CQOD: 06/30/06 -- Tillotson: growth in perfection

Christian Quotation of the Day

June 30, 2006
    See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.
    -- Matthew 18:10 (ESV)

    I think that there is no reason to doubt but that the blessed spirits above, who continually “behold the face of their Father,” are still writing after this copy which is here propounded to us, and endeavoring to be “perfect as their Father which is in heaven is perfect,” still aspiring after a nearer and more perfect resemblance of God, whose goodness and mercy is far beyond and before that of any creature, that they may be for ever approaching nearer to it and yet never overtake it.
    ... John Tillotson (1630-1694)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, by each step, You are bringing Your children to Heaven.
