Maurice: children

April 1, 2009
    Commemoration of Frederick Denison Maurice, Priest, teacher, 1872

    As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath.
    -- Ephesians 2:1-3 (NIV)

    We do not cease to be children because we are disobedient children.
    ... Frederick Denison Maurice (1805-1872), The Kingdom of Christ, New York: D. Appleton, 1843, pp. 266-267. (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I have not deserved to be Your child.
