CQOD: 06/18/07 -- Law: the purpose of revelation

Christian Quotation of the Day

June 18, 2007
    May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
    -- 2 Corinthians 13:14 (NIV)

    The doctrine of the Holy Trinity is wholly practical; it is revealed to us, to discover to us our high origin and the greatness of our fall, and to show us the deep and profound operation of the triune God in the recovery of the divine life in our souls: that by the means of this mystery thus discovered, our piety may be rightly directed, our faith and prayer have their proper objects, [and] the workings and aspiring of our own hearts may cooperate and correspond with that triune life in the Deity, which is always desiring to manifest itself in us.
    ... William Law (1686-1761), An Appeal to All that Doubt [1740]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me to know You more deeply.
