CQOD: 09/10/05 -- Edwards: God's church has never failed

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 10, 2005
    [To Elijah:] Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.
    -- 1 Kings 19:18 (KJV)

    The work of God in converting souls out of the hands of Satan, was begun soon after the fall of man, has been carried on in the world ever since to this day, and will be to the end of the world. God has always, ever since erecting of the church of the redeemed after the fall, had such a church in the world. Though oftentimes it has been reduced to a very narrow compass and to low circumstances; yet it has never wholly failed.
    ... Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758), A History of the Work of Redemption [1773]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, thank You for Your church.
