Lawrence: confidence in God

Sunday, June 11, 2017
    Trinity Sunday
    Feast of Barnabas the Apostle
    Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.
    —Romans 8:1-2 (NIV)
    Accustom yourself then by degrees thus to worship Him, to beg His grace, to offer Him your heart from time to time, in the midst of your business, even every moment, if you can. Do not always scrupulously confine yourself to certain rules, or particular forms of devotion, but act with a general confidence in God, with love and humility.
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691), The Practice of the Presence of God, New York, Revell, 1895, Seventh Letter, p. 34-35 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 8:1-2; Eph. 3:12; Heb. 4:16; 10:35; 1 John 3:21-22
Quiet time reflection:
    Walk with me, Lord.
