de Caussade: come to the Bible

Saturday, February 10, 2018
    Commemoration of Scholastica, Abbess of Plombariola, c.543
    So the word of God spread. The number of disciples in Jerusalem increased rapidly, and a large number of priests became obedient to the faith.
    —Acts 6:7 (NIV)
    Come [to the Bible], not to study the history of God’s divine action, but to be its object; not to learn what it has achieved throughout the centuries and still does, but simply to be the subject of its operation.
    ... Jean-Pierre de Caussade (1675-1751), The Sacrament of the Present Moment, Harper & Row, 1982, p. 73 (see the book)
    See also Acts 6:7; Matt. 22:29; John 5:39-40,46; Acts 8:32-35; Col. 3:16; 2 Tim. 3:14-17; 2 Pet. 1:19-21
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have spoken Your word in my heart.
