CQOD: 02/08/08 -- Law: death to the passions

Christian Quotation of the Day

February 8, 2008
    Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires.
    -- Galatians 5:24 (NIV)

    There is nothing safe in religion, except in such a course of behavior that leaves nothing for corrupt nature to feed or live upon; which can only then be done when every degree of perfection we aim at is a degree of death to the passions of the natural man.
    ... William Law (1686-1761), Christian Regeneration [1739]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me a heart that seeks Your glory in self-control.
