St. John Chrysostom: the Player and the instrument

Tuesday, March 6, 2018
    However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him“— but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.
    —1 Corinthians 2:9-10 (NIV)
    Seeing, then, it is no longer the fisherman, the son of Zebedee, but He who knoweth “the deep things of God”, the Holy Spirit, I mean, that striketh this lyre, let us hearken accordingly. For he will say nothing to us as a man, but what he saith, he will say from the depths of the Spirit.
    ... St. John Chrysostom (345?-407), The Homilies of S. John Chrysostom on the Gospel of St. John, v. I, Oxford: Parker, 1848, p. 3 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 2:9-10; Job 12:22; Ps. 42:7; 92:5-7; Dan. 2:22; Rom. 11:33-36
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make my testimony to You ring loud and clear.
