CQOD: 03/01/07 -- Allen: expecting a response

Christian Quotation of the Day

March 1, 2007
Feast of David, Bishop of Menevia, Patron of Wales, c.601
    And he said to them, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men."
    -- Matthew 4:19 (ESV)

    To preach the Gospel requires that the preacher should believe that he is sent to those whom he is addressing at the moment, because God has among them those whom He is at the moment calling; it requires that the speaker should expect a response.
    ... Roland Allen (1869-1947), Missionary Methods: St. Paul’s or ours? [1927]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I hear Your call to me.
