Fox: the Author of our faith

Sunday, November 12, 2017
    During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him
    —Hebrews 5:7-9 (NIV)
    Why should any man have power over any other man’s faith, seeing Christ is the author of it?
    ... George Fox (1624-1691), Journal, v. II, Philadelphia: B. & T. Kite, 1808, p. 118 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 5:7-9; Ps. 51:6; Rom. 1:16-17; Heb. 9:15; 2 Thess. 2:16; 2 Tim. 2:10; 1 John 5:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have all authority.
