Kates: you and heaven

Wednesday, May 23, 2018
    Commemoration of Petroc, Abbot of Padstow, 6th century
    May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
    —Romans 15:13 (NIV)
    The purpose of religion, at any rate, the Christian religion, is not to get you into heaven but to get heaven into you.
    ... Frederick Ward Kates (1910-1987), A Moment Between Two Eternities, New York: Harper & Row, 1965, p. 159 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 15:13; John 14:27; Eph. 5:18-20; 1 Pet. 1:8; Rev. 3:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are my hope.
