Robertson: the Christian debating team

Sunday, June 2, 2013
    The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.
    —1 John 2:17 (NIV)
    Christian life is action; not a speculating, not a debating, but a doing. One thing, and only one, in the world, has eternity stamped upon it. Feelings pass; resolves and thoughts pass; opinions change. What you have done lasts—lasts in you. Through ages, through eternity, what you have done for Christ, that, and only that, you are.
    ... Frederick W. Robertson (1816-1853), Sermons Preached at Trinity Chapel, Brighton, v. III, Boston: Ticknor & Fields, 1859, p. 194 (see the book)
    See also 1 John 2:15-17; Ps. 143:10; Matt. 7:21; Mark 3:35; John 7:17; Rom. 12:1-2; 1 Cor. 9:25; 2 Tim. 4:8; 1 Pet. 4:1-2; 5:4; Rev. 14:13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may I be a vessel for the expression of Your concern for people.
