Thomas a Kempis: Jesus the treasure

Tuesday, May 28, 2013
    Commemoration of Lanfranc, Prior of Le Bec, Archbishop of Canterbury, 1089
    And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
    —1 John 5:11-12 (NIV)
    He who finds Jesus finds a rare treasure, indeed, a good above every good, whereas he who loses Him loses more than the whole world. The man who lives without Jesus is the poorest of the poor, whereas no one is so rich as the man who lives in His grace.
    ... Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471), Of the Imitation of Christ [1418], Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1877, II.viii.2, p. 96 (see the book)
    See also 1 John 5:11-12; Pr. 2:4-5; Matt. 6:19-21; 10:39; 13:44-46; Luke 9:24-25; Eph. 3:8; Col. 2:2-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have enriched Your people beyond measure.
