Zinzendorf: one passion

Tuesday, August 14, 2018
    Commemoration of Maximilian Kolbe, Franciscan Friar, Priest, Martyr, 1941
    [Jesus] told them, “This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.”
    —Luke 24:46-48 (NIV)
    I have but one passion—it is He, it is He alone. The world is the field, and the field is the world; and henceforth that country shall be my home where I can be most used in winning souls for Christ.
    ... Count Nicolaus Ludwig von Zinzendorf (1700-1760), quoted in Living Abundantly, Kirby Page, Farrar & Rinehart, Incorporated, 1944, p. 322 (see the book)
    See also Luke 24:46-48; Acts 4:18-20; 13:47; 1 Cor. 9:22; 12:3; 16:9
Quiet time reflection:
    Send me, Lord, with Your word for dying sinners.
