Ellul: no recipe

Thursday, September 2, 2010
    Commemoration of Martyrs of Papua New Guinea, 1942
    And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
    —Ephesians 4:30 (NIV)
    The Christian ethic ... is not a recipe for righteousness; it is not a synthesis of Christian faith and the world’s values; it is not a way of enabling Christians to live without the Holy Spirit. It is the very opposite of all this.
    ... Jacques Ellul (1912-1994), The Presence of the Kingdom, tr. Olive Wyon, Philadelphia: Wesminster Press, 1951, p. 23 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your people depend on Your continual grace.
