CQOD: 02/24/06 -- Wirt: the Gospel in action

Christian Quotation of the Day

February 24, 2006
    For truly, I say to you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ will by no means lose his reward.
    -- Mark 9:41 (ESV)

    Christianity is not a religion but a relationship of love expressed toward God and men. The church is committed by its Founder to reach out in love to every movement that upbuilds character and integrity in men, and every gesture that aims to resolve the differences that estrange human beings from each other. The Gospel in its free course goes hand-in-hand with the cup of cold water.
    ... Sherwood Eliot Wirt (b.1911), The Social Conscience of the Evangelical [1968]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, heap blessings on _____ and _____ who nourished me in time of need.
