Phillips: our honour in sharing

Saturday, April 25, 2020
    Feast of Mark the Evangelist
    You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
    —Hebrews 10:36 (NIV)
    It is essential to our life as Christians, that we should recognize cheerfully and realistically that no worth-while work is accomplished without patience and sacrifice; and more important still, that we should realize with a sudden quickening of the pulses that the cost we bear is, not a kind of occupational nuisance, but the honour of sharing God’s cost in bringing men to Himself and changing them from being wayward human beings into sons of Himself.
    ... J. B. Phillips (1906-1982), Making Men Whole, London: Highway Press, 1952, p. 45 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 10:36; 1 Cor. 12:4; 2 Cor. 1:5-7; Col. 1:24; Heb. 12:1
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You bore the cost that I could not pay.
