Newbigin: the story for us

Sunday, December 5, 2021
    Advent II
    And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed? So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.
    —Hebrews 3:18-19 (NIV)
    History is to be understood as the patient wrestling of God with a stupid, deluded, and rebellious people—stupid and rebellious precisely because they insist on seeing themselves as the center of the story.
    ... Lesslie Newbigin (1909-1998), Truth and Authority in Modernity, Gracewing Publishing, 1996, p. 38-39 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 3:15-19; Ex. 32:7-9; Deut. 9:6; Ps. 95:7-11; Acts 7:51-53
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, help me to cast away my unbelief.
