Sayers: Christian principles without Christ

Saturday, January 27, 2018
    Then [Jesus] went down to Capernaum, a town in Galilee, and on the Sabbath began to teach the people. They were amazed at his teaching, because his message had authority.
    —Luke 4:31-32 (NIV)
    That you cannot have Christian principles without Christ is becoming increasingly clear [in the world today], because their validity as principles depends on Christ’s authority.
    ... Dorothy Leigh Sayers (1893-1957), lecture [1940], in Christian Letters to a Post-Christian World, Eerdmans, 1969, p. 34 (see the book)
    See also Luke 4:31-32; Jer. 23:29; Matt. 7:28-29; 13:54; 28:18; Mark 1:21-22; Luke 21:15; John 7:46
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep me from leaning on my own understanding but to see Christ behind everything.
