Robinson: where Scripture leads

Tuesday, June 4, 2019
    Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.
    —Acts 17:11 (NIV)
    I am verily persuaded the Lord has more truth yet to break forth out of his holy Word. For my part, I cannot sufficiently bewail the condition of the Reformed churches, who are come to a period in religion, and will go at present no farther than the instruments of their reformation. The Lutherans cannot be drawn to go beyond what Luther saw; ... and the Calvinists, you see, stick fast where they were left by that great man of God, who yet saw not all things... I beseech you, remember, it is an Article of your church-covenant, that you be ready to receive whatever truth shall be made known to you from the written Word of God. [1620]
    ... John Robinson (1576?-1625), quoted in The History of the Puritans, or Protestant Noncomformists, Daniel Neal, Harper, 1844, vol. 1, p. 269 (see the book)
    See also Acts 17:11; Luke 12:57; Rom. 12:2; 1 Cor. 2:14-15; 14:29; Phil. 4:8; 1 Thes. 5:21
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, open our hearts to Your word, wherever it may lead.
