Temple: knowledge of a Person

Friday, November 6, 2015
    Feast of William Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury, Teacher, 1944
    “Shout and be glad, O Daughter of Zion. For I am coming, and I will live among you,” declares the LORD.
    —Zechariah 2:10 (NIV)
    Knowledge of God can be fully given to man only in a Person, never in a doctrine... Faith is not the holding of correct doctrines, but personal fellowship with the living God.
    ... William Temple (1881-1944), Nature, Man and God, London: Macmillan, 1934, 1949, p. 321-322 (see the book)
    See also Gen. 5:24; 6:9; Ex. 29:45; 33:14-17; Zech. 2:10; Mark 9:37; John 14:23; 2 Cor. 6:16; 1 John 1:5-7; Rev. 3:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I know Your presence with me this moment.
