Packer: Scripture

March 4, 2009
    Commemoration of Felix, Bishop, Apostle to the East Angles, 647

    And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
    -- 2 Peter 1:19-21 (NIV)

    God the Father is the giver of Holy Scripture; God the Son is the theme of Holy Scripture; and God the Spirit is the author, authenticator, and interpreter of Holy Scripture.
    ... J. I. Packer (b.1926)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your word brings me to repentance.
