Oman: uncertainty

Sunday, July 25, 2010
    Feast of James the Apostle
    Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
    —John 4:13-14 (NIV)
    Every man has in his own experience some knowledge of the perplexing uncertainty of this whirligig of time. Yet with his best thought, and largest opportunity, and the application of his highest ability, he cannot penetrate far. But the Christ of God unfolds both its meaning, and its order. He shows that the goal is freedom, and the guidance love... In this way Christ appeals direct to the spirit of man, not by its special acquirements or special ability, but through its common needs and common tasks.
    ... John Oman (1860-1939), Vision and Authority, London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1928, p. 109 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, my needs are met through Your grace.
