Schaeffer: complacency

Wednesday, April 22, 2015
    [Jesus:] “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
    —John 14:26 (NIV)
    A Christian can never say, “I knew the power of the Holy Spirit yesterday, so today I can be at rest.” It is one of the existential realities of the Christian life to stand before God consciously recognizing our need.
    ... Francis A. Schaeffer (1912-1984), No Little People, Downer Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 1974, reprint, Crossway, 2003, p. 66-67 (see the book)
    See also John 14:26; Ps. 42:1-2; Luke 12:31; Acts 4:12; 1 Cor. 2:14; Heb. 6:4-6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You constantly renew Your people.
