Brunner: pass it on

Wednesday, June 5, 2013
    Feast of Boniface (Wynfrith) of Crediton, Archbishop of Mainz, Apostle of Germany, Martyr, 754
    But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him.
    —2 Corinthians 2:14 (NIV)
    Every one who receives this Word, and by it salvation, receives along with it the duty of passing this Word on... Where there is no mission, there is no Church, and where there is neither Church nor mission, there is no faith.
    ... Emil Brunner (1889-1966), The Word and the World, London: Student Christian Movement Press, 1931, p. 108 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 2:14; Ps. 22:30-31; 98:3; 102:18; Matt. 24:14; 28:19; Mark 16:15; John 20:29; Rom. 10:18; 15:18-19; 16:25-26; 2 Cor. 2:15-17; Col. 1:6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, increase our faith, that we may greatly desire to tell of Your mercy.
