CQOD: 10/06/05 -- Chalmers: we are all missionaries

Christian Quotation of the Day

October 6, 2005
Feast of William Tyndale, Translator of the Scriptures, Martyr, 1536
    "Do not stop him," Jesus said. "No one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me, for whoever is not against us is for us."
    -- Mark 9:39,40 (NIV)

    Every man is a missionary, now and forever, for good or for evil, whether he intends or designs it or not. He may be a blot radiating his dark influence outward to the very circumference of society, or he may be a blessing spreading benediction over the length and breadth of the world. But a blank he cannot be: there are no moral blanks; there are no neutral characters.
    ... Thomas Chalmers (1780-1847)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make me a blessing in Christ to all those around me.
