CQOD: 01/01/06 -- Markham: Christus

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 1, 2006
Feast of the Naming & Circumcision of Jesus
    "I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me.
    -- John 5:30 (ESV)

    Why does He make our hearts so strangely still,
        Why stands He forth so stately and so tall?
    Because He has no self to serve, no will
        That does not seek the welfare of the All.
    ... Edwin Markham (1852-1940)

Quiet time reflection:
    Empty me, Lord, of all selfish ambition, and send where You want to.
