CQOD: 01/19/08 -- Rutherford: the pearl

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 19, 2008
Commemoration of Wulfstan, Bishop of Worcester, 1095
    [Jesus:] "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it."
    -- Matthew 13:45 (NIV)

    See that you buy the field where the Pearl is; sell all, and make a purchase of salvation. Think it not easy: for it is a steep ascent to eternal glory: many are lying dead by the way, slain with security.
    ... Samuel Rutherford (1600-1664), letter, Feb. 20, 1637

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your Kingdom is more precious than the whole world.
