Trueblood: Who seeks us

Sunday, March 29, 2015
    Palm Sunday
    Commemoration of Jack Winslow, Missionary, Evangelist, 1974
    [Jesus:] “Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little.”
    —Luke 7:47 (NIV)
    We believe love is a moral absolute because it reflects the nature of God. Genuine religion thus differs from philosophy or ethics, however noble and necessary they are. True religion is not man’s search for the good life, important as that might be; neither is it our effort to find God, inevitable as that may be; true religion is our response to Him who seeks us. It is not an argument for God, but a response to God’s love.
    ... Elton Trueblood (1900-1994), The Life We Prize, New York: Harper & Brothers, 1951, p. 211 (see the book)
    See also Luke 7:47; John 3:16; 15:16; 2 Cor. 5:14-15; Tit. 3:4-7; 1 John 4:10,19
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your love compels me to seek You.
