CQOD: 11/07/07 -- Tertullian: closer than ever

Christian Quotation of the Day

November 7, 2007
Feast of Willibrord of York, Archbishop of Utrecht, Apostle of Frisia, 739
    Jesus replied, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven."
    -- Matthew 22:29,30 (NIV)

    In that age they will neither marry nor be given in marriage, but will be as the angels. We are destined to a better state—destined to rise to a spiritual consortship. So we, who shall be with God, shall be together: since we shall all be with the one God, though there be many mansions in the house of the same Father; and, in eternal life, God will still less separate them whom He has joined together, than, in this lesser life, He allows them to be separated.
    ... Tertullian (160?-230?)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I long to live in that better state, according to Your promise.
