Atkinson: church health

Friday, November 23, 2012
    Commemoration of Clement, Bishop of Rome, Martyr, c.100
    And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
    —Matthew 24:14 (NIV)
    [After the Ascension, the Apostles] returned to the city, conscious that they were entrusted with the Gospel message which was the salvation of the world, and at the end of their task they would again meet face to face the Lord Who had committed it to them. From that day to this, these two themes have been inseparable from health in the church.
    ... B. F. C. Atkinson (1895-1971), Valiant in Fight, London: Inter-Varsity Fellowship of Evangelical Unions, 1937, p. 11 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may Your people be busy in preaching the gospel when You return.
