Brunner: as fire

April 12, 2009

    They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
    -- Acts 2:3,4 (NIV)

    The Church exists by mission as fire exists by burning. Without mission there is really no Church.
    ... Emil Brunner (1889-1966), The Word and the World, London: SCM Press, 1931, p. 11 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have sent Your people to the nations.
