CQOD: 02/06/08 -- Carlyle: holiness vs. sin

Christian Quotation of the Day

February 6, 2008
Ash Wednesday
Commemoration of Martyrs of Japan, 1597
    Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
    -- Isaiah 60:1-3 (NIV)

    The Christian must be consumed with the infinite beauty of holiness and the infinite damnability of sin.
    ... Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, take my sin away, that I may see Your holiness.
