Jones: the time for renewal

Monday, January 7, 2019
    Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.”
    —Matthew 13:34-35 (NIV)
    The new age cannot live on naturalism or on secularism. Life becomes sterile and futile without the depth and power which come from participation in eternal realities. But this new age cannot any more successfully live on religious faiths that are out of harmony with known truth, or that hang loose in the air, cut apart from the fundamental intellectual culture of the age. The hour has struck for the serious business of rediscovering the foundations, and of interpenetrating all life and thought with the truths and realities of a victorious religious faith.
    ... Rufus M. Jones (1863-1948), A Preface to Christian Faith in a New Age, New York: Macmillan Co., 1932, p. 42 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 13:34-35; Ps. 51:10; Rom. 12:1-2; 1 Cor. 1:20; 2:6-8; 3:18; 4:4; 2 Cor. 5:17; Eph. 1:18-19; 4:22-24; Col. 1:21-23; Tit. 3:4-5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have secured the victory.
