Chambers: the life of God

Saturday, March 31, 2018
    Holy Saturday
    Commemoration of John Donne, Priest, Poet, 1631
    For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
    —1 Peter 1:18-19 (NIV)
    When Jesus Christ shed his blood on the cross, it was not the blood of a martyr; or the blood of one man for another; it was the life of God poured out to redeem the world.
    ... Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) (see the book)
    See also 1 Pet. 1:18-19; Isa. 53:4-7; Matt. 20:26-28; 26:28; Acts 20:28; Col. 1:13-14; Heb. 9:12-14; 1 Pet. 2:22-24; 3:18; 1 John 2:2; Rev. 5:9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I do not belong to myself but to You, for You redeemed me.
