Wetzel: Jesus will prevail

Sunday, May 29, 2016
    [Jesus:] “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
    —Luke 6:37-38 (NIV)
    Jesus will prevail. His Church will prevail. Everything else is just passing away. Our current leadership [of the Episcopal Church USA] will die one day, as will you and I. It is not for us to condemn others, but to witness to them of Him who is in our lives. Even now, the enemy is at work, but Jesus will prevail. I know a God whose mercy knows no limits and whose power has no restraints.
    ... Todd H. Wetzel (b. 1946), Steadfast Faith, Dallas, Texas: Latimer Press, 1997, p. 170 (see the book)
    See also Luke 6:37-38; Matt. 28:19; Luke 24:46-47; John 15:27; Acts 1:8; 2:32
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, in Your mercy, protect those who are under affliction for Your sake.
