Wycliffe: the source of ordination

Thursday, December 31, 2009
    Commemoration of John Wycliffe, Reformer, 1384
    But I do not think I am in the least inferior to those “super-apostles.” I may not be a trained speaker, but I do have knowledge. We have made this perfectly clear to you in every way.
    —2 Corinthians 11:5-6 (NIV)
    In order to the existence of such a ministry in the Church, there is requisite an authority received from God, and consequently power and knowledge imparted from God for the exercise of such ministry; and where a man possesses these, although the bishop has not laid hands upon him according to his traditions, God has Himself appointed him.
    ... John Wycliffe (1320?-1384), from a late sermon
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You alone call Your servants.
