Thomas a Kempis: obedience

Wednesday, November 30, 2011
    Feast of Andrew the Apostle
    Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.
    —1 John 3:24 (NIV)
    Whoever strives to withdraw from obedience, withdraws from grace.
    ... Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471), Of the Imitation of Christ [1418], Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1877, III.xiii.1, p. 140 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your spirit keeps me seeking Your will.
