Rutherford: faith of a friend

Wednesday, May 16, 2018
    Commemoration of Caroline Chisholm, Social Reformer, 1877
    For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
    —1 Corinthians 1:18 (NIV)
    To believe Christ’s cross to be a friend, as he himself is a friend, is also a special act of faith.
    ... Samuel Rutherford (1600-1664), Letters of Samuel Rutherford, Edinburgh: William Whyte & Co., 1848, letter, Feb 13, 1640, p. 611 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 1:18; Rom. 6:4-6; 1 Cor. 1:22-23; Gal. 2:20; 5:24; 6:14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, help me to discard the world’s wisdom concerning the cross.
