CQOD: 02/22/06 -- Short: the testimony of witnesses

Christian Quotation of the Day

February 22, 2006
    May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
    -- Romans 15:13 (ESV)

    The New Testament is an intensely personal document. It is not the effort of a group of men who are out to prove something to us by the force of their rational arguments. But it is the testimony, or testament, of a group of witnesses... who are bent on simply reporting to us the experience of a love that overtook them and overwhelmed them, a peace that passed all their understanding, and a peace that they in turn would pass on to us.
    ... Robert L. Short (b.1932)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I receive Your Testament.
