CQOD: 04/01/06 -- Owen: Christian motivation

Christian Quotation of the Day

April 1, 2006
Commemoration of Frederick Denison Maurice, Priest, teacher, 1872
    For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil. Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade others. But what we are is known to God, and I hope it is known also to your conscience.
    -- 2 Corinthians 5:10-11 (ESV)

    It is the “terror of the Lord” that causes us to “persuade” others, but it is the love of Christ that constraineth us to live to Him.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may You extend Your grace to _____ and _____, for whom I fear at judgment and who need to know of the life in You.
