Bonhoeffer: the narrow way

Tuesday, April 9, 2019
    Feast of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Teacher, Martyr, 1945
    [Jesus:] “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
    —John 16:33 (NIV)
    There remains for us only the very narrow way, often extremely difficult to find, of living every day as though it were our last, and yet living in faith and responsibility as though there were to be a great future.
    ... Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945), “After Ten Years”, in A Testament to Freedom: the essential writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Geffrey B. Kelly, F. Burton Nelson, eds., HarperCollins, 1995, p. 484 (see the book)
    See also John 16:33; Jer. 32:15; Matt. 6:34; John 14:27; Heb. 13:5-6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may I have no expectations save Your promises.
