CQOD: 01/17/07 -- Drummond: Christ changes men

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 17, 2007
Feast of Antony of Egypt, Abbot, 356
Commemoration of Charles Gore, Bishop, Teacher, Founder of the Community of the Resurrection, 1932
    Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
    -- Philippians 2:5 (KJV)

    Souls are not made sweet by taking [ill tempers] out, but by putting something in—a great Love, a new Spirit, the Spirit of Christ. Christ, the Spirit of Christ, interpenetrating ours, sweetens, purifies, transforms all. This can only eradicate what is wrong, renovate and regenerate, and rehabilitate the inner man. Will-power does not change men. Time does not change men. Christ does. Therefore “Let that mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.”
    ... Henry Drummond (1851-1897), “The Greatest Thing in the World” [1892]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Christ, I seek Your mind.
