Schaeffer: doctrine

Saturday, November 11, 2017
    Feast of Martin, Monk, Bishop of Tours, 397
    [Jesus:] “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”
    —Matthew 5:6 (NIV)
    Doctrinal rightness and rightness of ecclesiastical position are important, but only as a starting point to go on into a living relationship—and not as ends in themselves.
    ... Francis A. Schaeffer (1912-1984), Letters of Francis A. Schaeffer: Spiritual Reality in the Personal Christian, Good News Publishers, 1986, p. 46 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 5:6; Ps. 42:1-2; 63:1-2; 84:2; 107:8-9; Luke 6:21,25; John 6:27
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant that we are not swept away in intellectual debates but in the fullness of Your Holy Spirit.
