Porter: the nails

Monday, August 3, 2009

    When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.
    —Colossians 2:13,14 (NIV)

    They haled him trembling to the Judgment Seat.
“O Lord, the man who made the nails that pierced Thy hands and feet!”
The Master laid a thin, scarred hand upon the shame-bowed head.
“They were good nails,” he said.
    ... Kenneth W. Porter (1905-1981), The high plains, John Day, 1938, p. 84 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your grace is flowing to Your people.
