CQOD: 11/26/05 -- Baillie: giving thanks to God

Christian Quotation of the Day

November 26, 2005
    Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.
    -- 2 Corinthians 9:15 (KJV)

    I thank Thee, O Lord God, that though with liberal hand Thou hast at all times showered thy blessing upon our human kind, yet in Jesus Christ Thou hast done greater Things for us than Thou ever didst before:
    Making home sweeter and friends dearer:
    Turning sorrow into gladness and pain into the soul’s victory:
    Robbing death of its sting:
    Robbing sin of its power:
    Making peace more peaceful and joy more joyful and faith and hope more secure.
    ... John Baillie (1886-1960), A Diary of Private Prayer [1949]
