Chadwick: ablaze

Saturday, May 23, 2015
    Commemoration of Petroc, Abbot of Padstow, 6th century
    Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.
    —Acts 2:41 (NIV)
    It is fire that prevails. For fifty days the facts of the Gospel were complete, but no conversions were recorded. Pentecost registered three thousand souls. It is the cause that sets men ablaze that wins converts.
    ... Samuel Chadwick (1860-1932), The Way to Pentecost, Hodder and Stoughton, 1932, p. 98-99 (see the book)
    See also Acts 2:41; 1:4-8; 4:5; 13:48; Heb. 12:29; Jude 1:22-23
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, place Your fire in our hearts.
