CQOD: 12/17/06 -- Eckhart: the sufficiency of faith

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 17, 2006
Commemoration of Eglantine Jebb, Social Reformer, Founder of ’Save the Children’, 1928
    ... yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified.
    -- Galatians 2:16 (ESV)

    The less you feel and the more firmly you believe, the more praiseworthy is your faith and the more it will be esteemed and appreciated; for real faith is much more than a mere opinion of man. In it we have true knowledge: in truth, we lack nothing save true faith.
    ... Meister Eckhart (1260?-1327?)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, help me to cast aside the counterfeits, that I may cling to Your gift of faith.
