CQOD: 07/02/07 -- Law: finished, once for all

Christian Quotation of the Day

July 2, 2007
    [Christ] himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.
    -- 1 Peter 2:24 (NIV)

    Wonder not then that all the true followers of Christ, the saints of every age, have so gloried in the cross of Christ, have imputed such great things to it, have desired nothing so much as to be partakers of it, to live in constant union with it. It is because His sufferings, His death and cross, were the fullness of His victory over all the works of the devil. Not an evil in flesh and blood, not a misery of life, not a chain of death, not a power of hell and darkness, but were all baffled, broken, and overcome by the process of a suffering and dying Christ. Well, therefore, may the cross of Christ be the glory of Christians!
    ... William Law (1686-1761), The Spirit of Love [1752-4]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I receive Your reminder of Christ's suffering and death always in communion.
