Bonhoeffer: demonstrated in Jesus' life

Wednesday, January 22, 2020
    Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ for the faith of God’s elect and the knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness—a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time, and at his appointed season he brought his word to light through the preaching entrusted to me by the command of God our Savior...
    —Titus 1:1-3 (NIV)
    It is not in our life that God’s help and presence must still be proved, but rather God’s presence and help have been demonstrated for us in the life of Jesus Christ. It is, in fact, more important for us to know what God did to Israel and to His Son Jesus Christ, than to seek what God intends for us today.
    ... Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945), Life Together [1954], tr. Daniel W. Bloesch & James H. Burtness, Fortress Press, 2004, p. 62 (see the book)
    See also John 1:17-18; Rom. 1:1-4; Tit. 1:1-3; Heb. 1:1-2; 13:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have reigned supreme over all history.
