CQOD: 11/30/07 -- Kates: the reason why

Christian Quotation of the Day

November 30, 2007
Feast of Andrew the Apostle
    It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
    -- Ephesians 4:11-13 (NIV)

    “Why was I born?” “Why am I here?” Theology answers, “You are here to grow, to grow up in every way unto the full stature of a man newborn in Christ.”
    ... Frederick Ward Kates (b.1920), A Moment Between Two Eternities [1965]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, bring me into conformity with Christ.
