Muggeridge: communicating the Gospel

Tuesday, November 15, 2016
    Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
    —1 John 4:11-12 (NIV)
    The Christian religion finds expression thus, in the love of those who love Christ, more comprehensibly and accessibly than in metaphysical or ethical statements. It is an experience rather than a conclusion, a way of life rather than an ideology; [it is] grasped through the imagination rather than understood through the mind, belonging to the realm of spiritual rather than intellectual perception; reaching quite beyond the dimension of words and ideas.
    ... Malcolm Muggeridge (1903-1990), Something Beautiful for God: Mother Teresa of Calcutta, London: Collins, 1971, p. 127 (see the book)
    See also 1 John 4:11-12; John 13:34-35; Mark 12:31; Luke 10:27; 1 Cor. 13:13; 1 John 2:5-6; 3:24; 4:17-18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may Your Spirit animate Your church to Your glory.
