CQOD: 09/19/07 -- Reeves: the foundation of fellowship

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 19, 2007
Commemoration of Theodore of Tarsus, Archbishop of Canterbury, 690
    Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
    -- 1 Peter 2:10 (NIV)

    The primary truth about our church membership is not that we are members of a particular congregation, but that we have been born into this new race of human beings, the Christian race, which is made up of people out of every nation and tribe and class. Further, each local church is a church only in so far as it is the expression, in a particular place, of this new race that has come into the world through Christ Jesus. It is the mighty acts of God in Him that are the guarantee of our fellowship in the Church.
    ... Ambrose Reeves (1899-1980), Bishop of Johannesburg [1956]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, without You, there is no fellowship.
