experience before we speak to Him about it, either in supplication, in sighing, in pouring out our woes before Him, in fervent requests, or in thanksgiving and adoration.
... O. Hallesby (1879-1961), Prayer, London: Inter-Varsity Fellowship, 1943, reprint, Augsburg Fortress Books, 1975, 1994, p. 172 (see the book; see also 1 Thess. 5:17-18; Ps. 5:1; 18:49; 38:9; Luke 18:1; 21:36; Rom. 8:26; Eph. 6:18; Col. 4:2; Heb. 4:15; 1 Pet. 4:7; more at Experience, God, Praise, Prayer, Spirit, Thanksgiving)

Sunday, June 28, 2015
Feast of Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons, Teacher, Martyr, c.200

There is no coercion with God, but a good will [towards us] is present with Him continually. And therefore does He give good counsel to all. And in man, as well as in angels, He has placed the power of choice (for angels are rational beings), so that those who had yielded obedience might justly possess what is good, given indeed by God, but preserved by themselves. On the other hand, they who have not obeyed shall, with justice, be not found in possession of the good, and shall receive condign punishment: for God did kindly bestow on them what was good; but they themselves did not diligently keep it, nor deem it something precious, but poured contempt upon His supereminent goodness.
... Irenaeus (c.130-c.200), from Adversus Haereses, The Writings of Irenaeus, v. II, Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1869, IV.xxxvii.1, p. 36 (see the book; see also Rom. 2:3-4; Dan. 12:2; Matt. 8:11-12; 23:37; 25:41; Rom. 2:5,7; Rev. 12:7-9; more at Choices, Contempt, Counsel, Giving, God, Goodness, Justice, Man, Obedience, Possession, Punishment, Reason)

Monday, June 29, 2015
Feast of Peter & Paul, Apostles

The Kingdom of God in the New Testament is both the life and the purpose of the world according as they agree with the intentions of the Creator. It is the efficacious and definitive shield against the threat which followed and had to follow sin, against the fatal danger, the annihilation which lay in wait for the world because the world is only a creature. The Kingdom of God is the final victory over sin.
... Karl Barth (1886-1968), Prayer, Westminster John Knox Press, 2002, p. 35 (see the book; see also 2 Cor. 5:17-21; Luke 17:20-21; Acts 2:38; 1 Pet. 1:3-5; 3:13; 1 John 2:1-2; 4:10; 5:3-4; Rev. 21:1; more at Danger, God, Kingdom, Life, Purpose, Sin, Victory, Will of God, World)

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

According to the Christian conception, a miracle is wrought by the immediate power of God... by the very God to whom the regularity of nature itself is due—by the God, moreover, whose character is known through the Bible... It is not an uncaused event, but an event that is caused by the very source of all the order that is in the world. It is dependent altogether upon the least arbitrary and most firmly fixed of all the things that are—namely upon the character of God.
... J. Gresham Machen (1881-1937), Christianity and Liberalism, The Macmillan Company, 1923, p. 87 (see the book; see also Matt. 14:14; Gen. 1:1; Matt. 12:38-39; Mark 16:20; 1 Cor. 1:22-24; 12:7; Heb. 2:4; more at Bible, God, Miracle, Nature, Power)
