Jones: following the living

Monday, September 15, 2014
    The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
    —John 1:14 (NIV)
    It is not said in the Book, “The Word became printer’s ink,” but it is said, “The Word became flesh.” Had the Word become printer’s ink, we should have followed a code. Instead our code is a Character. We follow a living mind instead of a fixed letter.
    ... E. Stanley Jones (1884-1973), The Christ of the American Road, Abingdon-Cokesbury Press, 1944, p. 20 (see the book)
    See also John 1:14; Isa. 51:6; Rom. 2:29; 3:20; 4:14-16; 7:6,9-11; 2 Cor. 3:6; Gal. 3:10-12; Col. 2:13-14; Heb. 8:13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You live to lead Your people.
