Tyndale: all service pleasing to God

Tuesday, October 6, 2020
    Feast of William Tyndale, Translator of the Scriptures, Martyr, 1536
    [Jesus:] “Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last.”
    —Luke 13:30 (NIV)
    Now if thou compare deed to deed, there is difference betwixt washing of dishes, and preaching of the word of God; but as touching to please God, none at all: for neither that nor this pleaseth, but as far forth as God hath chosen a man, hath put his Spirit in him, and purified his heart by faith and trust in Christ.
    Let every man therefore wait on the office wherein Christ hath put him, and therein serve his brethren.
    ... William Tyndale (1492?-1536), “Parable of the Wicked Mammon” [1527], in Doctrinal Treatises and Introductions, Cambridge: The University Press, 1848, p. 102 (see the book)
    See also Luke 13:30; Mark 9:35; John 13:14-16; 1 Cor. 12:28
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me a willing heart to do the service You have appointed me to.
