CQOD: 12/12/06 -- Loukes: the divine intent

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 12, 2006
    Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.
    -- Ephesians 5:25-27 (ESV)

    The Church is not a tribe for the improvement in holiness of people who think it would be pleasant to be holy, a means to the integration of character for those who cannot bear their conflicts. It is a statement of the divine intention for humanity.
    ... Harold Loukes

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your Spirit inhabits Your church.
