Muggeridge: the Cross and the commandments

Friday, April 19, 2019
    Good Friday
    Commemoration of Alphege, Archbishop of Canterbury, Martyr, 1012
    [Jesus:] “All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
    —Matthew 22:40 (NIV)
    As out of Jesus’ affliction came a new sense of God’s love and a new basis for love between men, so out of our affliction we may grasp the splendour of God’s love and how to love one another. Thus the consummation of the two commandments was on Golgotha; and the Cross is, at once, their image and their fulfillment.
    ... Malcolm Muggeridge (1903-1990), Jesus: the Man who Lives, London: Collins, 1975, p. 133 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 22:36-40; Rom. 5:8; 1 Cor. 15:3; Heb. 9:15; 1 Pet. 3:18
Quiet time reflection:
    All desires are fulfilled in You, Lord.
