CQOD: 03/25/06 -- Warfield: how to think of God
Christian Quotation of the DayMarch 25, 2006
Feast of the Annunciation of our Lord to the Virgin Mary
I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
-- Exodus 20:2 (ESV)
The Old Testament does not occupy itself with how Israel thought of God. Its concern is with how Israel ought to think of God. To it, the existence of God is not an open question, nor His nature, nor the accessibility of knowledge of Him. God Himself has taken care of that He has made Himself known to His people, and their business is not to feel after Him if haply they may fumblingly find Him, but to hearken to Him as He declares to them what and who He is.
... Benjamin B. Warfield (1851-1921)
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, in Your mercy, You have shown Yourself to us in Jesus Christ.
