Oxenham: generations to come

Sunday, October 8, 2017
    Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”
    —Mark 1:14-15 (ESV)
    Some people are reluctant to consider the future, arguing that it must be left to solve its own problems and to shape its own beliefs. In all right efforts for the future, religion must be given first place. No provision to secure peace or just social principles can be worth much unless the foremost aim be to establish the Kingdom of God. It is not the minds and bodies only of generations to come that have to be remembered, but their immortal souls.
    ... John Oxenham (1852-1941), Winds of the Dawn, London, New York: Longmans, Green, 1930
    See also Mark 1:14-15; Ps. 22:30-31; 78:5-6; 102:18; Matt. 4:17; 10:7; Luke 10:9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your Kingdom is from everlasting to everlasting.
