Singh: not of the world

Wednesday, January 21, 2015
    Feast of Agnes, Child Martyr at Rome, 304
    [Jesus praying:] “I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world.”
    —John 17:14 (NIV)
    Even though I am in the midst of danger, temptation, sin and sorrow of this world, through Him who gave His life I am saved. The sea is salty and the fish lives all its life in it. But it never gets salty, because it has life. Even so if we receive life from Him, though in the world, we are not of the world. Not only here, but also in Heaven we shall find ourselves in Him.
    ... Sadhu Sundar Singh (1889-1929), The Message of Sadhu Sundar Singh, B. H. Streeter & A. J. Appasamy, New York: The Macmillan Company, 1922, p. 42 (see the book)
    See also John 17:14-18; 1:4; Rom. 6:23; 8:1-2,35; 1 Cor. 10:13; 2 Cor. 2:14; 5:17
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are my eternal source of life.
