Wycliffe: in the family

Thursday, December 31, 2020
    Commemoration of John Wycliffe, Reformer, 1384
    Understand, then, that those who believe are children of Abraham.
    —Galatians 3:7 (NIV)
    For what man it be that Christ converts and saves him in heaven, he is Israel’s son, for he supplants the fiend as Jacob did Esau, and he is made a man that sees God by faith. And Christ is called thus both Jacob and Israel, and other holy fathers that prefigured Christ, and thus men are made by grace to be of the house of Jacob.
    ... John Wycliffe (1320?-1384), Sermon XLI, in Select English Works of John Wyclif, v. 1, Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1869, p. 114 (see the book)
    See also Gal. 3:7; Matt. 15:21-28; Rom. 4:12,16-21; 9:7-8; Gal. 3:16,29
Quiet time reflection:
    Thank You, Lord, for making me part of Your family.
