CQOD: 09/02/07 -- Allen: the need for Jesus

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 2, 2007
Commemoration of Martyrs of Papua New Guinea, 1942
    If we [Peter and John] are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a cripple and are asked how he was healed, then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. He is "the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone." Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.
    -- Acts 4:9-12 (NIV)

    The apostles were moved, not so much by an intellectual apprehension, as by a spiritual illumination. They met men, and the need of those men whom they met cried aloud to them. Their own desire for the revelation of the glory of Jesus in the salvation of men went out towards those whom they met, and was immediately answered by the recognition of the need of those whom they met for Jesus Christ.
    ... Roland Allen (1869-1947), Pentecost and the World [1917]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make me sensitive to people's need for Christ.
