MacDonald: almost anything for Jesus

Saturday, May 2, 2020
    Feast of St. Athanasius, Bishop of Alexandria, Teacher, 373
    [Jesus:] Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
    —John 13:17 (NIV)
    How many are there not who seem capable of anything for the sake of the church or of Christianity, except the one thing the Lord cares about—that they should do what He tells them! He would deliver them from themselves into the liberty of the sons of God, make them His brothers; they leave Him to vaunt their church.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), “The Displeasure of Jesus”, in Unspoken Sermons, Third Series, London: Longmans, Green, 1889, p. 188 (see the book)
    See also John 13:17; Matt. 12:50; Luke 11:28; John 14:15,23; 15:14; Eph. 4:1; 1 Tim. 6:13-16; Jas. 1:22-25
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, break our institutions to Your service.
