CQOD: 02/21/07 -- Lake: faith despite the price

Christian Quotation of the Day

February 21, 2007
Ash Wednesday
    ... nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
    -- 2 Timothy 1:12b (KJV)

    Faith is not belief in spite of evidence, but life in scorn of consequences—a courageous trust in the great purpose of all things, and pressing forward to finish the work which is in sight, whatever the price may be.
    ... Kirsopp Lake (1872-1946), Landmarks in the History of Early Christianity [1920]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are sovereign in all consequences.
