Rutherford: shaping the stones

Friday, June 29, 2012
    Feast of Peter & Paul, Apostles
    Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
    —James 1:4 (NIV)
    Faith hath cause to take courage from our very afflictions; the devil is but a whetstone to sharpen the faith and patience of the saints. I know that he but heweth and polisheth stones all this time for the New Jerusalem.
    ... Samuel Rutherford (1600-1664), Letters of Samuel Rutherford, Edinburgh: William Whyte & Co., 1848, letter, March 9, 1637, p. 218 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may You shape me in Your image.
