Temple: Christian fear

Tuesday, November 6, 2018
    Feast of William Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury, Teacher, 1944
    [Jesus:] “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn “‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’”
    —Matthew 10:34-36 (NIV)
    If Christianity has never frightened us, we have not yet found out what it is.
    ... William Temple (1881-1944), Studies in the Spirit and Truth of Christianity, Macmillan and Co.,Limited, 1914, p. 82 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 10:34-36,Mic. 7:5; Matt. 10:21-23; 24:9-11; Mark 13:11-13; Luke 21:16-19; John 14:27; Rom. 8:36-37
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are our only strength against trials.
