CQOD: 07/26/06 -- Whitefield: such feeble return

Christian Quotation of the Day

July 26, 2006
Commemoration of Anne & Joachim, parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary
    But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
    -- Philippians 3:7 (KJV)

    Gladly shall I come whenever bodily strength will allow to join my testimony with yours in Olney pulpit, that God is love. As yet I have not recovered from the fatigues of my American expedition. My shattered bark is scarce worth docking any more. But I would fain wear, not rust, out. Oh! my dear Mr. Newton, indeed and indeed I am ashamed that I have done and suffered so little for Him that hath done and suffered so much for ill and hell-deserving me.
    ... George Whitefield (1714-1770), letter to John Newton

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, nothing can match Your presence in my life.
