CQOD: 09/23/07 -- Law: the desire for salvation

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 23, 2007
    [Jesus:] All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.
    -- John 6:37-39 (NIV)

    Oh plain, and easy, and simple way of salvation, wanting no subtleties of art or science, no borrowed learning, no refinements of reason, but all done by the simple natural motion of every heart, that truly longs after God. For no sooner is the finite desire of the creature in motion towards God, but the infinite desire of God is united with it, co-operates with it. And in this united desire of God and the creature, is the salvation and life of the soul brought forth.
    ... William Law (1686-1761), The Spirit of Prayer [1749]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I will never be separated from You.
